Avocado Icebox Pie

I hope you didn’t use up all of your avocados for Cinco de Mayo guacamole…if you did, you’re gonna want to get some more! Even the non-avocado fans in my house (which would be everyone except myself) loved this Avocado Icebox Pie.

A perfectly ripe avocado is a thing of beauty

Think cool, creamy lemon pie…with a gentle floral note that you can’t quite place. That would be the avocado. It’s subtle, but it’s there. In fact, there are really just three simple ingredients to the filling: avocados, sweetened condensed milk and lemon.

A simple 3-ingredient filling - avocado, sweetened condensed milk, lemon

Love that color!

It all blends down to the most velvety, pudding-like filling. Without eggs, there’s no need to bake it – all you do is chill the pie in its graham cracker crust for 3 or 4 hours. I should note that the texture, even after chilling all day, was still on the softer side (don’t expect it to firm up like a cheesecake). I didn’t mind this at all, but if you prefer things a bit firmer I’d recommend experimenting with adding more avocado to the mix.

With hot summer temps approaching, I can’t wait to make this amazing (and incredibly easy), no-bake pie many more times this season!

I love how naturally creamy avocado is – I’ve used it in smoothies, but never a pie – looks great!
