Healthy Key Lime Pie


This recipe is divine. Its from Deliciously Ella’s first book (here)I bet you’re thinking avocado, in a dessert?! Trust me, its amazing. I know a healthy key lime pie seems like an oxymoron. It is not. The topping was smooth and creamy, and nicely balanced by the tartness of the lime and smoky sweetness of the maple syrup. The base was crunchy, dense, sweet and worked perfectly with the topping. I wholeheartedly give this a thumbs up.
