Chocolate Pots de Creme
1/2 cup Date Paste (See below for recipe)
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups mashed avocados (3 avocados)
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tablespoon coconut oil (melted)
Place date paste, syrup, vanilla and salt into a food processor and process until smooth. Add the avocado and process until blended. Scrape down sides with a rubber scraper occasionally to make sure everything is mixed well. Add the cocoa powder and coconut oil and process.
Pour the blended mixture into 6 ramekins, cups or mugs. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving. Will keep for 5 days in fridge if covered.
32 pitted medjool dates
3 cups filtered water
Place the dates in a large bowl and cover with the water. Soak for 20 minutes. Soften the dates in the water by massaging them with your hands for a minute. Drain the dates, but reserve the water.
Place the dates and 1/2 cup of reserved water in a food processor. Process into a smooth paste. The paste will keep for 2 weeks stored in the fridge and 1 month if stored in the freezer.
