It can take awhile to wrap one’s head around the idea that chocolate and avocado could taste good together. To be honest, we even had doubts. One bite changed everything.
This is a fantastic treat for quite a few reasons:
- Full of healthy fats
- Low sugar
- Dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegan
- Kid-friendly (as in, they won’t know anything green was used in the production of this dessert)
Make this recipe because it’s healthy, or make it because it’s amazingly delicious – you’ll win either way!
2 avocados, ripe and pitted
1/2 cup of unsweetened chocolate powder
1/2 cup of coconut milk (or other non-dairy alternative)
5 tbsp maple syrup
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
pinch of cinnamon
Cut avocado and remove the pit before scooping flesh into a blender. Add the cocoa powder, coconut milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon and blend until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to serve chilled, about 20 minutes.
Top with fresh raspberries, shredded coconut, and/or cashews.
