Just because we’re descending into darkness here in the UK doesn’t mean the rest of the world is and some of you might be felling a little fruity and zesty, so here’s a fab dessert recipe to tantalise your sunny taste-buds!! I made it during our brief summer and it was a definite hit. A word of warning though, it’s best consumed in one go (preferably with a little help from some friends) as it doesn’t look so great when the avocado starts to darken. It still tastes great if you don’t eat with your eyes!
Key Lime Pie
From 'Deliciously Ella' by Ella Woodward
Make the base by blending the almonds down to small pieces.
Add the dates and coconut oil and blend again until the mixture is sticky.
Press this mixture into a 20-25cm cake tin (the base should be about 2-3cm thick) and set aside.
To make the middle, scoop out the flesh of the avocados and blend in the processor with the lime juice, maple syrup and coconut milk until totally smooth and creamy.
Pour this onto the base and place in the freezer for about an hour and a half (it should be firm but not frozen).
When you're ready to serve, grate the zest of the lime over the top.
