Riped avocados are ideal for desserts and baking recipes to give a creamy consistency or to thicken your dishes. Here you have the easiest way to start using them, just combining them with milk and chocolate (and adjusting quantities to get the consistency of your choice).
You can also use this recipe as a ganache or filling in other cakes, and you can experiment and make your own creations! For example, you can replace butter with riped avocados in traditional recipes (using half the amount of butter for mashed avocado), and enjoy the result!
It would be healthier and you would not notice the taste.
Thanks to Broccoli People - who brought you The Food Wisdom Ebook series to learn the fundamentals of nutrition - for this easy-make recipe.
