Avocados will make you rich (with nutrients)

AVOCADO IN YOUR DAILY LIFE

At Avocado Desserts, we take the desserts you love and make them love you back by using the natural health promoting nutrients from avocados! The inherent smoothness and sweetness of avocado are the perfect substitutes to make peace with your favourite desserts. With a dose of hearty fats and a touch of slow release sweeteners, we suppress the feeling of drowsiness after consuming any of our desserts. 

Actually, thanks to its composition, avocados have been shown to keep you full and feel satisfied longer (Megan Ware, 2016). Our avocado tiramisu is the ideal sweet to quench your appetite during the day or after a meal while satisfying your sweet tooth.

 Our award winning desserts are Montreal local and kitchen crafted!

AVOCADO NUTRIENTS

Avocado is the fruit with the highest nutrient content as it is rich in potassium, vitamin A, D, C, E, K, B vitamins, soluble and insoluble fibre, minerals, mono and polyunsaturated fats and a source of protein (Megan Ware, 2016). These healthy fats transport fat-soluble vitamins: A, D, E, K which are essential for good health. Avocados give you both the nutrients as well as the mechanism to store them... no spoonful is gone to waste! 

THE NUTRITION BEHIND IT

In our desserts, we use ingredients that will make you feel better for longer!

Our low glycemic sweeteners such as honey, agave, coconut sugar, and chicory root are higher quality sweeteners; ones that metabolise slower and do not give you a sugar rush.

Unsaturated fats are also used to slow down the breakdown of carbohydrates into glucose, which keep your blood glucose level stable.

Additionally, avocados have shown to participate in lowering cholesterol. By consuming one avocado a day, results from studies have shown a 22% decrease in low-density cholesterol, the bad cholesterol, and an 11% increase of high-density lipids cholesterol, the good kind (Mercola, 2017). While low-density lipids build up in the arteries causing health issues, high-density cholesterol aids the release of the low-density from your blood (heart.org, 2017).

 NOTE

** One of my favourite research was studying the effect of adding half an avocado to burgers. Results concluded that adding one-half of an avocado to your hamburger had significant impacts on the inhibition of the production of an inflammatory compound (interleukin) compared to eating the same burger without the avocado (Mercola, 2017). How exciting is it that avocado can even be added to a hamburger not only to make it tastier, but also healthier?

 

I finally made peace with desserts.
