Tastes of Hawaii Recipe – Avocado Pie From Kauai's Old Plantation Days
Week 13—Avocado Pie!
Avocado Pie Recipe
(Your friends will think this is a Key Lime Pie!)
- 1 graham cracker pie crust
- 1 avocado, smashed
- 16 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
- 1 lime, juiced (you can substitute a lemon if you don’t have a lime)
- 1 Tbs. lime or lemon zest
- Chopped nuts or whipping cream for pie topping
Make your favorite graham cracker crust pie shell. Mix smashed avocado, softened cream cheese, lime/lemon juice, lime/lemon zest, and sweetened condensed milk (I like Eagle brand). Mix together until nice and smooth. Pour this mixture into pie shell. You can now sprinkle the top with chopped nuts and chill until ready to serve. You can serve with whipped cream or whipped topping.
As mentioned in my first recipe blog, Hawaii is a wonderful mix of cultures and each of these peoples brought with them their customs and foods. The early plantation days saw these combining cultures creating foods that are unique only to Hawaii.
We thank these early pioneers who planted and nurtured these plantation fields and created many of these amazing recipes. Because we have this rich Hawaiian heritage, I started this running blog that features recipes with a Hawaiian flair. If you love collecting recipes, please check back so that you can collect your favorites.
These will be recipes I have collected from old Hawaiian cookbooks, family, and friends that have been willing to share their family secrets. They will be limited to those with ingredients that can be found almost anywhere.
Collecting and sharing recipes of Hawaii is our hobby, but our passion is helping people with their real estate needs. My sister and I work as a team to help people make their dreams come true. Check out our listing of this successful vacation rental home (MLS# 241586) for sale in Poipu.
