If you don't tell them it's avocado, they won't know... I frost cakes with this too!

 

Avocado is a superfood, loaded with healthy fats (omega 3s), and fiber. Avocados are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and vitamins B2, B3, B5, B6, and folate. They also contain important minerals like magnesium, and potassium, and they provide lutein, and beta-carotene, important antioxidant nutrients.

 

The flavonoids in cacao make it a superfood. Organic, raw cacao contains a variety of unique phytonutrients (plant based goodness), including high amounts of sulfur, magnesium and phenylethylamine. In fact, it's said that if you crave chocolate, you may have a magnesium deficiency. 

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe avocado

  • Raw cacao powder

  • Honey or maple syrup

Instructions:

  • Put all in a food processor or a blender, add cacao and sweetener to taste

Enjoy!
