Mexican Avocados: The Perfect Halloween Treat + Recipe Contest

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

I L-O-V-E avocados!

Avocados are great tasting and a good source of nutrients, including 20 essential vitamins and minerals. Plus they are available year-round so they are a staple of my family's diet. In fact, mashed avocado was Marlie's first solid food.

Avocado is really a unique food. It can be mashed, sliced, and baked into so many delicious recipes. The Avocados from Mexico team is hosting a Spookamole recipe contest to find the most creative dishes for Halloween parties! The green color is perfect. Avocado ice cream with a waffle cone hat can be a witch and guacamole can be goblin snot. Get the idea? Now go put on your chef hat and join the fun. Here is my recipe entry:

Mummy's Chocolate Avocado Pudding
2 small ripe Haas avocados
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup cocoa powder
2 TBSP melted coconut oil
1 TSP vanilla extract

Directions: Mash the avocados then puree in the blender with milk. Add remaining ingredients and blend until creamy with a glossy sheen. Chill in refrigerator before serving. Makes 4 servings of a healthy and yummy treat!

I got the idea for this recipe from a health food blog and made some modifications. It looks and tastes just like regular chocolate pudding, but even better! This is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser and everyone will be shocked when you tell them the secret ingredient is avocados.

I wrote this post while participating in a Spookamole blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Avocados from Mexico.
