When you think about the primary ingredient in super-creamy desserts, your mind probably goes straight to dairy. But what if I told you your favorite green fruit is the key to making a mouthwatering treat the plant-based way?
Using avocados in desserts isn’t anything new. It’s been a vegan cooking staple for years and is often used in lieu of butter when baking. It’s so much more than a healthy ingredient swap, though. In many recipes, its natural creaminess is what takes desserts to the next level, whether you’re making a chocolate silk pie, key lime bars, or ice cream.
If you want to make a healthier version of some of your favorite sweet dishes without sacrificing taste or texture, these avocado desserts truly give you the best of both worlds.
