Avocado Pastry

I got it down!

Who would have thought avocados and almond or peanut butter could complement each other so well?

I had a beautiful weekend. Who says you can’t eat healthy while eating out?
First I went to a Farmers market with the fam, and we indulged in a delicious vegan tamale.

And had yummy salads for lunch

AVOCADO TART RECIPE

Yields 7-8 tarts

ingredients
For the filling:
1 avocado
1/2 near death banana
1 leaf of kale
8 stevia drops or another sweetener
1 tsp lime juice
1 tsp maple syrup

For the crust:
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup pecans
3 prunes
4 pitted dates

what to do
1. Blend the pie crust ingredients in a food processor.
2. Spoon crust into individual cupcake liners and pack in by pressing spoon on crust.
3. Put in freezer.
4. Blend filling ingredients in the processor, just use kale leaves, no stem!
5. Spoon filling into crust filled liners and let set in freezer for a couple hours
6. When ready, take out and top with almond butter or peanut butter. I liked the almond butterĀ the best. Let thaw before eating. Eating it frozen tastes weird, and don’t let it thaw too much or it will not hold together.

Tomorrow I will show you what to do with the leftover crust crumbles!

  1. I can’t wait to try this! I definitely have near death bananas often. Cute way to put it. I really like that you let us know whether or not to use the kale leaf. Thanks!
