If you like to serve a fancy dessert when you have visitors, this is the perfect cake for you.
Your guests will never guess that it’s good for you and they won’t know the secret ingredient unless you tell them- avocado!
Avocado is a superfood rich in healthy fats, fibre, potassium (more than twice that of a banana!), vitamin E, B vitamins and folic acid.
It’s easy to mash or puree without needing to be cooked.
Any unused avocado can easily be used as a spread on sandwiches or crackers so it’s great to include as a regular staple in your weekly shopping.
This is a really decadent dessert so the serving size has been kept small, although with such nutritious and filling ingredients, a small slice will be enough to satisfy you. Eat slowly and enjoy every mouthful!
Delicious served with a dollop of natural Greek yoghurt.
