Secretly Healthy Avocado Desserts

I know what you might be thinking.

There goes another millennial with her crazy avocado obsession, ruining dessert by putting avocado in everything.

But the concept of sweet avocado desserts is actually not a millennial invention at all! Populations around the world have been using the superfood fruit to make Avocado Smoothies, milkshakes, puddings, fruit salads, and even ice cream for years.

It just took us a while to catch on!

High in healthy fats (over 75% of the fat in avocado is the heart-healthy unsaturated kind) and with a mild flavor, the creamy fruit is the perfect base for chocolate recipes like this rich chocolate avocado pie.

Also, just be glad I didn’t make a recipe for avocado toast chocolate bars; because yes, such a thing is a real product you can buy. And yes, it has actual pieces of avocado toast smashed into the chocolate bar.

I can’t even.

(Although, to be fair, I’m intrigued…)

So the first thing you all probably want to know is Does this pie taste like avocado?

Thankfully, the answer is NO.

Guacamole is great and all, but I don’t want it in my dessert.

If you’re skeptical because you’ve tried a dessert in the past that combined chocolate and avocado and did have an unfortunate taste?

Trust me, I’ve been there too.

In this deliciously healthy dessert recipe, I’ve used two different types of chocolate to give the pie a chocolatey brownie-like flavor and completely mask the avocado so that you can enjoy all the health benefits and the silky-smooth texture without being able to tell the secret ingredient is even in there!

Feel free to use your favorite store-bought or homemade crust for this chocolate pie, or keep it crustless and serve in ramekins.

Here is the crust recipe I used: 1 1/2 cups nuts of choice, 1 cup dates or dried fruit, 1/8 tsp salt, 2 tbsp dutch cocoa or 3 tbsp regular unsweetened cocoa powder.

Combine all crust ingredients in a food processor until fine crumbles form, then press into a lined 8-or-9-inch springform pan.

      Weight, so what it would weigh on a food scale once the pit and peel are removed. It’s about 3 avocados.

  1. Jen says

    What sweetener and chocolate chips were used to determine the nutrition facts? Curious to know what the carb load would be if using stevia (or similar) and no sugar added chocolate chips (keto version)….

  2. Home Plix says

    This chocolate avocado recipe is really amazing. It’s also so tasty and delicious. I just love it and try to do this. Thanks for sharing such an amazing post.

  3. Michele says

    How do you think it will turn out if I use the Lily’s dark chocolate stevia sweetened chocolate chips instead of regular ones?
    Thank you SO much for all of your amazing recipes!

    • Jason Sanford says

      Those normally work just fine in recipes that call for regular chocolate chips. I don’t see why they wouldn’t work here, but be sure to report back for the rest of us if you try!

  4. profbg60 says

    Thank you for another FABUlous recipe, Katie. I made the crust with walnuts and dates which paired well with the filling. Totally amazing!

    • Jason Sanford says

      Sorry we have not tried so can’t say how it would taste or what the texture would be. If you experiment, be sure to report back!

  5. Rosie Gagnon says

    Made this crustless for Thanksgiving, sooo good! Uses Lily’s sugar free chocolate chips, erythritol with a splash of liquid sucralose and made it keto. My family didn’t even notice. Thank you! New fav recipe and so easy! The chips melted in like 2 minutes in the microwave. I also added a splash of whipping cream.

    • Jason Sanford says

      Hi, it means use your favorite! 🙂 So regular sugar, coconut sugar, maple syrup, honey, erythritol, or whatever you normally use to sweeten things if given a choice.

  6. Brittany says

    Added like double the chocolate, 1 tbs melted butter and a little sugar free cool whip mixed in. Always yummy with cool whip on top and sliced strawberries.

  7. Kathy L says

    Soooo good!! I used coco powder, meted sugar free chocolate squares ( Hershey’s and See’s sugar-free chocolate bar) and 1 1/2 tablespoons of agave syrup to sweeten. I also chopped sugar-free coconut candy bars and sprinkled on top (because I love coconut!). Now I have a favorite recipe to avocados that we have growing!

  8. Constance says

    This was so creamy and rich in flavor! I made the crust with pecans. I used 4oz of dark chocolate and 4oz of semi-sweet chocolate. For the sweetener, I used brown sugar. I was worried that the brown sugar would be gritty but I didn’t notice it at all. I used large avocados and hence 1.5 large avocados was enough for the recipe. Your recipes never disappoint. 🙂

  9. Mandy says

    This says vegan, but I’m curious about the chocolate chips. Don’t they have a milk product in them? If so did you use a vegan chocolate chip product?

  10. Sarah says

    Hello- can cacao powder be used instead of cocoa? Trying to avoid going to the store if possible! Thank you! Can’t wait to try!

    • Jason Sanford says

      Sure, but for best taste you should still use the dutch if you can – or the melted chocolate instead of dutch! For the regular cocoa powder, it’s fine to sub cacao powder.

        Hi yes! The crust is written out in the post (right under where it says “More Crazy Ingredient Recipes”)

  11. Suzie says

    Hi, i dont have a springform pan so put this in a normal one. Will it be ok to serve ? Or can i bake this cake as it is to make it firmer? Thanks !

  12. Coco says

    Urgent! How long does it take to set? I am having a timed competition with friends over a face call and I wanted to make sure I could make it in time, approx 30 min. Love the recipe by the way, I’m super excited to try it out!

  13. Lisa says

    Tricked my daughter into eating some. She loved it! Couldn’t wait to have another slice. She couldn’t believe it had avocado in it.

  14. Mojoblogs says

    This is really interesting. Great way to make the children eat avocados. Thank you for this! I can’t wait to try it. 🙂

  15. Cinead says

    Blimey I so wish the measurements would be in grams for us rest-of-the-worlders out there… Good looking recipe nonetheless.

  16. Darlene K Lubinus says

    Found some forgotten avocados in the fridge and made this up. What a GREAT RECIPE! I have made pudding before but not pie. This was a fabulous add to my recipe stash. I am thinking of trying it with mint choco chips or extract next time. (I too am curious about freezing)

  17. Amy says

    Can you use frozen diced avocado? Defrost first? Anyone try it yet? I have a surplus that I use in smoothies and I’m looking for other ways to use it!
    PS-I love CCK and have never been disappointed by a sweet or savory recipe I have tried. Keep ’em coming please~

  18. Luckyduck says

    WoW, is this ever good!! So creamy, chocolatey and rich! Thanks for a fantastic recipe using avocado! Definitely a keeper!

  19. Hanna says

    Delicious! FYI: adding melted chocolate to cold avocados 🥑 equals a very stiff batter! Like a thick mud pie! On a good note, though, my avocados were ripe days before I needed to make my pie, so I stuck them in the freezer whole then put them in the fridge the night before to thaw (or run them under warm water and set on the counter for an hour, as I saw on They turned out great and were mushy enough to mix into the batter by hand, as I needed to do with my thick sticky batter! 😆 So, next time I will make sure they are room temperature! I added the batter to a keto almond flour pie crust. Delish!

  20. Josie says

    Made this tonight. There was some user here. I also had to add some oat milk as the food processor would not blend it otherwise but it still turned out great. Used a graham cracker crust. My 10 yo and her friend both approved and my kiddo is very very picky. Will definitely make again!

  21. Jill says

    This is an amazing recipe and so delicious. Great for low carb and no sugar diet. I will be making this again. I recommend using a mixer not a blender!!

  22. Patty says

    Where I live we do not have “regular” chocolate chips, but rather white chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, and dark cholocate chips. For the recipes where only chocolate chips are mentioned, should I use milk or dark chocolate (or what’s the cocoa percentage roughly)?

  23. Colleen Haig says

    Please tell me where the crust recipe is. I’d like to try this recipe but not without the crust. Thanks

  24. Chandra says

    Mine came out solid like a fudge pie. I’m wanting to make it lighter, sort of fluffier? Any suggestions while still keeping the sugar down?

  25. Jodi says

    5 stars
    delicious pie, I’ve made it several times and always get compliments on it. You really can’t detect an avocado taste in this pie, it’s so creamy and rich in the chocolate flavor but with the nutritional benefits of the avocado!
