It’s no secret that avocados are a staple in every meal. They’re chock-full of healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals, and they have a way of upping the ante on some of our dishes (avocado toast, anyone?). But other than pairing it with gluten-free ciabatta or huevos rancheros, avocado is also sneaking its way into desserts.

Ice cream, muffins, truffles…here are some of our favorite ways to add mother nature’s butter into our desserts.
