Frozen Mojito Pie
A healthier take on the classic frozen drink, made with just 6 simple ingredients and no oil!
- 2 cups almonds
- 1 1/4 cup pitted dates
- Pinch of sea salt
- Splash of water to help blend, if needed
- 3 avocados (not over-ripe)
- 1/2 cup maple syrup , to taste
- 1/3 cup lime juice
- 1/4 cup mint leaves, to taste
- Extra lime slices, zest and mint for garnishing (optional)
- Whipped coconut cream, (optional), for serving (see notes)
- To make the crust:
- Pulse ingredients together in a food processor until a dough of sticky crumbles forms. Add a splash of water to help it come together.
- Press into a standard size pie plate .
- To make the filling:
- Add avocados to food processor and blend smooth.
- Add in remaining ingredients, to taste and blend again. (Add some zest for extra zing, if that’s your thing!)
- Pour over crust and set in the freezer for about 4 hours, until solid.
- Thaw on the counter to desired texture. (See notes)
- Garnish however you like, slice and serve immediately. Enjoy!
Fresh mint leaves can be found in the refrigerated produce section of most large grocery stores. I got mine at Sprouts. I haven’t tried mint extract, but it might work in a pinch. I would start with 1/8 tsp mint (not peppermint), and then add ONE drop very carefully, to taste.
Keep pie frozen. Thaw at room temp to desired consistency to serve (about 30-45 minutes, usually). Can be served slightly frozen for a pie that taste like a frozen mixed drink, or completely thawed for a cream pie taste, depending on the texture you like. I liked both!
To make the whipped coconut cream, I used 1 can of coconut milk, refrigerated overnight (the solid cream only), whipped with 1 Tbs maple syrup and 1 tsp vanilla. Place in a baggie to pipe on swirls.
