Ingredients

  • 1 ripe avocado , pitted
  • 3/4 cup frozen cherries
  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 3 Tablespoons almond milk , or water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 4 to 5 Medjool dates , pitted*
  • 1/8 teaspoon pure almond extract (optional)

Instructions

  • Combine all of the ingredients in high-speed blender and blend until completely smooth. You can also use a mini food processor if you don't have a blender, but you will need to stop and scrape down the sides several times to help break down the dates. (Or just use maple syrup for a smoother result.)
  • Serve immediately, or store in the fridge for later.

Notes

*You can replace the dates with 1 to 2 tablespoons of pure maple syrup, or with stevia to taste.
