INGREDIENTS

For the base:
1 1/2 cups Almonds
1 cup Oats
2-3 tbsp Date syrup or Brown Rice Syrup
2 tbsp Lucy Bee Coconut Oil, melted
1 tsp Vanilla Paste
Pinch Salt
For the filling:
2 medium to large ripe Avocados, pitted (I used Strong Roots frozen Avocado)
170g Dark Chocolate (at least 80% Cacao Solids) finely chopped
2 heaped tbsp Lucy Bee Coconut Oil
3 tbsp Dairy-Free Milk of choice (Almond, Coconut or other)
2-3 tbsp Maple Syrup
1-2 tbsp Rejuvenated Chocolate Protein Smoothie OR Cacao
1 tsp Vanilla Paste
Berries and Coconut Yoghurt to serve (optional)

METHOD

1. Start by making your base by blending together the almonds and oats until they form a fine flour. Tip into a bowl, then stir in the remaining ingredients, kneading with your hands, until it sticks together into a sort of dough. Press into the base of a springform tart tin (I used a 20cm tin). If it’s too dry, add a touch more coconut oil. Too sticky and some more oats will do! Place the tin in the fridge to firm up.

2. Next, make your filling by melting together the chocolate and coconut oil in a bain marie, stirring until smooth.

3. Place the avocados into a blender along with the milk, cacao, hazelnut butter, maple syrup, salt, vanilla and melted chocolate and blend until completely smooth, adding a splash more milk if needed and scraping down the sides as you go.

4. Stop to taste and adjust the sweetness or hazelnut / chocolate flavourings (adding more cacao, if needed, or slightly more yoghurt if it’s too rich for your taste) as necessary.

5. Spoon the smooth avocado filling over your base, then place back in the fridge to firm up, ideally overnight.

6. Serve topped with fresh berries or even coconut yoghurt and enjoy!
