The excessively cheesy name is because I literally dreamed up this recipe, and I’m not even crazy about avocado! Spiced similarly to pumpkin pie, it would be good for a holiday dessert.

The crust is from Jinjee and Storm Talifero’s Raw Apple Pie recipe in The Complete Book of Raw Food (which is another truly delicious pie). I’m not crazy about it, but I haven’t come up with a better one yet. Use whatever pie crust is your favorite and it should work fine.

This looks really good. It seems like it would be more like graham cracker crust if you added half pecans and cinnamon to the crust. This is such an unusual combo! Wow!

The crust recipe is from another source, which I've now credited, so I just copied that directly. I usually soak the dates because they blend a bit easier that way, but it isn't truly necessary for either the filling or the crust. I use sayer dates because they're super cheap around here - they're similar in size to medjool dates, and I use them in recipes that call for them.

Sounds yummy! So there are 7 pitted dates total, but soak only 4 of them and the other 3 don't soak? What type of dates did you use? Thanks :)
