One of my favorite desserts, this is something you must try.  (I know I know I’ve started quite a few posts this way but I have many fond memories pertaining to food when I lived in the Philippines–did I mention I was a very fat child?).  Growing up on my grandparents farm we had several avocado trees.  My grandmother used to mash the ripened avocados with sweetened condensed milk, chill it, and serve it as a dessert.  When I had just moved to the States I tried guacamole and thought it was the most vile thing you could do to an avocado.  I have since developed a liking for it especially atop delicious freshly made soft tacos.  Back to my grandma’s dessert.  She left her mashed avocado quite chunky in texture which I did not like as much as the creamy green stuff that separated from the pieces.  So I’ve decided to put everything in the blender to create this new version of her dessert.

Sweet Avocado Cream Recipe


  • 1/2 of a medium sized avocado
  • 3/4 c. whole milk or 2% (from Organic Valley)
  • 1 T. sugar (adjust to taste)
  • 1 t. ground flax seeds
  • 3 pieces of ice cube

Blend everything until smooth.  I decided to add the flax seeds because it’s good for you and I think the nutty taste complements the avocado cream nicely.
