We're two sisters who are craft book publishers and found ourselves in the midst of an avocado grove. We bought this house where we planned to conduct our publishing business and in the deal got 4 acres of avocado trees thrown in. Now we're not only publishers but ranchers as well! This blog is all about avocados and anything else that strikes my fancy.

Movies and Pie Anyone?

A friend of mine clued me into the following movie - Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death.  He hasn't seen it and neither have I, but it certainly does have a curious title. I was thinking this would make a really fun evening - an avocado movie and a slice of avocado pie.  Bill Maher is in the movie, so it couldn't be too bad, right? If anyone actually does see it or has seen it, send me a review.
I'm finally including the recipe for avocado pie so your movie and pie evening will be complete. See below.

Here's a photo of the pie. I just whipped it up today and was it ever easy.

Here's the recipe:

1 large avocado (or 2 small ones)
1 oz. package cream cheese (softened)
1 14 oz. can sweetened evaporated milk
1/3 cup lemon juice
graham cracker crumb pie crust
whipped topping
sliced almonds, lightly toasted

1. Mash the avocado and add the cream cheese, milk, and lemon juice. Beat until smooth and creamy.
I used a hand mixer, but a blender would work also.
2. Pour the mixture into the pie crust and refrigerate for 1 hour or more.
3. When cold, add the whipped topping and sliced almonds.

This pie was absolutely delicious, sweet and tart at the same time and very refreshing. And so easy to make. I think you'll like it. I'm not so sure about the movie!


  1. Hello. I love your blog so far. And this sure is a nice, simple recipe.
    As for the movie...I'll look for it on Netflix. Pie and a movie would make a fun evening. :)

  2. I HAVE seen that movie!!! I am about to try a recipe for an avocado chocolate pudding (having recently gone vegan). I'll let you know how it goes.

  3. Thanks Helen. Glad you're enjoying the blog. I've actually ordered the movie from Netflix so you'll have to come to the pie and movie nite. I'll let you know when it arrives.

    Hi Danielle,
    Are you Arlene's Danielle? If so, glad you made it to my blog. If you're not Arlene's Danielle, welcome to the blog anyway.
    I can't believe you've seen the movie. What did you think of it? I'm dying to see it.
    Would love to hear how your pudding turns out. If it's good, can I share it?
