    Your favorite (tried and tested!) dessert recipe?

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    I am determined to start making our own Paleo desserts when we want to indulge, rather than end up buying stuff from outside.

    Whats your favorite recipe that you have used, and people (non-Paleo especially!) have loved the outcome?

    Thanks!

    @Goldie - can you taste the avocado in this? My hubby doesn't like the taste and texture of avocados, even though I don't think they actually "taste" like anything, but I would love to be able to make a sweet treat without using SAD ingredients...

    Mixed berries (nuke them to warm them and make them a bit syrupy) with coconut flakes and cream

    I make this for my family without the maple syrup, but I add a banana or 2 instead.
    They love it, and it doesn't taste like avocado.
