Avocado Frozen Yogurt Bars 01.jpg

These keto-friendly avocado frozen yogurt bars dipped in dark chocolate magic shell are chock full of healthy fats! In fact, the very short ingredients list incorporates five out of the top 10 listed healthiest fats on Healthline. They are: avocados (of course), full-fat Greek yogurt, dark chocolate, coconut (in both oil and desiccated forms), and almonds. To keep the bars healthy, I sweetened them with stevia.

I hope that you make some in the coming hot months and also hope they can bring in some of your votes as these deliciously fatty froyo bars have been entered into the Fat Challenge. Many thanks!

Step 1: Ingredients and Supplies

Yields 4 x 1/2 cup frozen yogurt bars

AVOCADO FROZEN YOGURT INGREDIENTS

2 ripe avocados

1 cup full-fat Greek yogurt

3/4 cup stevia (the kind that is cup-for-cup measure)
NOTE: Since every brand of stevia or sweetener can vary greatly in potency, just add to taste, however consider that treats tend to be less sweet when frozen.
ANOTHER NOTE: If you are not watching your sugar intake nor on keto, you may as well go all the way with calorie consumption by sweetening the bars using condensed milk. Again, sweeten to taste. The condensed milk will yield a creamier result similar to ice cream.

MAGIC SHELL INGREDIENTS

150 g dark chocolate, chopped

1/4 cup refined coconut oil (the kind that is solid at room temperature; also refined means no coconut taste!)

Chopped almonds

Desiccated coconut

SUPPLIES

Popsicle molds (each is a 1/2 cup cavity)

Large popsicle sticks

Wide, short glass that would easily fit the pops for dipping

That looks so delicious! Can't wait to try! If you don't mind, you should try a couple of my favorite recipes like almond butter bars, seaweed muffins, cheese and salsa cups, and yougurt berry cakes!

Thanks! Where can I find your recipes? Do you post on Instructables?
These are so cute! Think I'll have to try (when it finally gets warm). Thanks for stopping by my pie entry to comment.
Thank you!

Yep...I hope warm weather gets here soon!

Congrats on your tartlets, they look delicious!

Thank you! So glad you tried it!!

I love avocado toast. I would jump on trying green bean donuts. And I inhale seaweed, so I wanna try out that seaweed muffin you describe! Thanks for letting me know about it!

I don't know...frozen avocado bars?

That made me lol! It's a conversation I've had for years especially in my teens when friends were surprised I grew up on avocado milkshakes/smoothies, and the reaction I always got was "Ew. Weird!"...that is, until people tried it. Avocado wasn't used in a savory application in my culture. It's great as a dessert and I think North Americans are finally realizing this because I have been seeing the new brand "Cado" ice cream at all of my local grocery stores in New York.

Speaking of avocado desserts, I also did an avocado pie here: https://www.instructables.com/id/Avocado-Tropical-Pie/
Ok, it's hours later, and I was wrong. They're really tasty. I tried it a little different by rolling them into balls with a melon baller. I froze them and then dipped them in dark chocolate and sprinkled chopped pecans, walnuts, and macadamia nuts on them with a little pink salt.

Thanks, that's a great idea! Now I don't have to go buy popsicle molds or sticks. (so glad you decided to try these!!)

Oooh, so glad to hear you tried them! Sounds awesome done with a melon-baller. Bite-size is even more convenient. I will do that next time. Thanks for the tip!

Btw, I see you're from Barrie. Aurora is my hometown! :D
Ok, I'll stop being a baby about this. I was reluctant to try Vietnamese pastries like green bean donuts, and now I love them.
I'll give this a whirl and see how it goes.
Thanks for posting this instructable btw. Lovely family picture.

Green bean donuts?!? :O I would be so all over those!!!

Thanks for reminding me, I should update the 5-year old family picture. XD
I have tried both homemade and store bought ("Cado" brand) ice cream, and it is great!
Don't knock it until you try it ;-}. Avocado has a fairly neutral taste with a buttery texture. You would be surprised at how well it mixes with other ingredients to make an extra creamy sweet treat!

stevia is worse than people make it, although its not as Stevia has no calories, and it is 200 times sweeter than sugar in the same concentration. Other studies suggest stevia might have extra health benefits. ... But a few studies show that replacing sugar with artificial or low-calorie sweeteners may not ultimately lead to weight loss in real life. (livescience.com)
paperplateandplane (author)  Yolo Pigeon17 days ago
I must have some really cheap stevia because it is the kind that is measured cup-for-cup against sugar. Though the ratio definitely makes it easier for baking. I understand about the artificial sweeteners, I can't tolerate their taste much anymore. I'm glad there's stevia. I would like to venture into other natural sweeteners, but they can be so expensive!
