This dessert is kind of crazy looking and I have to admit U.G. L. Y!

I mean how many people like bright green colour in their dessert?.... LOL BUT.......It fits this category.....

Fluffy avocado lime flavoured filling tops a crispy coconut almond macaroon crust and topped with a delish caramelized pear topping.

It really is delish~Low in Fat and High in Protein

The sugars can be substituted for a Paleo diet.

Step 1: Macaroon Crust

Macaroon:
2 egg whites

1/4 tsp cream of tartar powder

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup coarsely chopped almonds

Beat egg whites with tartar powder in a stand mixer with a whisk on high.

When the eggs start to thicken and become fluffy begin to slowly add the sugar.

Whisk to a stiff peak.

Slowly fold in the almonds and coconut.

Spread into a well greased false bottom pan or spring form pan.

Bake for 40min at 300F the crust should not be brown. Cool to the touch.

Refrigerate for 1 hr. only as the colour may darken, but it will not affect the flavour or freshness.
