And did you know Avocados and Dark Chocolate are two of the most perfect foods? Avocados are packed with the good kind of fat that helps lower cholesterol. Dark chocolate is packed with antioxidants. Plus peppermint has been known to smooth the tummy and aid in digestion. Combine all three and you have a decadent powerhouse of a dessert.
1 ripe Avocados, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
1 cup semi sweet chocolate
1/2 cup almond milk
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup agave nectar
1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract
Pinch of salt
1. Melt dark chocolate in a double broiler. Bring about an inch of water to a simmer in your saucepan. Set the heatproof bowl in the mouth of the pot, making sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl. Stir chocolate occasionally as it softens. When you have just a few small un-melted chunks, remove bowl from heat (residual heat will melt the rest).
2. Place the remaining ingredients in a food processor and pulse on high for 15-20 seconds. Add the melted dark chocolate and pulse for another 10-15 seconds. Spoon into 4 serving cups and chill for an hour before serving.
