Servings 12


  • 2 ripe avocados med/large, peeled and pitted, 2 ½ small avocados
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup

  • 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon optional


  1. Add avocado to a food processor fitted with an S blade and blend until smooth.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and blend again until smooth. You may need to stop and scrape the sides with a spatula a couple of times. (Add the maple syrup on top of the cocoa powder to keep the dust down.)
