When making healthy desserts, avocados can be your best friend. They provide a creamy texture without the need to add any nasties… and happen to be packed with heart-healthy nutrients to boot!
• 1 very ripe avocado
• 1 tablespoon almond butter
• 1 tablespoon maple syrup or 1/2 teaspoon stevia, if you want to keep the sugar down
• 1-2 tablespoons cocoa powder, to taste, plus more to serve (optional)
1 Scoop the avocado flesh into a blender or food processor. Add the remaining ingredients with 1–2 tablespoons of cold water.
2 Process on full speed until all the ingredients have mixed into a smooth chocolatey dessert.
3 Spoon the mixture into ramekins and chill in the fridge for two to three hours before serving, sprinkled with cocoa powder, if you like.
