Chocolate Avocado Hummus

Avocado and chocolate work so well together to give healthy desserts a really amazing taste and texture. Nobody will know there is avocado in this sweet chocolate dessert unless you tell them it’s there. If making this chocolate hummus for someone skeptical, just don’t tell them of the avocados existence and they won’t know.

The best part of this recipe is that there is no added sugar. The sugar content is found mainly from the cocoa powder and dates although using cacao powder will lower the overall sugar content.

You may be wondering (as was I) what you’d use chocolate avocado hummus for? Your could use it as frosting on cupcakes or cookies, and it’s especially good as a dip for fruits such as apple slices, strawberries, or pineapple chunks. You could also spread it on all sorts of breads or crackers. The options are only limited by your imagination.

3 Tbsp Ground Sesame Seeds
1 cup Dates
4 Tbsp Cocoa Powder (or 3 1/2 Tbsp Cacao Powder)
1 tsp Vanilla
3 Tbsp Coconut Cream

Place everything into a food processer.
Blend for 1-2 mins until all combined and add more water if the chocolate avocado hummus is too thick.

Enjoy within 2-3 days and store in the fridge.


Use pre-ground sesame seeds, don’t put in whole sesame seeds as they won’t be broken up in a food processor.

Adjust the sweetener amount to suit your tastes (in this recipe, the sweetener is the Dates).
