Lime Avocado Torte 

This special occasion dairy-free gluten-free raw dessert is full of good fats from luscious avocado, coconut oil, and nuts, so a little goes a long way.  

Ingredients (serves 8)
Base
90g ground almonds
60g pistachios
3 tablespoons of coconut sugar
60g coconut oil
Topping
100g coconut oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup
75g brown rice syrup
2-3 limes, juiced
2 large ripe avocados 
Decoration
1 kiwi
desiccated coconut
additional pistachio nuts
lime zest
Choose organic where possible.
To Make
Base: Line an 8 inch cake tin with cling film.  In a food processor grind the pistachios.  Combine them with almonds in a bowl. Add in coconut sugar and melted coconut oil. Stir well (NOT in a food processor).  Press mixture evenly into the base of the tin.  Freeze to set for at least 30 minutes.
Topping:  in the bottom of your blender jug, place coconut oil, syrup, a little lime juice, then drop in the avocado flesh. Blend on high speed until smooth. Adjust lime and sweetener to taste. (Add lime a little at a time and then re-blend).
Remove dessert base from freezer and pour the avocado mix over, smoothing over with the back of a spoon.  Return to the freezer for at least 2 hours. If for longer, bring the torte to room temperature before serving.
Serve with sliced kiwi fruit, and a blend of chopped pistachio, desiccated coconut and lime zest.
