This recipe is for the adventurous, but is really rich and deeply chocolatey! This is also a great one for those that are clean-eating or paleo (substitutions for these lifestyles are offered in the ingredients section!)


3 ripened avocados (to tell if they’re ripe, give them a tiny squeeze. They should give just slightly. Also, you can remove the stem from the top. If it pops out easily, it’s ripe!)
1/2 C low-calorie or no-calorie sweetener (to keep this paleo-friendly, use honey or coconut sugar)
1 T good quality vanilla (1 tsp per avocado)
1/3 C good quality cocoa powder
1/3 C heavy cream (or half and half. If you are on paleo, you can use coconut milk)

Combine all ingredients in food processor. Process until almost smooth. Stop processor and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula. Continue to process until smooth and very well combined.

Transfer to preferred serving bowl and chill.
