This frozen treat is a wholesome twist on a dessert that makes a delicious choice for an after-school snack! It is sweetened with bananas and agave and gets its luscious, creamy consistency from delicious, good-for-you California Avocados. Each serving provides an excellent source (20% of Daily Value) of dietary fiber and a good source (10%-19% of Daily Value) of potassium, vitamin C and folate.

Ingredients

Serves: 4
  ripe, Fresh California Avocado, peeled, seeded and cut into ¾-in. dice and frozen
1 1/2    ripe bananas, peeled, cut into ½-in. slices and frozen
Tbsp.  agave nectar
Tbsp.  cocoa powder
Tbsp.  virgin coconut oil
tsp.  lemon juice
tsp.  vanilla extract
  Pinch salt

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados

Instructions

  1. Remove the avocado and banana from the freezer and thaw slightly, about 20 minutes.
  2. Place the avocado, banana, agave nectar, cocoa powder, coconut oil, lemon juice, vanilla extract and salt in a blender and process for 60 seconds. Stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl. Continue to process until smooth and creamy; the mixture should resemble soft serve ice cream.
  3. Scoop the frosty into bowls and garnish with optional toppings.

Serving Suggestion: Best consumed right away or leftovers can be frozen. Optional toppings can include shredded, unsweetened coconut, fresh berries, sliced bananas or chopped nuts.

Beverage Pairing: Enjoy with a chilled glass of non-fat or low-fat milk.

* Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
