Cool Avocado Banana Dessert

People rarely think of avocado as a key ingredient in desserts, but it is a surprisingly versatile fruit, which is perfect for dessert because of its creamy and pliable texture.



Avocado doesn't have much taste, so you can play with flavours and the avocado won't overpower the seasoning because it is so mild.

I served this to a couple of girlfriends when they wanted something sweet and all I had in was bananas, avocado, a bit of rice milk left over, and thankfully some vanilla pods.

I am somewhat of a gym-a-holic, so I try to keep my desserts low in sugar and try to use natural ingredients where possible.

Whilst this dessert was initially created, and enjoyed by a group of twenty-somethings, my friend has an eight month old little girl, and she said this would be a perfect little snack because she's teething.

I think this dessert is great for all ages because it is dairy and sugar free, plus it's vegan-friendly, so even the most sensitive constititutions would be able to enjoy it. Plus the sweetness of the frozen bananas makes it absolutely delicious.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients
Half a Jamaican avocado
2 frozen bananas
Half a vanilla pod
Splash of Rice Milk

Required ingredients


Method
Carefully slice the skin off the bananas and slice into chunks.

Place the banana chunks into a food processor and blend. The banana doesn't need to be smooth because it will even out in the next few blends.



Scoop out the avocado flesh from the skin.

Add the avocado and scrape down the sides of the food processor.



Add the rice milk.

Scrape in the vanilla and combine until smooth.



It should be relatively smooth, but still quite thick in texture.



Using an ice cream scoop or tablespoon, scoop out balls of this cool dessert.



Garnish with poppy seeds for prettiness and texture.



This dessert is high in fibre, and will satisfy kids sweet tooth without piling on the calories. The same can be said for adults if you's like o enjoy this dessert yourself.
