10 Minutes


  • 3 medium ripe avocados
  • 1/2 – 1 cup (depending on your taste preference) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup of natural honey or maple syrup, depending on sweetness preference

  2. Add the cocoa powder, honey, vanilla, and salt into the bowl.
  3. With a fork, break up the avocado and begin to mix together the ingredients.
  4. Tip lightly mixed ingredients into a blender and mix together thoroughly until ingredients take on a smooth, mousse like texture (you could also use a hand mixer).
