Serves: 4-5
Time: 20 minutes
Recipe by: Monicia Horne


X2 avocados, cubed
100g ground almonds
1 cup flour
200g castor sugar
Juice and zest of 2 lemons
3 eggs, beaten
½ cup Clover Classic dairy snack, vanilla flavour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tbsp poppyseeds

For the glaze
1 cup Clover Classic dairy snack, vanilla flavour
300g icing sugar
Squeeze of lemon
Lemon peel for garnish
Poppy seeds for garnish


Preheat the oven to 180C.
Place the avo, ground almonds and sugar into a blender and blend until you have a thick green paste.
Transfer to a bowl and add in the lemon juice and zest. Add eggs one at a time, stirring in between and stir in the Clover Classic dairy snack. Stir through the flour, baking powder, bicarb and poppy seeds. Pour the batter into a greased and lined loaf tin and bake for 35-40 minutes until baked through and a skewer comes out clean.

Prepare the glaze by whisking the glaze ingredients together. Once the loaf has cooled, drizzle over and garnish with lemon peel and poppy seeds.

Chefs Tip: The use of lemon and vanilla counterbalances the flavours – you won’t taste the avo!
