still got chocolate on the brain...

tonight i whipped up my adaptation of Raw Goddess Heathy's Nutless Chocolate Creme from her Just Desserts ebook, topped with blackberries and Carmella's Whipped Cream. so good!

then i remembered i had chocolate chips in the freezer!


even better!

Chocolate Dream
(serves 2)

one ripe large avocado
1/4 C. agave
2 Tbsp water
1/2 tsp vanilla
pinch salt
1 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
5 heaping Tbsp cacao powder

in a high speed blender, blend first five ingredients well. add remaining ingredients, and continue to blend until smooth. chill for a few hours before serving.

tastes delicious plain, or topped with bananas or berries!

Whipped Cream

1/3 C. cashews
1/3 C. coconut milk (you can blend 1 part dried coconut flakes to 3 parts water)
1 T agave
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
2 T+2 tsp coconut butter/ melted
1 tsp non-gmo soy lecithin*

*lecithin is derived from soybeans and acts as an emulsifier. look for lecithin (preferably non-GMO), in granules or powdered form, at your local health food store. if using granules, make sure to grind them up in a high speed blender of coffee grinder.

blend all ingredients except lecithin until smooth. add lecithin and blend until thoroughly mixed. set in fridge for about 1 hr.



  1. This is all fabulous - the only thing i don't get is how you can forget you have chocolate chips in the freezer! :-)

  2. Funny, I woke up this morning thinking that I need to stock the fridge with some chocolate desserts. I think Vday has created a monster :). Your parfait looks delicious!

  3. thanks guys!

    antony - i know! john sure didn't forget, as he's been in the freezer quite often lately. we'll see how long they last! =)

    nikki - ha! i think you're right! i'm dying to make chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, topped with chocolate sauce!=)

  4. Glad to see those lovely little chocolate chips put to good use:) I love the glasses you served this in!

  5. Yum! Looks so delectable! Anyway, just had to stop by because I keep seeing you wherever I go it seems. :)

  6. What a pretty picture, looks great! I've been meaning to try a mousse for awhile, maybe this is my inspiration!

  7. evergreen - thank you!=) i just put some ripe bananas in the fridge, i'm thinking of a chocolate chip cookie dough "ice cream" later. mmm!

    hi hihorosie! so sweet of you to stop by. =)

    val - it's soooo good!

  8. I always have chocolate on the brain. Sometimes I try to stop, but then why should I? Some studies say it is good for you. That's the kind of research I like :-)

  9. Those pictures have made me hungry! There is nothing creamier and more decadent than avocado and cacao. Mmmmm...
