Guilt-Free Desserts… with Avocados!

10 Dec

When you hear the word “Avocado”, you might think dishes such as guacamole or salads… but have you tried them as desserts?  After research on paleo desserts, I’ve come across a few interesting avocado desserts recipes.   Wait a minute… aren’t avocados full of FAT?!  Yes, but they are actually full of the good fat, monounsaturated fat, which actually lowers cholesterol, hence the guilt-free-ness of these desserts!  Here are three yummy and paleo desserts made with Avocados:

TGIPaleo’s Avocado Brownies

Can you believe it! You can make brownies with avocados!  This paleo recipe by TGIPaleo calls for avocados, honey, coconut flour, and cocoa powder.

Life As A Plate’s Bananacado Fudge Cupcakes

Similarly to the brownie recipe, you can also make these fudge cupcakes from Life As A Plate!  These fudge cupcakes are made with bananas, avocado, and surprisingly, no flour!

Paleo Diet Lifestyle’s Chocolate Pudding

Now, this was the first recipe that made me realize I really underestimated the abilities of avocados.  The thing I really love about this recipe is that… it is also ridiculously easy and simple!  Just blend the ingredients together, sit down, and enjoy your delicious dessert!

So next time you get tired of not having any dessert because you are being strict paleo, you can maybe try out one of these avocado recipes and have a guilt-free and delicious fun time!

    I love making avocado dessert, but my husband insist that I do not tell him that he is eating chocolate avocado, the thought grosses him out

      Hahaha! That is too funny! I agree the idea seems a little out there, maybe I should keep that in mind when I make it for guests… and then tell them afterwards! :)

    That does look crazy yummy. I’ve put guacamole in a starter before, it was nearly like jelly but a slightly different consistency. I’m going to try and find the exact recipe for my blog ^_^ x
