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 pie 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!

This chocolate avocado pie recipe serves one person and can easily be doubled if you'd like to make a second.

It's a healthy, indulgent, gluten-free dessert and you can make it vegan by swapping maple syrup for the honey.

    Joanie, this looks so yummy! I love that the ingredients are simple and natural. I think this will be the perfect sweet treat to add to my recipe list. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I have wanted to try this for so long. It sounds amazing and it has so many wonderful health benefits. I love the concept of cooking for smaller portions too.

    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.
