If you’ve never used avocados for a dessert, you’re in for a surprise with this one.

Serves 2:

Prep time: 15 minutes

Rich in heart healthy fats, avocados blend into a creamy, velvety texture that when combined with cocoa powder, turn into a lush chocolate dessert. This version takes it to a new level with the addition of warm Mexican spices and vanilla.

Make sure your avocados are ripe and soft; too hard and they won’t blend well. A little browning is okay, you’ll never see it in the end result.
