    Your favorite (tried and tested!) dessert recipe?

    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...

    No, you can't taste the avocado at all. It tastes like maybe it has a touch of some exotic liqueur, even though it doesn't. It's very rich and creamy!

    Avocado tastes like soap. Although I do eat avocados now. And still remember the taste of soap from my childhood when I was too tempted to taste a strawberry flavored piece of soap. Actually the taste of soap was way different, but it does not change the feeling about the taste of avocado - like soap.

    Sliced bananas covered in melted dark chocolate and a little cream topped with toasted coconut flakes. Chocolate dipped strawberries.

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