Since it’s a holiday weekend and I know you worked out extra hard this week, you deserve a little treat! Can you guess what the superstar ingredient of this decadent chocolate dessert is? I’ll give you a hint… it’s loaded with 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid.

Avocado!

Yes, this indulgent chocolates creation is made from heart healthy avocado, antioxidant rich cocoa, sweet fiber dense dates, and creamy almond milk! This is the perfect afternoon pick me up to give your body the boost it needs.

Chocomole is so much fun, and so versatile, the possibilities are endless!
Use as:
pudding
spread on a slice of whole grain toast
dip for whole grain pretzels or strawberries
mousse or filling
vegan frosting


Chocomole

makes 4 servings

1 large ripe Hass avocado
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup pitted medjool dates
4 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract

Remove pits from dates. Slice avocado and remove the pit. Using a spoon, scoop the green flesh from the skin. Combine the avocado, dates, and all other ingredients in a food processor or high powered blender and blend until smooth. Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour and serve.
Note: I like to refrigerate my avocado beforehand.

    I started on a whole food diet almost a month ago thanks to your blog. Today I made this and thoroughly enjoyed it as a dessert treat. In fact, I really wanted to eat the entire batch in one sitting! Thankfully my self-control won the battle with my sweet tooth. Thank you for the continued inspiration!

    just made this and was going to make the raw brownie bites but my blender isn’t high powered and my food processor broke. perhaps someone will lend me one. 🙁 still has some date chunks in it but still super delish! thank you!

    Mmmmm… This recipe is great! I actually think it is a little too sweet. I’m going to try and make it again and use less dates. I love this site!!! I’ve lost 10 lbs already and feel more energized. This is the best I’ve felt in years 🙂

    My dad is lactose intolerant and cannot eat many dishes he used to love. I made this and served it as a pudding…he was in heaven! He hadn’t had something this creamy for years. LOL… I did not tell him there was an avocado in it… I just said it was “special”.
