Chocolate Avocado Fruit Dip

It’s not very often that the words chocolate and avocado are used together. So when I came across this recipe in Runner’s World I was a little skeptic. However, upon making it I found that you could not  taste the avocados, and the dip was rich in flavor. My 3 year old and 1 year old absolutely loved it!

Avocado’s are a great substitute or ‘add in’ for any recipe. Avocado’s are full of antioxidants that fight inflammation, vitamin E, vitamin B, as well as copper and zinc (just to name a few). They also lower the amount of LDL cholesterol which clog arteries!

Chocovado Dip Recipe:

Finely blend 2 ripe avocados,
add 1/2 C. unsweetened cocoa powder,
1/2 C. honey,
1 teaspoon of vanilla

Blend well and serve with fruit! This can also be used as a frosting.

TIPS:
Avocado’s can be used a substitute for butter, margarine or sour cream.
Avocados should be stored at room temperature until ripe, then place them in the fridge. To speed up ripening, place them in a paper bag.
