Recipe makes 3-5 servings
7/8 cup/150 g dairy-free dark chocolate, plus extra for serving
2 large ripe avocados
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
3 tablespoons maple syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
(7oz) 1 x 160g tin/can of coconut cream
A couple of fresh cherries, deseeded and finely chopped
1. Place a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water, making sure the base doesn’t touch the water.
Break the chocolate into the bowl and allow it to melt, then set aside to cool slightly.
2. Halve and destone the avocados, then scoop the flesh into a food processor, discarding the skins.
Add the remaining ingredients (except the melted chocolate) and pulse for a few seconds. Scrape down the sides with a spatula, then pulse again to combine.
3. Pour in the cooled chocolate, then pulse a final time until creamy and smooth.
Divide the mixture between 5 small bowls, then pop in the fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes.
Serve with an extra grating of chocolate and a whole cherry!
