Guilt-Free-Chocolate-Pots

A couple of months before summer I spent a whole Sunday making and photographing no-bake desserts. These were to put together an e-book but as usual time passed and I didn’t get my book done. Do you constantly run out of time?. Is it just me?.

Anyway, this was amongst the desserts that I produced.  It is made out of a surprising combination of ingredients that actually don’t include sugar, that is if you don’t count that shard of praline on the top. It’s unusual, well for me anyway because I don’t have any kind of sugar avoidance issues nor do I have an absolute need to eat pointedly healthy desserts. Dessert is dessert to me . I totally enjoy them, I think you can go over the top but just don’t make it every day. Well that’s what I think anyway. I would be very upset with out cake.

But this week quite a few of the people that I know ( and usually give desserts to) have told me they are detoxing!.( their words not mine). So, because I am a caring person and I just don’t want them to miss out on anything I took the opportunity to dig out this dessert I made months ago. I hope the fact there is no sugar in it doesn’t make you suspicious, because if I read a statement like that I would feel a little suspicious. Relax though, it is really the most chocolaty , almost mousse like little pot of guilt free dessert you could ask for. That is why I added some praline. Life needs balance.

There are two ways to make this dessert. One has more ingredients than the other, but both are pretty much a healthy dessert. You will be surprised how the ingredients work to make a very satisfying dessert. I love them, but I would also like to spread my chocolate onto a beautiful pastry base………..mmm. Ok, so I am not on any kind of detox, mentally or physically.

Guilt Free Chocolate Pudding
 
My Kitchen Stories: 
Dessert
You will need a food processor for this recipe. This will make the ingredients silky smooth and irresistible. Use perfect ripe avocados. Do not use any over ripe or blackened fruit.
Ingredients
  • 2 large avocados ( approximately 300 gm deseeded and skinned)
  • 100 gm chopped dark chocolate, I have used 70% but you can use any other good chocolate
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 Tablespoons maple syrup or more to taste.
Instructions
  1. Put the chocolate into a bowl and melt it in the microwave in ½ minute bursts, or over a double boiler. Set aside but dont let it get cool.
  2. Put the avocado into a food processor and purée till creamy.
  3. Open up the lid and add the vanilla and chocolate and 1 Tablespoon of maple syrup ( or honey). Purée till well combined. Taste and add more sweetener if you like.
  4. Spoon into 2 x cup sized containers or 3 smaller ones.
Chocolate Mousse

Here’s another good idea. Sprinkle with crushed chocolate chip cookies or a bit of sea salt. Crushed roasted nuts or toasted muesli would also make this even more delicious.
