Do you have fussy eaters who turn their nose up at healthy foods? Well if you’re anything like me you’ll find a way, and this is my way of getting avocado into them – avocados are full of amazing good fats so I make sure it’s part of their diet.
These two desserts are completely delicious and my two boys devour them in seconds and ask for more. Little do they know…
Strawberry Citrus Ice Cream
1 ripe avocado
4 cups frozen organic (if possible!) strawberries (I chop these up before they go in the freezer to make it easier on the food processor)
1/2 cup plain organic yogurt
1/4 cup raw honey
4 drops Wild Orange essential oil*
4 drops Lime essential oil*
*you can purchase these food grade oils here.
Add all the ingredients to a high-speed blender or food processor and blend until all the frozen strawberries have broken down. Serve immediately.
This recipe not only has avocado but it’s rich in magnesium from the cacao too so it’s super healthy! Our bodies need the correct amount of magnesium in our diets for us to sleep properly, so we need a regular intake of magnesium. Also, cancer free populations have an extremely high magnesium intake of 2.5 – 3g which is 10 times more than most western countries. So here we go…
1/2 cup creamy coconut milk
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 raw cacao powder
2 tbsp raw honey
(add a dollop of hazelnut butter for a Ferrero Roche twist – so good!)
Using a food processor or high-speed blender, combine all ingredients until smooth. Put in refrigerator to chill before serving. I love to top them with some fresh raspberries!
