What fruit is rich in nourishing omega 6 fatty acids, adds the most amazing creamy, silky texture to recipes, and mixes astonishingly well with the flavor of chocolate? Well, avocado of course! Simply mix up some ripe avocado, cacao powder, your choice of sweetener and dates and you’ll have an instant chocolate pudding full of nutrition and life giving energy!

Ingredients

1/2 cup cacao powder

2 avocados

1/2 cup maple syrup or honey 

5 medjool dates (optional as these give the mousse more density) 

1/4 cup coconut sugar (optional) 

Pinch of salt 

 

 

Instructions

1) Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until it is smooth and creamy.

2) Chill in the fridge until you’re ready to use.

**Hint it’s best eaten within 2 days. When icing cakes do so immediately before serving.

My name is Ulyana Michailov and I am a naturopath and acupuncturist with a clinic based in South Australia. This blog is a unique blend of my passion for NATURAL botanical health; my endeavours in the kitchen, the plant kingdom and all things creative and fun. Think food, art, spirituality, travel, health and a little bit of MAGIC. “Forest Faery” is all about connecting nature and humanity. My favourite past time is reflecting on nature, whether that be pottering about a herb garden or adventuring through a forest. My interests are in deep ecology, nature writing, photography and environmental protection and awareness. Even though I love the outdoors, I am also a very homely person and enjoy getting creative in the kitchen. Areas I cover are raw food cuisine, baking, preserving, fermenting and pickling as well as concocting natural beauty recipes, herbal salves and ‘Magical Botanical’ herbal tea remedies. Each recipe is designed to taste heavenly but drawn from ingredients which can only be made by the EARTH. The plant kingdom amazes me with its rainbow brilliance, pigments that promise antioxidants and radiant health. These recipes can only add to your health, wellbeing and beauty, never take away. (Don’t be cynical!) I draw knowledge from naturopathy and combine it with my talent to make delicious food that’s appealing to the eye. The finishing touch is the sprinkling of my words.
