Fuss-Free Fridays: You Say Guacamole, I say Dessert!


Some of you might find the concept of eating avocado outside the constricts of a vegetable salad or a Mexican dip bizarre. On the contrary, when I moved to North America in the late ’90s, I had a mental gag when I discovered that my beloved avocado was made into anything other than a dessert — fresh spooned out of the skin, as an ice cream or a filling shake. Worse, it was sometimes being touted as something really fattening. Yikes.

This is my all-time favorite way of eating avocados: sprinkled with sugar and powdered milk (preferably Nido) and straight into my mouth. Creamy, dreamy dessert!

I'll eat you without dieter's remorse.

Have you tried this before? What other food do you eat differently than others do?

On a sweet avocado related note, I was more than thrilled to learn that avocado can be used as the chocolate fudge cake icing in a raw diet. It does taste so rich and good as a ganache!

Sorry Fuss-Free Friday was late. I have to admit that the day just crept up on me this afternoon. If you have other fuss-free recipes to share, please leave the link in the comments section. Thanks and enjoy your weekend!

    Very strange I must say, but it also seemed strange when I saw so many avocado-based sweet recipes – including ice cream – on so many blogs. We really didn’t eat avocados that often until we found them on my husband’s diet to lower his cholesterol. I guess it is time for me to try them sweet!

      It was strange for me to try the other way. For years I refused to taste guacamole. Haha! I didn’t know it lowers cholesterol, hah, that should be good for my parents.

    Well, this dessert reminded me of my late father who used to mash up avocados and add cream and sugar and he would sit with me and let me taste his funny green dessert and actually my mother didnt like it, but I loved it so whenever he made it we 2 would sit at the table and just slurp our puddings like it was the coolest thing to do… funny eh!
