This is a decadent way to get good fats from avocado. You would never even know it was in there. I also love to add cayenne pepper to foods it works well with, as it has a large number of health benefits.
115g chopped dark chocolate (70% cocoa)
1 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp dark muscovado sugar (add more or less to suit your taste)
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 large ripe avocado
Zest of ½ orange
Pinch of cayenne pepper to taste
Add an orange segment and or chopped nuts to garnish
1. Melt the chocolate, coconut oil and sugar in a double boiler and add the vanilla
2. Blend the avocado and orange zest in a food processor and add the chocolate mixture. Keep blending until smooth.
3. Add enough cayenne pepper to give it a kick, but be careful, it should not be spicy.
4. Garnish as you wish.
Best eaten straight away, but can be kept for later
