decadent and healthy raw chocolate and double berry parfait
Today is warm and it is easter. Even though I didn't grow up celebrating Easter like people here in Australia do I decide to join a bit of indulgence today...
The best parfait ever! and I am sharing the recipe with you...
1 avocado (I used reed but other variety will work too)
1/4 cup raw cocoa powder
1/4 date syrup (paste)
2 tsp raw coconut oil, melted
a few drops of stevia to sweeten to your liking
Blend all but coconut oil and stevia in a blender till smooth
add the oil and blend again.
adjust the sweetness with stevia
1 1/2 banana, frozen
1/8 cup coconut meat
1/4 cup blueberry, frozen
2 tbs pomegranate juice
Blend all the ingredient in a blender. Unfrozen Bananas and blueberry work as well. If you are using frozen fruits you can leave to soften before blending.
raw coconut oil (melted)
raw cocoa powder
Mix all together
FEW FROZEN RASPBERRY FOR GARNISH
place half of the chocolate layer in the bottom of a glass
top with blueberry layer
place in the freezer to harden a bit
garnish with the frozen raspberry and drizzle the chocolate sauce over the top. The sauce will harden as it touches the cold berries.
Then ENJOY the every mouthful!
