Cacao is high in antioxidants, and avocado a healthy fat bursting with Omega-3’s. Do not skimp on the quality of chocolate by substituting with sugary, low cacoa percentage chocolate.

SERVING SIZE: 1 Tablespoon

What to buy:

5 ounces Dark chocolate (60-72%)

1 Avocado, ripe, peeled and cubed

Optional for garnish:

Mint leaves

Berries

What to do:

In the top of a double boiler, melt chocolate over medium heat. Do not mix chocolate with water. Let cool slightly. If you do not have a double boiler, add chocolate to a metal bowl placed over a saucepan filled with about 1/3 water and heat water to medium heat. Allow chocolate to melt while stirring occasionally, being careful not to overcook.

In a food processor, blend chocolate with avocado until smooth.

Remove and place in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate at least 1-2 hours.

Remove from refrigerator and with a small melon ball size scoop or large tablespoon, scoop mixture onto serving plate.

Garnish with mint leaves and/or berries. Pictured with berries and dark chocolate peanut butter cup.
