Even though we all eat avocados in salads, guacamole, sandwiches and other savory recipes, we aren’t very accustomed to seeing this ingredient in desserts. The truth is that the avocado is a fruit; it’s eaten in many countries as ice cream or served alone with honey and cottage cheese. It’s also used in juices and it’s a great addition to smoothies, making them extra creamy. Fans of raw food incorporate avocados in all kinds of preparations, including mousses, pies and puddings such as this one. The combination with cocoa or chocolate is perfect, making this dessert creamy and full-bodied. MORE + LESS -
