And here we go with a classic and must have of healthy desserts recipes!
Avocado may seem an odd choice when paired with chocolate, but avocado is actually a fruit and when finely mashed and combined with cocoa like in this recipe its typical taste disappear.
For this recipe I used raw cocoa which differs from regular cocoa powder because it is toasted at very low temperature, thus preserving the amazing nutrients and natural compounds of the raw cocoa berry.
The avocadoes need to be very ripe, the same type of ripeness you would use for guacamole.
Both cocoa and avocados are filled with incredible nutrients, like potassium, magnesium, folates, vitamin E, traces of other vitamin and minerals, but also rich in natural anti-oxidants and phytonutrients that stimulate our feel good hormones & neurotransmitters.
The benefits of making your own chocolate dessert is that you can control the quality of the ingredients, choosing wholesome and nutrients rich foods but most importantly you can control the quantity of sugar that you use. And that is in my opinion, one of the main assets.
