Then he saw my plate of mashed avocado and looked at me with disgust and snarled, "Why are you ruining it?"
That's when I had to tell him to get the hell out of my kitchen.
Two hours later, after it had cooled and set, he declared it one of the best chocolate pies he's ever eaten.
A few notes on the recipe:
*You can't taste the avocado. I swear.
*The original recipe calls for you to cover the bottom of the pie crust with raspberries. I left those out. My daughter doesn't like a lot of "stuff" in her food and I knew once she saw the berries she'd have no interest in trying the pie. Plus, I was already sneaking avocado into her diet, let's not push it.
*This would be super easy to make vegan, if you were so inclined. Trade the skim milk for soy milk and get your hands on whatever vegan chocolate chip substitute you prefer and Voila it's a vegan pie.
*I'm wondering what it would taste like with a graham cracker crust. I'm betting delicious.
*The recipe says it makes four servings. I say it makes way more. Because of the richness of it, I was pretty full after eating just a sliver.
All in all, I think this is a really awesome pie recipe that I'd love to play around with a bit more to see what variations I can come up with.
