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:
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?!
