I don't know about you but, when the weather changes, so do my taste buds. Thanks to the recent hot, humid weather, I have been all about the fresh, zesty flavour of lime.

One of my favourite ways to enjoy this often overlooked citrus fruit is in the form of a deconstructed key lime pie. It's super simple. Blend a few ingredients et voila! A healthy, craving-quenching key lime pie substitute that is actually good for you!


2 medium avocados, peeled and pitted

2 medium limes, juiced

3 Tbsp of pure maple syrup or light-tasting honey, such as clover or wildflower

Unsweetened organic coconut shreds (optional)

Lime zest, organic (optional)


Place the peeled and pitted avocados, lime juice, and sweetener of choice in a food processor. Blend until smooth and creamy, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed. Garnish with unsweetened coconut shreds and/or lime zest and serve.

This recipe yields a velvety, pudding-like texture. If you prefer a denser, more pie-like texture, add a coup...
