Decadent Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Since converting to a Paleo lifestyle 2.5 years ago, I still can’t get rid of the cravings for chocolate.  It’s just one of those things I have to ‘cheat’ or indulge in from time to time.  But I think I’ve found a way to do it without feeling quite so bad.  It tastes exquisite and is beautiful to look at.

Here’s What You Need:

2 tbsp coconut oil

1/2 cup coco (the darker the better because that means less sugar.  I go for 75% coco)

1/2 cup honey

1 Avocado (peeled and pitted)

3/4 cup coconut milk

Directions:

1.  Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

2.  Pour into a bowl and chill for several hours.

3.  Once chilled, layer strawberries and chocolate and top with a mint leaf. Serve!Image

I promise you will never go back ot the instant kind again.  Even the cavebabies approved and wanted more.  I wonder what they would think if they knew they had just eaten an avocado?
