Avocado Desserts

You may have seen avocado desserts before but if not, you’re in for a wonderful surprise. You see, the nutrient rich avocado is making its way into the dessert scene and with good reason. When avocados are puréed, they become creamy and take on an a thick pudding-like consistency. The avocado replaces butter and oil in most dessert recipes and when avocados are mixed with cocoa powder and a sweetener, they transform into an exquisite mousse-like chocolate pudding.

How To Make A Chocolate Avocado Dessert

For this simple Chocolate Avocado Tart recipe, I begin by puréeing a whole avocado in a food processor or blender. To the avocado, I add a little bit of cocoa powder, a touch of honey, a pinch of salt and a small amount of melted chocolate and vanilla. The addition of melted chocolate makes the taste of the avocado almost undetectable.

After the ingredients are blended together, pour the velvety smooth chocolate mousse into the simple crust which is made only from ground walnuts and dates. Press the crumbs into the bottom of a dessert glass, bowl or mini tart pan and top with the chocolate avocado mousse. The crust doesn’t even need to bake!

    1. It’s a great “healthier” combination, Lauren. The avocado, when pureed becomes almost pudding-like. The addition of melted chocolate makes the hard to taste the flavor of the avocado. Hope you try it, if you do please let me know what you think.


  3. What a fabulous guilt-free recipe! That cute little chocolate avocado tart is calling out to me. I think I need to run to the market and pick up the ingredients to make this delicious recipe. It’s perfect for Valentine’s Day!
