  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1/4 cup cacao or cocoa powder
  • 2-4 tbsp almond milk, or other plant-based milk
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • cacao nibs, toasted finely chopped nuts, berries, or flaky sea salt for garnish


  • Put the flesh of the avocados in a blender or food processor, add the cacao powder or cocoa, plant-based milk, banana, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and sea salt and process until very smooth and creamy.
  • Spoon into serving dishes. Cover and chill for 30 minutes or longer. Garnish with your choice of coconut, cacao nibs, finely chopped nuts, strawberries, raspberries and/or flaky sea salt.


Adjust the sweetener to your taste. If you're banana is very ripe, you won't need as much maple syrup.
