Avocados, who love avocado?
I am an avocado fan and try always to have some in my fridge for any occasion. Either topping on a sandwich, in salads or baked, avocado is a healthy and earthy-flavour fruit always to enjoy. However, for today I wanted a more unique and fancier avocado taste and look. So Avocado dessert came to my mind as an option and a new experience.
Why avocado dessert?
Well, because it is something new for me and I was desperate to try it. I got some doubts either to make it or not, but let my threats and dared to try. It appeared to be a lingering dessert with eye-catching colour, some healthy ingredients, and a fabulous taste. I really recommend to you this delicious and straightforward avocado dessert.

Even though it may seem odd – avocado as a dessert – you will be nicely surprised how tasty it can turn to be.

How do you eat avocado for dessert?
Who may think ever that avocado would be that good at dessert? Neither me.
Avocado is excellent and tasty in desserts. You have to try some to get convinced. Some more avocado dessert recipes may be ice-cream avocado, avocado pies, avocado chocolate parfait, avocado brownies, avocado muffins and other desserts.
Avocado is known for their ‘buttery texture’ and a mild flavour; this is why they are remarkably adaptable fruits in many dessert recipes. Many avocado recipes require no-baking techniques, and this is why they are quick to assemble and fast to eat.

Low-fat cookies (Graham crackers can be an option)
3 tbsp unsalted butter (soften not melted)
¼ tsp cinnamon
2 ripe avocados if you are making the dessert for two persons

How to make avocado dessert mousse?
Take a food processor or hand blender and start making the cookie base. Blend cookies, butter, and cinnamon powder until crumbly. Set aside the cookie mixture.
Now blend the avocado layer. Combine two peeled avocados, condensed milk, cream cheese, and vanilla seeds or extract. Blend until smooth and creamy. Blend about 3-5 minutes until the texture looks soft like a mousse. I advise you to use the ripest avocados so to avoid hard and unripe ones.
In a small bowl mix well yoghurt with Stevia. Set aside.
Take your nice-looking glasses and start layering the avocado mousse. Layer first the cookie crust, add the avocado and yoghurt mixture—top some cookie crumbs with lime zest.
Serve it as it is or chill it for some hours. Simple enjoy!
