Green, earthy, and buttery-rich, avocados are one hell of a fruit. Yup, it's a fruit,one amazing multitasker at that, working its magic beautifully in both savory and sweet applications. Filipinos are especially familiar with its sweet side given our love for the classic home-style meal-ender that is avocados with milk and sugar, but, especially as it's avocado season, it's well worth exploring other ways the so-called "butter fruit" can be used as a dessert. These four recently introduced confections demonstrate just what we mean.

Make the most of the fruit's season with these recently introduced avocado desserts:

You've had banana pudding, but what happens when you switch out the bananas for earthy, buttery ol' avocados? An even creamier, dreamier treat with the butter fruit's signature earthy tinge. For the month of August, Old Boy Bakery is making their special Avocado Pudding (P220/eight-ounce tub) with layers of avocados whipped with cream cheese and lime, more diced avocados tossed in condensed milk, toasted graham crackers, and vanilla whipped cream. As rich as everything comes together, the brightness of the cream cheese and lime illuminate the avocado's depth beautifully (as with guacamole!). The Bataan-based purveyor delivers to Metro Manila on Tuesdays.

Avocado, as you know, has a natural creaminess that's great in rich applications, and paired with crunchier elements like a pie crust, you get textural complexity that makes for an even more pleasure-inducing dessert in our book. Let Wildflour's Avocado Pie (P1,650/whole) teach you the way; in it is a lush avocado mousse and whipped white chocolate ganache atop a buttery graham crust.

Sebastian's is shining the spotlight on the fruit with not just one or two, but a whopping seven avocado-themed frozen treats that ice cream fans ought not to miss. We're talking creamy scoops (P420/pint) like the less-is-more Avocado Dream, creamy-tangy Avocado Strawberry, and Avocado Machiatto (where the fruit is given the robust treatment with flavors of coffee, chocolate, and toasted almonds); an Avocado Chocolate Chip (P140) ice-cream sandwich; Avocado Butter Cake Ice Cream Cake (P155/slice, P1,650/whole); Avocado Almond Poppits (P260/pack of 14); and the surprisingly harmonious Avocado Peanut Butter Dive Bar (P135).

Avocado gets the fruit-shortcake treatment in Chef Kerri's Baking Room's towering Avocados 'n Cream Cake (P2,800). It wows in size and impact, being 10 by six inches in diameter and height respectively and coming dotted with fresh avocado pieces and gold flakes. And as you slice inside you're greeted by the winning light-yet-lush combo of vanilla chiffon cake and a smooth avocado-tinged frosting with a soothing pale-green hue.
