It was good, it is very strongly of avocado which makes sense because that’s the main ingredient. So if you don’t like avocado this is not the recipe for you. I really enjoyed it after I put in the freezer to make it more like ice cream. That said, I can’t eat very much at a time because it does have such a strong avocado taste to it and too much overwhelms my palate.
I got 240g of avocado flesh from two “regular” fruits. This yielded three servings of 160g each. To get four servings of a size that’s more than a couple of spoon fulls you’d need some pretty large avocados. If yours are about the same weight as above, use less cacao powder or you’ll probably have to use a lot more honey/maple to bring up the sweetness. I used 50g of maple and 50g of honey to avoid a dominant flavour. Served with some fresh raspberries and a sprinkle of desiccated coconut - really lovely.
Absolutely love this recipe .. second time I’ve made it and this time I added a bit of low fat natural yogurt to counteract the bitterness of the cacao. It’s turned out richer and even more yum if that’s possible!

fantastic can freeze as ice cream
Too good. It is a blessing in disguise ❤ I added a heaped spoon of sour cream and used regular salt instead of sea salt. also added a drop of vanilla essence. didn't bled the ingredients but simply mashed and mixed using fork and spoon.

This is sooo good! I used my BlendTec blender with a little extra almond milk to smooth it out. Refrigerated overnight to thicken up more. Just started eating Paleo for my psoriasis and was in need of some sweet treats. This is magic! Thank u!

I didn't have enough honey, so I ended up adding 1/4 cup of sugar to sweeten it. So good! Hue hit with my kids too!

Super yummy! I cannot wait to make this again. I highly recommend refrigerating overnight. My teenage kids did not like it, but I think it is because they found out about the ingredients before tasting.

Great! Not sure why the other reviews were bad. You must use a food processor and almond milk. The ingredients states almonds but its almond milk (or any milk really)

Turned out good. Just like a mousse. I used Maple syrup and a teaspoon of almond butter with 1/2 cup of water because I didn't have the ingredients on hand. Turned out great.
