Choc-Mint Cacao Dipping Sauce

I have always had a massive sweet tooth and the treat I succumb to most is chocolate. It is by far my biggest weakness and now that I am eating vegan I can no longer eat the blocks of chocolate I used to pick up in the supermarket. But it doesn’t mean I can’t get my chocolate fix, and when I want to indulge this is my go-to recipe.

Usually I enjoy it with a good handful of fresh strawberries, or I mix it through some soy ice-cream, but sometimes I just get the teaspoon out and dig in. We all have those moments, right?! 😉

It is super simple and only requires a food processor or a stick blender or whatever it is that you have in your kitchen to whizz things up in. Here is the rundown –

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/8 cup cacao
  • 1/8 cup rice malt syrup (you could use any sweetener here, honey, maple syrup, stevia, etc)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 drops peppermint oil

METHOD:

  • Place all your ingredients into the food processor, mix until smooth.  

          If the consistency is a little bit too thick for you then add a little bit of cold water to thin it out.

If you start with cold avocado then you can enjoy it immediately, otherwise scrape it into a bowl, cover and refrigerate for an hour or so.

 

That’s it! Too easy. Too delicious. Plus, it’s all natural, there are no refined sugars, no dairy, no nasties. Just pure, wholesome homemade food.

Also, feel free to play around with the flavours, I think choc-orange would be AMAZING! If you have some oils or extracts at home then give them a go. Just a few little drops can make a whole new experience and tastebud sensation.

If you make it please comment below and let me know what you think!

Enjoy xx
