Avocado can be used to replace butter in baking. It can also be used in smoothies or sweet treats to create a smooth and creamy texture without overpowering the dish.  I’ve used avocado to make chocolate mousse before and decided to add a bit more liquid, pour into ice lolly mold and freeze it. The result? Rich and creamy healthy fudgesicles that can pass for chocolate ice cream. Don’t let the avocado scare you, the cocoa powder turns it a chocolatey brown so it’s completely hidden and you can’t taste it at all.

These healthy fudgesicles use medjool dates for added sweetness; but if you can’t get medjool dates you can use regular dried pitted dates. Just remember to soak them in warm water for 5 minutes to soften them so the blend easier and smoother.

    Hi Zissy seems the quantity and steps for the almond milk have been omitted?
