So my hubby and I went out last night for our anniversary dinner last weekend and I had the most amazing desert I think I’ve ever had. Okay, it was the only desert I’ve had out in many years so that was a treat in itself, but wow, this was a-maaazing. And no, it’s not Whole 30 approved, but when the waitress come and told us what was in it, and being that it was a special occassion, I just couldn’t turn it down. Believe me, you wouldn’t have either! Needless to say, I couldnt wait to try to recreate it!
What is so fun and awesome about this was the main ingredient (don’t judge before you try it) ! Any guesses? Don’t peek. I’ll give you a hint…it’s a vegetable. You peeked, didn’t you? Can you believe it? Avocados!! It was better than any other chocolate pudding, mouse etc. that I’ve ever had! On top of it being healthy, the recipes has so few ingredients, and it is also the easiest dessert I’ve ever made! I told you I get excited when I find new things that I love! So fun! And, my in-laws, whom I’m very proud of by the way, (have been eating healthy lately and are feeling great, sleeping well and also loosing a good amount of weight (bonus!)), came over for dinner and they ate it as well. My mother-in-law, who is a serious chocolate connosour, said it was “really good!” and my father in law said it was “FANTASTIC, really fantastic!!!”. Woo hoo!
Here’s what you need:
- 2 ripe avocados
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder (i didnt use cacao because i wasn’t sure it would blend together)
- 1/2 cup raw honey or agave nectar
- 1/2 cup coconut milk (trader joe’s green can)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 salt
Mix all of the ingredients together with a hand blender until smooth, scoop into ramakins and enjoy immediately or put in the fridge for a bit to get it cooler and enjoy! Yep, that’s it!
By the way, I would either pour a little coconut milk on your treat or dip each scoup into a little milk. It REALLY balances it out nicely and the whole family agreed it was even better with the coconut milk!
