I'm a vegetarian, but have no desire to become a vegan. Well, let me take that back. I'd love to be a vegan, but I'm too selfish at this point in my life to take the time and to have the dedication to be a vegan. So for now, I'm just a vegetarian. However, I'm picky about the fruits and veggies I will eat. Avocados are on the top of my list of “do not eat” foods. Gross. I don't like how they smell, how they look, or how they taste. They're mushy on the inside and like… almost scaly on the outside. So, needless to say, I don't eat them.
Let me take that back. I used to not eat them. Now, I'll eat them as often as I can… in the form of Chocolate Avocado Fruit Dip! Why? Because you can't taste the avocados!
This recipe is 5 PointsPlus for 1/4 cup fruit dip. You also have to count points of what you're dipping, so keep that in mind when choosing!
When I saw STL Veg Girl on Show Me Saint Louis, I was instantly mesmerized. Why? Because I don't know many other bloggers that are vegetarians, and just seeing her name told me that she was going to be talking about veggies! :)
STL Veg Girl calls this chocolate “mousse”, but I don't like mousse at all so if you have the same aversion to that weird stuff, I don't want to scare you off. It tastes nothing like mousse, and the texture is more like a thick brownie batter almost.
Vegan Chocolate Avocado Fruit Dip
- 2 avocados
- 1/4 C agave nectar
- 1/4 C raw sugar
- 1/2 TBS vanilla extract
- 1/3 – 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
This is so easy! Pit and score avocados so they're easy to work with. Empty avocados into food processor, then pulse a few times until creamy. Add agave nectar, raw sugar, vanilla extract, and unsweetened cocoa powder.
I used 1/2 cup because I do not like avocados and wanted to make sure I didn't taste them. As you get used to eating this fruit dip, though, you may want to reduce the amount to 1/3 cup.
Serve with fresh fruit of any kind. I like to use it as a dip but like STL Veg Girl said, it can be used as a mousse as well. So if you want to eat it by the spoonful, go for it – and don't feel guilty!
This will make about 1-2 cups of fruit dip. Double the recipe if you're serving to more than two people, because it's gonna go fast!
