What an interesting pie!

I love all the ingredients..

is this served as a dessert? or a side dish?

Thanks, Eric, Austin Tx.

Here is my version
For the crust:
1 cup of chopped almonds
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons sunflower oil

Mix the crust ingredients and spread out on pie pan.

For the filling:
2 large or 3 medium avocados
1/3 cup lime juice
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk

Mix the filling ingredients and pour into pie pan.

Chill until filling has set up.

This has to be one of the oddest recipes I have seen.

I don't like sweet things.... but I do love avocadoes.... I may have to try it out of sheer curiosity!

Yes, we had it in Mexico. It reminds me of a silky pumpkin pie. The color is unusual, but it is so good!

It was still a mite loose, and as such was a little tricky getting it out of the pie pan.
Maybe I shoulda used a larger avocado. Maybe a 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk was too much. No matter, the proof is in the tasting and it was exceedingly good.
I did, however bypass the whipped topping. I ain't got much use for the stuff that comes in those tubs, and the spray can whipped topping seems overly sweet to me.
Nevertheless, (which BTW is a word that i have no clue how it came to be) I really like the flavor!
Thanks!
