Avocado overdue? Make chocomole


We’ll see if this one flies with Team BRK. I’m not a big hide-odd-veggies-or-fruits-in-food kind of person but I had an avocado ready to go out on me and remembered Whole Food’s recipe, Chocomole. Basically an avocado blended with cocoa powder, maple syrup, vanilla, and a pinch of salt. But you definitely need the cinnamon to cover that avocado taste or else the Team will revolt! I added the espresso to enhance the chocolate flavor which doesn’t seem like a bad way to save an avocado’s life. Serve with fruit and enjoy. But really, don’t tell anyone, and hide the avocado peel so they don’t get suspicious.

Recipe type: Dip
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Adapted from Whole Foods Market
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder

What’s a weird veg or fruit you hide in foods to get your team to eat it?
