Dessert Guacamole And 11 Other Surprisingly Tasty Sweet Avocado Recipes

Love guacamole? We're pretty sure you aren’t the only one! It's National Guacamole Day, and we are determined to celebrate the crap out of it. But we thought we'd mix things up a little for you. Most likely, you already know how to mash up ripe avocados with lime, salt, hot sauce and whatever else floats your boat, so we won't go into that. Instead, we're going to switch it up and throw you out of your usual avocado routine. We've scoured the Internet for the best sweet guacamole-type dips that will shock you with how good they are, plus some other mindblowingly delicious desserts. Are you ready? 

1. Sweet Guacamole Dip

Sweet Guacamole Dip

 It might sound weird, but cream cheese, guac and sugar with pie crust chips (or anything else, if you want -- vanilla wafers, sweet pita chips or even just regular tortilla chips would all be great here) taste just like cheesecake together. Swap out the sugar for a little sweetened condensed milk if you want to add extra creamy richness.

2. Chocolate Guacamole and Spicy Chips

Guacamole and Spicy Chips

 Love sweet and spicy combos? Go ahead and make this dip, complete with hot sauce-doused chips. If you don’t have any great hot sauce lying around, feel free to toss your favorite chips (tortilla or pita) in butter or oil and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and cayenne pepper. Warm them in the oven for extra goodness.

3. Sweet Dessert Guacamole a la Mexique

5. No-Churn Avocado Pistachio Ice Cream

 The best part of this recipe, besides the amazing pistachio flavors, is that the avocado adds an extra delightful creaminess to the mix, making the no-churn setup even more successful.

6. Avocado-Lime Ice Cream

 Looking for a non-dairy option? Try out this version that uses avocado, coconut milk and maple syrup for a healthier but just as tasty twist.

7. Chocolate Raspberry Truffles

 Creamy, rich and fruity, these truffles get their silkiness from that little bit of avocado you are blending in. Delicious and way healthier than anything store-bought.

8. Avocado Ricotta Olive Oil Cake

 The rich, nutty and bright flavors from the olive oil, ricotta and lemon zest are the perfect match for creamy avocado (which won’t taste that strong anyway).

9. Avocado Mint Fudge Bars

 You might not think avocado and fudge should be in the same sentence, but they are actually perfect for each other, as avocado lends a beautifully creamy richness to it.

10. Super-fudgy Vegan Chocolate Cake with Avocado Frosting
