Avocado alternative

WP_20150401_005 (2)

Avocados are one of these trees I am really keen on growing. It produces such a lovely fruit and I use it all the time. Wouldn’t it be amazing to walk into the garden and have an abundance of these lovely shiny green fruits.

 They can easily be grown here in New Zealand, as I do buy only local ones these days. They’re much nicer and fresher than their imported cousins. It does mean there are times of the year I have to live without them, but at the moment there are still avocado’s aplenty! Lucky me, as I am looking for alternatives to the commercial Easter chocolate overload and avocados provide just that!

 Have you tried cacao avocado mousse? If you haven’t – give it a go, it is so good and so simple:

 2 avocados
1/3 cup raw cacao powder ( of course I recommend to use a good Dutch brand)
4 tablespoons of coconut cream
2 tablespoons of coconut milk
2 tablespoons of manuka honey

Blend until smooth, spoon into 4 cups and cool for about 15 minutes

 How’s that for a great chocolate alternative?!

  1. I loooooovvve avocados too. But here in my part of Canada, they are definitely not grown so I am jealous of your ability to buy them fresh and locally. Happy blogging this month. Have a great day; maybe one with an avocado. Cheryl

  3. As a Canadian in Colorado, I don’t benefit from native avocados! But I love them on sandwiches, with my breakfast eggs, in guacamole, you name it! My first real experience with avocados was when my friends and I were driving on some logging trails in Quebec and got stuck in a deep puddle! We hiked 4 hours, trying to get a signal and all we had on us were some crackers and two avocados. LOL Those avocados were like filet mignon at that point!

  4. I lived in Auckland for five years and one of the things I noticed is how much Kiwis love avocados. It seems like they’ll put it on almost anything 🙂 Sadly, I’m not a fan. Looking forward to your A to Z posts to remind me of my NZ days.
