I’ve had a couple of requests for this recipe and I think it’s something that everyone needs to try once! Don’t let the main ingredient fool you, this is one of my all-time favorite desserts!
This is a pie that my mom used to make and we grew up calling it “Frog Pie.” We would never tell our friends that the pie was made from an avocado. For whatever reason, “Frog Pie” sounded more appetizing than “Avocado Pie” to the other kids! The real name is Jagger Pie although I have no idea what that means or where the recipe originally came from.
1 medium Hass avocado
1 can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
3 1/2 oz. fresh squeezed lemon juice
graham cracker pie crust made with brown sugar (use recipe on box of graham crackers)
heavy (whipping) cream, whipped without sugar
In blender, mix avocado and milk thoroughly then blend in lemon juice. Pour immediately into pie crust (it starts setting up fast). Top with unsweetened whipped cream (The pie is so sweet that the unsweetened cream is a nice balance) and refrigerate for a few hours.
Hope you enjoy it!
Avocado Update: Lately I’ve run across some other great avocado dessert recipes so I’ve decided to share those with you too. I think the most interesting one is the Chili-Lime Avocado Ice Cream found at The Weekly Dish, a great site I recently stumbled across. The ice cream combines the flavors of avocado, coconut, lime, and jalapeno peppers…yum! Another one is the Creamy Avocado Milkshake over at one of my favorite sites, The Traveler’s Lunchbox.
