Ingredients
  

  • 1 mashed ripe avocado
  • 2 tbsp raw cacao powder

  • 2 tbsp coconut nectar syrup could you honey or rice syrup perhaps

Instructions
 

  • Make sure that the avocado is mashed well so that it has a creamy texture.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and thoroughly combine.

  • Scoop into a small serving dish and pop in the fridge for a couple of hours.
