Avocados are the secret to this creamy and delicious lime pie
Most people use avocados in savory dishes, but don't overlook using this fruit in desserts too.

Avocados won't add a lot of flavor, but they will enhance a smooth and creamy texture.  You can add them to creamy desserts like cheese cake, puddings and cream pies.

I'm sharing with you a recipe for avocado lime pie.  You'll love it.  It's delicious.
