Lime avocado coconut pie

Smooth, creamy, tart, and sweet - this lime avocado coconut pie tastes like the tropics and is a perfect easy dessert for a spring or summer day!

It's Pi(e) Day and I'm sharing this new recipe for Lime Avocado Coconut Pie. You can find other pie recipes from some blogger friends at the bottom of this post along with all the other pie recipes I've already shared on the blog. We are a pie family and pies as our dessert of choice, so there is no shortage of pie recipes on this blog!

This pie is a very simple dessert to make, but it packs a flavor punch! Fresh lime juice and zest bring a perfect tartness to the pie that is balanced out by the sweetened condensed coconut milk and a sweet graham cracker crust. 

The filling for this pie is simply blended up in your food processor and doesn't require any baking. It only has a few ingredients and the longest part for me is zesting and juicing the limes. 

I've included a recipe for the homemade graham cracker crust, but if you purchase one already made, the pie becomes even more simple and completely no-bake.

The color of this pie makes is perfect for spring and summer desserts. It's bright and cheery and the tropical flavors will make it even better for a warm day.

I use Haas avocados, regular limes, and sweetened condensed coconut milk in this recipe. You can use Key limes if you prefer or have them. The number of limes you will need to reach 1/2 cup of fresh juice will depend on the size of the limes and how juicy they are, but it will take several. 

I love using sweetened condensed coconut milk in this recipe because it enhances the tropical flavor profile. You should be able to find it with the Asian foods in most larger grocery stores. You can use regular sweetened condensed milk if you can't find the coconut. It will still be sweet and delicious, just without the coconut flavor.

Lime Avocado Coconut Pie

Lime Avocado Coconut Pie

Smooth, creamy, tart, and sweet - this lime avocado coconut pie tastes like the tropics and is a perfect easy dessert for a spring or summer day!

Ingredients

For the crust
  • 1-1/2 cups finely ground graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
For the filling
  • 2 medium/large avocados, peeled and pit removed (about 2 cups of roughly chopped flesh)
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • whipped cream or whipped coconut cream, for serving

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all the graham cracker crust ingredients into a medium bowl until all coated in butter. Transfer to a 9-inch pie plate and gently press the crust in along the bottom and edges in an even layer.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes then remove to cool. When cooled, gently cover the crust and refrigerate while you prepare the filling.
  4. In a food processor, process all the filling ingredients until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed.
  5. When smooth, spread the filling evenly into the prepared crust. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, but overnight will help the filling set better and allow the pie to cut more easily.
  6. When the pie has chilled and set, cut into wedges and serve. Top with whipped cream or whipped coconut cream, if desired.

Notes:

Graham cracker crusts can be pretty fragile and the filling needs time to set, so chilling is critical. Overnight will yield the best results. I like to store a more fragile pie like this in a pie container (See link below) versus trying to cover it in plastic wrap.
