1 ripe avocado
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
6-12 Medjool dates, to taste
Splash of maple syrup (if needed – dates may be enough sweetness)
Water, just enough to keep everything moving in the blender
Put ¼ cup water in high-speed blender, food processor or VitMix. Add avocado and blend until creamy. Blend in cocoa powder and dates adding extra water as needed to keep things moving. Add more dates or maple syrup if needed to adjust sweetness. Blend until smooth & creamy.
This is so amazing and you will not know that you’re eating avocado! It makes an incredible pudding or you can spread it into a nut crust for a delicious chocolate pie. When I make the pudding, I oil two small ramekins with coconut oil and sprinkle them with shredded coconut to coat the bottom and sides, add the pudding and top with shaved chocolate or cocao nibs.
