This fudge recipe actually has some healthful components to it. Don’t feel guilty digging into this salty, sweet treat that is made rich thanks to avocado instead of butter.


  • 2 avocados
  • 3/4 Cups coconut oil
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla
  • 1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 Cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2-3/4 Cup agave nectar, more or less to taste
  • 1 Teaspoon Maldon salt


Blend all ingredients, minus the salt, in a blender or food processor. If your mixture separates in the blender, simply add a little water and it will combine again.

Spread into a baking dish and top with salt.

Refrigerate until hard and keep stored in fridge.

Chocolate Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.
