Chocolate Avocado Pie

Originally posted June 22, 2010

I thought I would share a recipe with you today that I posted a long time ago when I only had 3 children and they were all much smaller. Sorry about the picture quality. I was still learning about food photography, not that I am that great now.

I am sure that you are thinking the same thing I was when I first saw the name of this recipe. "You have got to be kidding me. Who in their right mind would think of putting chocolate and avocados together?!" After reading the reviews and how everyone said it was really good I decided why not, I might as well give it a try.

The verdict: YUMMY!!

This pie was so good I let my kids have it with some fruit for lunch one day. From what I have read avocados have a neutral flavor that will compliment whatever they are added to. I ended up combining 2 different recipes so I could use what I already had on hand, and as usual I changed things around a bit.


1 cup soaked walnuts, in water (30-45 min.)
1 cup almonds
5 pitted dates
1 Tablespoon maple syrup
2 Tablespoons organic, raw cacao powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
pinch sea salt


2-3 ripe avocados
1/2 cup raw cacao 
1/2 cup rapadura
1/4 teaspoon salt

Topping: (optional)

Really any fruit you like

To make the crust place all crust ingredients in a food processor and blend until sticky.
Press mixture into a pie plate greased with coconut oil

To make the filling place all filling ingredients in food processor and blend until smooth
pour into prepared crust.

Chill 1-2 hours before serving.

Top with your choice of fruit.

This pie is very rich and tastes a bit like a chocolate cheesecake. It is also full of healthy, raw ingredients that are actually good for you.

I can't wait to try it out on some family members who think health food is supposed to taste bad.
