There are very few of us who don’t need a little chocolate fix every once in a while. In my case, it’s about three times a day!
Until now, I’d been buying some gorgeous organic dark chocolate that’s full of organic antioxidant goodness and eating just one square every so often – oh, who am I kidding – ok, so a whole bar at a time.
But I’ve discovered this little gem of a recipe that’s healthy, natural, bursting with antioxidants and omega-3, easy-peasy to make and curbs my choccy cravings with just a teaspoon or two. And you’ll never guess what the magic ingredient is…
- 1 ripe avocado
- 25g cacao powder
- 120ml agave syrup
- 1 tsp orange rind
- Place all the items in a bowl and blend with a stick mixer.
Stores well in the fridge for several days.
You can adjust quantities to taste – for example, I sometimes leave out the orange rind altogether.
Agave syrup is available at larger supermarkets or health food stores. Cacao powder is available at healthfood stores.
