Ingredients

  • 2 tablets (tablillas) Hernan Mexican chocolate
  • 2 cups Almond-coconut milk, unsweetened
  • 1 Avocado ripe, cut in half, flesh removed
  • 2 tbsp. Sugar or maple syrup

Instructions

  • Bring the coconut-almond milk to a very low simmer over low heat. Add chocolate tablets and sugar, and stir with a whisk or molinillo.
  • Once the chocolate has dissolved pour it in a container and let it cool completely in the fridge or freezer.
  • Place the chocolate mixture, avocado, and sugar in the blender, and puree until smooth.
  • Pour into popsicle molds, snap on the lids, and freeze for at least 5 hours.

Notes

• The recipe calls for 1 tablilla per cup of milk, but if you really like dark chocolate I would use 1 1/2 tablillas per cup of milk.
• You can use any sweetener of choice, maple syrup would be really good with this though.
• Make sure your avocado is ripe.
