When You Dream of Avocado, Dream of Dessert | Effortless
Watch
1:50

All the best ideas start as a joke. During a recent avocado embargo, Chef Claudette Zepeda-Wilkins swore to her staff she’d put the luscious fruit on every dish, even desserts, once the avocado train started running again. True to her word, she created an ever-so-slightly green flan made extra creamy with ripe avocados. Then she took it up a notch and baked the custard in a bubble silicone mold, because every dessert should feel like a party. While your flan is in the oven, follow Wilkin’s lead and clean like a maniac before your guests arrive. Effortless flan and a (sort of) sparkling-clean home brought to you by our partners at Pacific Sales.
