Avocado. It’s the incredible, edible… fruit? Yes, despite its creamy and somewhat savory flavor, avocado is actually a fruit. And a darn good one too.
Its chock full of healthy fats, fiber, potassium, and vitamin E. It’s also incredible versatile.
You’re probably very familiar with adding some avocado slices to your salad to beef it up a bit, or making some homemade guacamole to go with your free-range chicken and vegetables, but have you ever thought about avocado as a dessert? Yes, a dessert!

(Now don’t be nervous. Most of the time you can’t even taste the avocado, but occasionally, if it’s super ripe, you may taste a hint, but it’s still amazing. Trust me on this one! I had the mousse last night for dessert!)
Blend avocado (minus the pit and the skin) in a food processor until smooth and creamy. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until thoroughly mixed. You may have to scrape the sides of the food processor occasionally. At this point, you can further flavor or sweeten if desired. Top with coconut flakes and enjoy immediately or refrigerate immediately.
So rich and so good!
Blend all ingredients thoroughly in a blender until smooth. Add some crushed ice for a thicker shake, and add more water for a thinner shake. Enjoy immediately.
