CACAO AVOCADO GANACHE

This is such a tasty dessert, which I have had on the odd occasion for breakfast! NO harm done AND once again Chocolate for Breakfast! Perfect!

INGREDIENTS:

THE BASE
– 1 cup almonds or hazelnuts (I used almonds)
– 2/3 cup dates, pitted
– 1/2 tsp salt

(use 7 or 8″ a springform pan)

THE FILLING
–

  • 1 1/2 big ripe avocados
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 1 Tbspn coconut oil
  • 1 Tbspn raw coconut sugar or rapidura/any sugar you like (I don’t use any other sweetener beside the dates)
  • 3 Tbspns Date paste (whip up 12 dates with a little water in the food processor – voila – date paste)
–
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essences
  • Pinch of salt

HERE’S HOW:

  1. Base: In a food processor, blend the almonds. Add dates and salt and blend till the mixture turns dough like. Add in 1 tsp of coconut oil and mix it in with your hands.
  2.  Line the pan with glad wrap. Press the dough into the pan to form the base. Leave in the freezer for 30 mins to an hour.
  3. Filling: Place all the remaining filling ingredients in a food processor and process till smooth. Taste as you go along. Pour the ganache over the base and send it back to the freezer for around 2 – 3 hours (if possible).
  4. A DOLLOP OF COCONUT YOGHURT TO FINISH IT OFF

Perfect – enjoy
