Instructions


  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F (177 degress C).
  2. To remove the avocado skin:  Cut into the avocado lengthwise until you hit the pit.  Rotate the knife around the entire pit until you have two halves.  Carefully hit the pit with the knife until it punctures it.  Turn the knife to pop out the pit.  Push a spoon between the avocado and the skin and carve the avocado out of its skin.  Discard the skin.
  3. Chop the avocado into small chunks.  Add the chunks to a small bowl and mash with a fork.  Set aside.
  4. Slice the lime in half.  Hold one half over a small bowl and press into the flesh with a fork.  Repeat for the other half.  Set aside.
  5. To create the zest, gently grate the outside of the lime skin with a small-holed grater.  Set aside.
  6. Place the coconut oil for the filling in a small saucepan.  Heat on low heat until melted.  Set aside.
  7. Apply a thin layer of the melted coconut oil to a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom.  Line the bottom with parchment paper.  Set aside.
