Raw Dark Chocolate Avocado Pots // Recipe


Hey lovelies! Back with another recipe this week, and yay it's my favourite - a dessert! These little pots of dark chocolate-y goodness are so decadent and rich, with a silky and light texture almost like mouse...I think I'm in love haha! This is a raw recipe too (so no cooking for us lazy people!) and as healthy as chocolate dessert could possibly be, containing all natural sweeteners like dates, and superfoods like chia seeds. Oh and of course I mustn't forget the avocado! Not gonna lie, the thought of eating chocolate and avocado together was definitely scary at first; I had no idea what it was going to taste like, only that I had seen it all over Pintrest and thought I should to give it a go. And what d'ya know? It tastes pretty freaking amazingggg! The avocado in this recipe makes the chocolate pots so beautifully smooth and creamy, and don't worry - amongst all the other ingredients that avo taste is completely un-noticeable (Honest!) Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did eating it haha!

(Makes 2 Dessert Pots)
You will need: 
  • 2 ripe Avocados
  • 4 Medjool Dates, pitted 
  • 1/4 cup of unsweetened almond milk
  • A tbsp of Cacao powder
  • 40g Melted Dark choc (mmmmmm!)
  • Raspberries and Pistachios to top i
  • Chia seeds (as little or as much as you want)


Method:

1. Slice the avocados in half, remove the pits, and the scoop the flesh into a food processor or nutri bullet. 

2. Blend blend blend until the avocado is smooth and creamy, then add your remaining ingredients.

3. Puree everything on  high until all that chocolate-y goodness is well combined, you want it to have the smooth and fluffy texture of mouse. Feel free to add some more dates to sweeten it further if you like by the way!

4. Now, just spoon the mix into little pots (this recipe should make two medium sized pots like you can see in my pictures,) and pop into the fridge for 1 hour to set slightly. 

5. Then take out of the fridge and top with whatever you fancy really! I used raspberries and pistachios - which oh myyyy tasted so delicious together - but it's totally up to you, something like crumbled dark chocolate or fresh mint might be nice too!


Thanks for reading, and don't forget to tweet me a pic if you try this out @Justmorgsx.
Love you all,
