We bet you’ll agree that these avocado desserts are the bomb.
The internet is buzzing about the possible benefits of eating ground avocado seeds. We’re not so sure about that, but we love a mean avocado dessert. You won’t believe the creamy goodness that results when you add fat-and-fabulous avocado to your fave sweets. Bonus: all of these recipes are vegan and naturally sweetened.
1. Avocado Mint Ice Cream
Avocado and coconut milk give this genius creation a rich ice cream texture. Avocado is rich in fibre, protein, and healthy fats, so you can feel good about eating spoonful after spoonful.
2. Fragrant Chocolate Avocado Tea Truffles
Chocolate and tea are the ultimate superfood friends. Here, dark chocolate and Earl Grey tea come together to form fudgy, no-bake energy bites. Throw in some avocado and pistachio, and you have an addictive snack.
3. Hidden Greens Chocolate Avocado Smoothie
Nothing beats a chocolate milkshake. Except maybe a chocolate milkshake that’s sneakily healthy. Don’t mind the spinach and avocado in this shake; all you’ll taste is sweet, chocolaty bliss.
4. Raspberry Avocado Mousse
This simple treat is luxuriously light and refreshing. The mix of cashews and avocado means the mousse is super rich, while chia seeds and cashews provide some sneaky protein.
5. Choco Chip Mint Smoothie
Ah, the classic flavour combo. If you’re not quite ready for ice cream season, this smoothie is here for you. Dates add a touch of sweetness, and avocado ensures that fresh green colour.
6. Tropical Avocado Tart with Coconut Crust
Hello, gorgeous. This make-ahead dessert is a showstopper. The citrusy filling is balanced by a flaky coconut crust, and it’s all topped with your favourite tropical fruit.
7. Key Lime Avocado Cupcakes
This is the pinnacle of avocado desserts, with avocado in both the cupcake and the frosting. These cupcakes do take a bit of work—you’ll have to hunt down vitamin C powder at a health food store—but they’re so worth it. Think key lime pie mixed with a vanilla cupcake.
