"When I lived in California, I had avocado trees in my backyard. So I came up with this about 38 years ago. Don't tell anybody it has avocado in it, they will think it's key lime pie! It's so easy and good!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (14 ounce) can

fresh lemon juice, or to taste
1 (9 inch)
pie shell, baked
This was a good recipe, but I added an extra avacado, the juice of 1 lime, and a package of reduced fat cream cheese. The avocado flavor was very faint, but it was really good.
I hate bad reviews from people that are not satisfied with anything but their own cooking. I am not a picky eater. I have to be honest though and say that I REALLY did not care for this pie.
This "key lime pie" was tremendously easy to make and so divine to eat. I used the juice of one lemon, about 1/8 cup and it was quite enough.
We have huge avocados here, and I got tired of always making avocado milkshakes. Spotted this and haven't turned back since! I agree that it needs to be a LARGE avocado (or 2 small store bought ones) to be good. It's become a family favorite. I make my own cookie crumble crust though since prepared pie shells are unavailable, but I'm certain that the pie shell would be delicious too.
I'm giving it a 4 for potential and creativity. I'm used to avocados in savory things not sweet, which I think made it harder for me to enjoy this. On that note this is really easy to make. I used a graham cracker crust and would stick with that. My pie wouldn't set up so I had to freeze it. First bite was good, very sweet, then suddnly felt overwhelmed by the sweet and was left with an avocado after taste that was a little weird for me. I did reduce the lemon juice a little and probably shouldn't have. I may try this with 8+oz of cream cheese next time. Personally I'm not planning on making this again soon, especially with how expensive avocados are. BUT if you like avocados give it a try.
its soooo yummyyyyyyyy I love it, with the same recipe I also made avocado ice cream. Good good good
This is the easiest pie ever. Great taste. My family loved it. Easy.
Loved this recipe, it really surprised me. I made an oreo cookie crumb base instead of using a pie shell. Yum!
