Do you remember my vegan chocolate banana pie? I only posted it last week so I’m sure you can remember that far back! Well I mentioned that at the same time I made an orange version of the pie for me. (because I’mnot a banana fan).
So here it is! You might think that the avocado is going to taste weird here but you can’t actually taste the avocado, it just makes a nice creamy base for the chocolate. Promise!
It’s very quick to make too, you just need to plan ahead a little so you have the base ready. You could even make several bases at once and keep tham in the freezer for whenever you feel like eating pie!
