I’m such a sucker for key lime pie, but often it’s so loaded with sugars that it’s not really something I can allow myself. This Keto Key Lime Jar Pie recipe however, uses avocado to lend that creaminess, and with avocado’s neutral taste, it works well as a blank canvas for the strong and tart lime flavor. It also adds great heart-healthy fats into dessert. Double the win!
If you want to make the presentation nicer for guests or just for the added tastes, you can top the treat with whipped heavy cream (plain or with added erythritol to make it sweet) and then top with some crumbles. You can also layer the dish 2 times for a pleasing texture throughout the meal. I love the crunchiness of the crust with the sweet and sour of the lime.
This recipe works well in the jars because its a bit looser than a regular pie would be, however you can place all the ingredients into a pie dish for serving. Because the dish has so much lime juice, the avocado won’t turn brown if you place the dish in the fridge, but its still best to eat it within a day or two of making.
