Our summer of avocado lust continues and today we’re in the mood for dessert. Avocado desserts are just starting to get their due. The lusciously creamy green stuff makes tasty DIY popsicles (blend with coconut milk and freeze), and even pairs well with chocolate. At the James Beard House in New York City, we recently tried an exceptional avocado-shaped-and-flavored ice cream with a dark chocolate pit, made by chef Anthony Lamas of Seviche in Louisville.
To try the trend yourself, here are five avocado dessert recipes from innovative health bloggers.
