Vegan Dessert Recipes: Zesty Avocado Pudding with Apple Compote

April 18, 2017
A bit sour, a bit spicy, creamy, and rich, this avo mousse is one of my favorite ways to use the fruit. It's good on its own, but even better with a bit of stewed apple to break up the monotony of avocado. When strewn with pomegranate seeds, this slightly sweet dish is brought to the next level. It's beautiful for breakfast or dessert (or both)! And it will surely shock your friends when you tell them it's made with no dairy and mostly whole-foods ingredients. And let's not forget that avocado boasts some serious health benefits. This excellent source of healthy fat is rich in vitamin K, folate, potassium, and vitamin C. Combine it pomegranate seeds and fiber-rich apples, and you've got a meal bursting with antioxidants.
