|photo by recipe author|
Preparation Time: 15 prep, 3 hours chill
- Juice and finely shredded zest from one large orange
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 ripe avocados, about 5 oz. apiece
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- One 8″ pie crust of your choice
- Fudge sauce
- Whipped cream
Measure orange juice; add a little water or more juice to equal 1/2 cup. Put the orange juice, zest (should be about 1 tablespoon), honey, coconut oil, cocoa, avocados, vanilla, and salt in a blender or food processor. Run on high for 1-2 minutes, until smooth.
Pour into prepared crust. Cover and refrigerate 2-3 hours until set. Let stand at room temperature 20-30 minutes before serving for softer texture.
Serve with a drizzle of fudge sauce and some whipped cream.
This pie can be frozen and thawed without messing up the texture.
