3 tbsp coconut oil
1 oz 100% pure dark chocolate
3 tbsp cacao powder
1 tsp instant coffee
6 pitted medjool dates
2 large ripe avocados, pitted
1/4 cup coconut milk
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
- Set a small metal bowl atop a small saucepan of water, filled about one-third of the way. Set on high heat until it boils, then turn down to a simmer.
- Melt the first four ingredients in the bowl, stirring occasionally. Set aside while preparing the next part of the recipe.
- In a blender or food processor, add the remaining ingredients and blend until almost smooth. Add in the chocolate mixture and continue to blend until completely smooth.
- Scoop or pipe into glass bowls. Place in refrigerator to firm up for four hours or eat it soft and warm straight out of the blender.
