Desserts are typically made with staples like eggs, butter, and cream to attain the creamy richness that not only feels good in our mouths when we eat them, but that carry the intense flavours of the other ingredients, in this case, cacao powder. This dessert will knock your socks off. It gets its fat and creaminess from avocado instead of butter and cream (not that there’s anything wrong with butter and cream), BUT with avocado, you’ll get lots of nutrition too.

 

Avocados will give this dessert a healthy dose of protein, fiber, prebiotic fiber, lutein and beta-carotene to name a few. Soooooo good. What are you waiting for? Make this dessert soon, you won’t be dissapointed.
