- 2 ripe avocados
- 1/3 cup cocoa or cacao powder (I used Trader Joe’s but you can use just about any kind)
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1/3 cup pure maple syrup (not Aunt Jemima’s colored corn syrup – REAL maple syrup)
- 2 T honey (I use organic and local but you can use any honey)
- Vanilla (a few drops of organic vanilla extract)
- Cinnamon (a pinch)
Put it all in a food processor and hit the blend button. Blend it until it reaches your desired consistency and then chill it (you can just stick it in the fridge until you’re ready to dish it up).
I served it over mixed frozen berries and it was fantastic! Even Mr. Celery Lover loved it. And the best part? I didn’t tell the youngest bonus daughter what was in it until she swore up and down that she loved it (as a means to get seconds). I wish I’d gotten a photo of her face when I told her it was made from avocados. Now you can go trick your own kids. Because that’s what we parents do. You’re welcome.
