Credit for this recipe goes directly to my friend Anne. She recently posted it, and I made a couple quick modifications to make it technically Whole30* safe. It’s incredibly fast to put together.
1 ripe avocado
2-3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
~1/4 c. coconut milk
3-4 dates (I like medjool) (note: dates are notoriously hard to process down…you may also add honey or agave instead if your food pro is a little on the anemic side)
1 vanilla bean*
1. Scoop out avocado and combine it with the cocoa powder, coconut milk and dates in a food pro.
2. Split the vanilla bean lengthwise, scrape out the seeds, and add to the food pro.
4. For best results, refrigerate until chilled.
Makes 2 small servings or 1 large if you’re very hungry.
*You could add 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract instead, but extracts usually have alcohol, which is not allowed on Whole30 (then again, the Paleo-ification of unhealthy recipes kind of isn’t in the protocol either…haha).
