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.


Serves: 4 

  • 3 ripe avocados - peeled, pitted, and cubed
  • 45g unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 120ml maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon water, or as needed

Prep:10min  ›  Ready in:10min 

  1. Place the avocados, cocoa powder, maple syrup, lemon juice, vanilla extract and salt in the work bowl of a food processor; blend until smooth and creamy. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, as needed to make the dessert the consistency you prefer. Eat right away, or chill and serve cold.


This recipe is vegan and gluten-free. Use maple syrup, honey or agave syrup to sweeten.
