About this recipe:Avocados are the surprise ingredient in this velvety, rich chocolate dessert. In my journey to applying the 90/10 rule to my food ethic – that is, 90 percent good for you and 10 percent not so good – I'm always on a quest to find healthier desserts. If I'm going to indulge, it better be good. This dessert certainly fits the bill when I want something rich and chocolatey.
3 ripe avocados - peeled, pitted, and cubed
45g unsweetened cocoa powder
120ml maple syrup
1 teaspoon lemon juice
