- 1 ripe peeled avocado
- ½ to ¾ cup water (start with a ½ cup and add more if needed to blend)
- 3 tablespoons raw unsweetened cacao powder
- 8 chopped pitted dates
- Dash of vanilla extract
- Blend all ingredients in a blender.
- Serve chilled.
The avocado has excellent fats, the dates add some natural sweetness and fiber. The raw unsweetened cacao is packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
For a change, you could substitute blended coconut milk or almond milk for the water, or add a pinch of ground cinnamon. You could also top it with pistachio or other nuts.
