If you have a sweet tooth, but you tend to eat healthier, you will be happy to try the following avocado chocolate cake, as it is a mixture of countless health benefits and a delicious taste.
Avocados are among the healthiest fruits on the planet, rich in various nutrients, such as calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, manganese, sodium, phosphorus, and vitamins C, E, K, B6, B9, B1, B5, and B2. Moreover, they are high in potassium than bananas.
While we usually add these fruits to sandwiches, dips, and salads, “in most countries, they’re regularly used in desserts!”- says Dr. Josh Axe, DC, DMN, CNS.
“Around the world, they’re used in similar ways as coconuts and commonly paired with raw cocoa — furthering their health benefits even more. Their mild flavor, texture and creamy consistency make avocados a fantastic ingredient in treats like chocolate mousse. Now that’s just another one of many avocado benefits!”
Therefore, here is how to make this incredibly tasty chocolate avocado cake:
Avocado Chocolate cake- recipe
- 3-Cups all-purpose flour (coconut flour or rice flour)
- 5 tbsp. Dark Chocolate cocoa powder
