I’ve been working on variations of this recipe for over a year and I’m finally ready to share. Blood sugar balance has huge implications for physical and mental health, weight and longevity. The ingredients in this recipe have been selected with that in mind
2 ripe medium-size avocados
1 1/4 to 1 1/2 c. almond milk (unsweetened)
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 dropperful (15 to 20 drops) stevia liquid (non-caloric sweetener)
Smigeon* of salt
Add the following and process until creamy. If blending, stop to release air bubbles as needed.
- 1 Tbsp. cinnamon, or 1/2 Tbsp. 5 Spice powder (optional)
- 4 to 6 Tbsp. cacao** powder (unsweetened)
- 2 Tbsp. ground flaxseeds
Last but not least, for extra thickening power blend in 1-2 Tbsp. virgin coconut oil (room temperature)
Pour into serving bowl or individual dessert cups and refrigerate for a couple of hours. Enjoy a truly guiltless pleasure! Yields about 6 4-ounce servings.
Variations Replace 1 avocado with an under-ripe banana. Bananas that are slightly green contain a “resistant starch” that helps w blood sugar balance.
Replace 1 avocado with 1/2 cup fresh berries, or a 3 or 4 fresh figs.
*FYI — A smidgeon is 1/32 teaspoon (or 1/2 pinch). www.accuracyproject.org/pinchdash.html
**Raw and unprocessed cacao beans are superfoods! Antioxidants, nutrients and some health benefits are lost when it’s processed into cocoa. However, unsweetened cocoa powder could be substituted in this recipe.
