Chocolate Banana Avocado Pie (Paleo)

Print

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before, but I LOVE chocolate! It’s just such a shame that so many desserts are made with refined sugar, animal products, and empty calories, so I decided to take it upon myself to start a new trend…vegan desserts that aren’t filled with “healthy” sugar (like agave or turbinado sugar, which is still added sugar) and aren’t made with white flour or filled to the brim with nuts! I’m not sure about you guys, but that just doesn’t sound healthy to me. The recipe I have for you today may just be one of my new favorite recipes! I had no idea that you could make what is essentially a cream pie out of completely clean ingredients. This pie is seriously good and honestly guilt-free. Check it out!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Every serving of avocado provides nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, including lutein, folate and potassium, which are good for your eyes, enhance cell repair, are needed during pregnancy and help control blood pressure, respectively. While avocados are high in fat, it’s the good kind of fat, called monounsaturated fats, which help lower bad cholesterol. Therefore, eat in moderation as they have a lot of calories per serving-with 1/5 of a medium avocado/1 oz is equal to 50 calories. Not sure what to do with any avocado leftover? It's a great addition to any salad or eat as is! All cacao products, from nibs to the cacao bean are said to aid in the lowering high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, liver, bladder and kidney disorders, asthma and/or diarrhea.
