Children love sweet treats, but a lot of treats are packed with sugar and unhealthy fats. Avocados are the prefect based for super healthy desserts and treats for kids, packed with healthy fats, their creamy rich texture makes them ideal to make ice cream. These recipes are also ideal to make popsicle for your kids too!

2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tsp vanilla extract

125 mins 3 Easy Chef Dom's Christmassy Avocado & Chocolate-Mint Mousse This is a rich desert that tastes more along the lines of dark chocolate than milk chocolate. Dom loves it but some children may need extra sweetener. Definitely a “special occasional” as Dom says because very rich. 10 mins 14 Easy Fruity avocado bliss balls 140 mins 25 Difficult Avocado Chocolate Truffles These truffles are not only incredibly tasty, they are made healthy with the addition of avocado and avocado oil! 85 mins 10 Difficult Avocado Chocolate Ganache Cake The chocolate ganache on this cake uses avocados and coconut milk as the delicious ingredients that give it its creaminess, however the whole cake is dairy free! The cake itself is super moist and decadent with the help of rich avocado oil! Avocados are simply amazing when whizzed up with melted chocolate, producing a thick, silky, creamy ganache.
