I made this avocado mint cream bars, which were extremely easy to put together. I have found a few pointers that may help you with the recipe.

  1. Depending on the dates you use, you may need to soak them. My dates where quite dry so I just added 2 tbsp to the crust ingredients when pulsing in my food processor. That help the crust ingredients come together. You don’t necessarily have to do this but because my dates where dried I had to.
  2. If using bananas keep the bars in the freezer. Just thaw them out about 20-30 minutes before serving.

There is not much I can say about these avocado mint cream bars. I truly love avocados and this is the perfect dessert for me. Even if you don’t like avocados I think you will love it. My four year old couldn’t get enough.

Enjoy!
