I absolutely positively adore this recipe. I love it, I want it, I have to have it right NOW. The leftovers sitting in my fridge are calling my name right now. When I was deciding which dessert recipe to bring to my family BBQ, I immediately decided this one as soon as I took the first bite.

I should probably throw it in the trash so I stop staring at the fridge and cutting off tiny slices…every 10 minutes. This recipe is Paleo friendly, vegan and filled with nutritious ingredients (my favorite combo). Avocados add a great creamy mousse-like texture to desserts. if you haven’t tried making avocado pudding or adding avocado to your smoothies, I highly suggest it.
