Avocado Pie!

I saw this in Food Network magazine and was amazed that someone actually made avocados into a pie. Since I absolutely love avocados, I had to try it. The best way I can describe it is it has the texture of a key lime pie and some of the citrus flavor, but its sweeter like sweet cream ice cream. In fact, its very similar to avocado ice cream in flavor if you've ever had that. It's more of a novelty than anything, in my opinion anyways, but you can amaze your friends with this odd dessert, they'll think you're so adventurous. A bonus is that its really easy and inexpensive to make!

When was1 came for a visit he requested I make this for his birthday, and so I did. Opinions: was1 seemed to love it, skorzy liked it but agreed that it was a weird "how do you explain this" flavor, and I was kind of "eh" about it even though I love avocado. This mostly has to do with the fact that I'm pseudo allergic to avocados (shame! I know..) and in only certain applications (about 1/3 of the time) they give me that mild but uncomfortable itchy-mouth/throat allergic reaction, but again, only sometimes. This was one of those times. I think its only when avocado is combined with citrus, I haven't been able to figure out why its only sometimes and not other times. But eh, its more of a "hey look what I can do with avocados" than something I'd crave anyways.
