Avocados are rich in healthy fats and other nutrients, plus they have a rich, creamy texture that adds a new dimension to many desserts and side dishes.
They are one of the best ways to create filling, satisfying meals and avoid hunger on the Candida diet. A delicious way to reap the benefits of this versatile fruit is by making it the star ingredient of a beautiful tart.
This simple Avocado Lime Tart is a cool, refreshing way to end a meal. It has just a little stevia for sweetness but has no added sugars. Just perfect for spring (or indeed any time of year!).
Making delicious desserts on the Candida diet is easy when you know how. I’ve had feedback from many readers who love this tart filling so much that they eat it by itself, out of a bowl.
If you want to make your own gluten-free tart crust (which I highly recommend!) check out these instructions for an almond-coconut tart crust.
- 1 Almond Coconut Tart Crust (recipe here)

- In a small bowl, add coconut milk, alcohol free vanilla, stevia powder and salt. Whisk until stevia and salt have dissolved. Set aside.
- In the bowl of a food processor, add mashed avocados, lime zest and juice and process until smooth. Add coconut milk mixture and process until smooth. With the food processor running, pour melted coconut oil into the bowl. Process until tart filling is thoroughly combined.
