So now I have some frozen avocados that thaw to a creamy consistency along with some fresh mint leftover from my watermelon salad creation. What to do?
Find a mint recipe that just might have some avocado in the mix.
1.5 frozen avocados, thawed
1/4 cup raw honey
1/4 cup cacao or cocoa powder
1/4 cup water
2 t vanilla extract
3 or 4 mint leaves, minced
dash of salt
Combine the avocado, honey, cacao powder, vanilla, mint, and salt in a blender or food processor. Gradually add the water, one tablespoon at a time, until you like the consistency.
Place your creation into a pretty glass with a mint leaf on top and admire it.
This makes one serving if you’re eating with me. However, because this is such a rich dessert, I’d opt to use it as a topping on pound cake with cherries or strawberries added. You’d only need a small dab of the chocolate concoction and could probably serve four this way.
One last note – The mint leaves make a big difference. When I first made this I forgot to add the mint. I put the pudding back into the processor and added the mint. Bingo! Good stuff.
