Avocado-Vanilla Bean Dairy Free Pot de Creme

Avocado-Vanilla Bean Dairy Free Pot de Creme–an aphrodisiac experience

Delahna Flagg and I wanted to share a recipe from our new cookbook, Eat Cake Naked: aphrodisiac desserts to heat up your love life that would give a taste of what our concept of an aphrodisiac dessert is all about. We think this Avocado-Vanilla Bean Pot de Creme recipe is the perfect choice for showing you just what aphrodisiac desserts are all about. This recipe is unique, unusual and indulgent. As far as we’re concerned, it has everything a romantic dessert should offer: a voluptuous, velvety texture; subtle sweetness and a healthy dose of aphrodisiac ingredients. (It is, incidentally, both dairy and gluten free!)

The experience of aphrodisiacs

It is one of the most decadent recipes in the book. But it also offers the health benefits of raw avocado. Raw avocado is a great source of vitamin E, also known as “the sex vitamin.” And to layer up the aphrodisiac experience, we added vanilla. Vanilla is historically considered aphrodisiac. In this recipe, we’re using it for the seduction of its aroma. (In a scientific study, the scent of vanilla proved to be arousing to men.)

A note about avocados

As you probably already know, the flavor and color of avocados change quickly after they’ve been peeled so we recommend eating the pot de crème the day it’s made. The recipe makes 4 perfect little servings of sweet, creamy goodness as a dessert. But if you’re feeling truly indulgent, it also works well as 2, pure comfort, snack servings.

And if you find this recipe as outright sexy as we do, you can find out more about our cookbook at EatCakeNaked.com.

Cuisine: aphrodisiac
Keyword: Avocado
Dish Type: pudding
Cooking Style: Baking

Ingredient: avocado
Servings: 4 servings
Created by: Delahna Flagg
Ingredients
  • 1 ripe medium avocado
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large egg yolks at room temperature
Instructions
  1. Rinse avocado with hot water to prevent browning. Halve the fruit and scoop the flesh into a blender. Set aside.
  2. In a double boiler or metal mixing bowl, set on top of a pot of simmering water (make sure the water level is below the bottom of the bowl), combine the coconut cream, brown sugar and vanilla. Slowly, lovingly stir together with a wire whisk until the brown sugar is completely dissolved. As you stir, heat the mixture until it is too hot to touch but not hot enough to simmer.
  3. While continuing to stir, slowly add the egg yolks one at a time, whisking until thoroughly incorporated. Heat for 10 minutes, continuously whisking. Make sure the custard does not get hot enough to simmer. As it cooks, the mixture will thicken.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into the blender with the avocado. Purée until it creates a smooth, creamy pudding.
  5. Divide the pudding between 4 espresso cups or 2 ramekins, martini glasses or your favorite small serving bowls, glasses or cups.
  6. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours before serving. Serve topped with a dollop of your favorite non-dairy whipped topping. (We also recommend it with whipped cream if you’re into dairy!)
