Last week I blogged about A Whole New Look At Avocados and my latest version of a chocolate milkshake flipped with an avocado. Well I mentioned something about using avocados in other sweet treats such as cupcakes and icing. Since I had so much fun with the milkshake here we go. . . .
Don’t they look beautiful!
Yes I substituted one avocado for the oil in the cake mix. (1 choc cake mix, 1 1/4 cup water, 1 egg and 1 mashed avocado) I also (I am still so excited) substituted criso/cream cheese in the icing for two pureed avocados!!
Isn’t that amazing – the icing looked like real icing, in its gorgeous natural green color! I had many people try them but of course did not tell them before they ate it and received great positive comments! I was very impressed with the turnout!
Trading out the saturated fat for healthy monounsaturated fat – whoohoo!
