Avocados are an amazing food to incorporate into breakfast, lunch and dinner, but what about dessert? Due to their creamy texture, they make an excellent addition to many sweet recipes that maintain the avocado’s creaminess but don’t necessarily taste like it. You can make anything from doughnuts to squares that taste absolutely incredible and carry more nutrients than a regular, avocado-less dessert. While these aren’t your typical desserts, they still pair nicely with a warm cup of coffee or tea and are best served to unsuspecting avocado dessert victims. Don’t tell them there’s avo in the dessert until they’re done singing your praises!
