Avocado Pie Recipes for Dessert (and Dinner!)

If you hear the words “avocado pie” and get weirded out, bear with us for a minute: Avocados are a fruit, just like cherries, blueberries, apples, and your other favorite pie fillings. Not to mention, they’re always good — that means their creamy texture, delicious flavor, and cool color bring a lot to the pie table. To prove it, we rounded up the best avocado pie recipes, both sweet AND savory.

 

And, as a bonus, we included our original recipe for an all-purpose avocado pie crust — scroll to the bottom!

 

 

6 Dessert Avocado Pie Recipes

1. Lemon-Avocado Pie

Citrus combines with ripe, creamy avocado in this cool confection. Condensed milk and a whipped cream topping complement the tart taste and the fluffy cloudlike texture. It’s like a little green slice of heaven.

 

2. Vegan Avocado Key Lime Pie

Creamy without cream, sweet without sugar. Oh yeah, that’s the good stuff. Watch this recipe video for the fluffiest and greenest key lime pie you’ve ever had.

 

3. Avocado Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie

Instant espresso gives a little extra something-something to this chocolate avocado pie filling. Smell those hints of almond and coconut? How about the bourbon, vanilla, and pecans? Those are the kinds of smells that make holiday get-togethers or dinner parties awesome.

 

Avocados are Sugar-Free? That’s Pretty Sweet.

Avocados contain only a trace amount of sugar — little enough to be officially classified as “sugar-free.” It’s facts like that that make dessert-time even sweeter.

 

4. Avocado Chocolate Pie

Chocolate cookie crumble crust. Do we have your attention? Just wait, there’s more: avocado and dark chocolate cream cheese filling. And to top it all off, coconut whipped cream. Serve this one up alongside a hot cup of evening coffee to make any day end on a good note.

 

5. Tropical Chocolate Pie

Another chocolate pie, but this time with a graham cracker crust and a lighter, fluffier filling. Drizzle each slice with a sticky-sweet coconut syrup to satisfy that sweet tooth in just one bite — though, you will want to eat the whole thing, of course.

 

6. Pumpkin Avocado Pie

Replace the butter with avocado in this pumpkin butter recipe for a new take on a fall favorite. Add the avocado-pumpkin pie filling to a premade pie pastry before baking for an hour at 350 F. Then, top each slice with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg for a creamy, autumnal avocado creation any time of the year.

 

It’s 🥧-O’-Clock: Is Your Avocado Ripe?

You can ripen your avocados quickly by placing them in a bag with a banana. Let them snuggle all night, and the avocado should be ready to make avocado pie recipes (and other goodies) in the morning.

 

3 Savory Avocado Pies

1. Chicken Corn Pie

This savory avocado pie recipe uses chicken breast as a crust of sorts, holding in a gooey cheesy interior stuffed with corn and topped with red peppers and avocado slices. And if you think that sentence is the most delicious thing you’ve ever read, just wait till you taste this pie.

 

2. Avocado Pizza Pies

These Mexican hand pies are stuffed with a meat trio: chorizo, beef, and pork. The best part, however, is dipping them head-first into a creamy avocado aioli. Mmm.

Homemade Avoca-dough

Looking for a new homemade pie crust recipe? This one uses avocado for an extra dose of goodness and is an awesome swap for premade crusts. This avoca-dough is good for dessert pies, savory pies, hand pies, pizzas, and quiches. Just be warned: Once you go avoca-dough, you’ll never go back.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 an Avocado From Mexico
  • 2½ c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 c. butter, diced
  • 1/4 c. shortening, diced
  • 1/3 c. ice cold water

 

Directions: In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the avocado. Add the flour, salt, and sugar and blend until combined. Add butter and shortening and mix until the dough has the consistency of pebbles. With the mixer running, add ice cold water until the dough comes together in the center of the mixer. Remove dough from bowl, wrap in plastic, and refrigerate for at least one hour.

 

Pie, Pie for Now 👋

After reading this blog, we bet that getting a pie in the face sounds way more delicious — as long as it’s one of our avocado pie recipes.
