Chocolate Velvet

This recipe is to die live for . I mean who would ever think avocados could taste so good?

I know in the raw food community avocados are used instead of cream and dairy i.e: butter to make things smoothe . I personally love avocados just the way they are but add raw cacao and you get chocolate velvet :)

My boyfriend does not like avocados (I don't know why) but shhhh don't tell him .

1 ripe avocado
6 tablespoons unsweetened raw cocoa powder
1/4 cup agave syrup, maple syrup, or other liquid sweetener
2 tablespoons evaporated cane juice, optional
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons plus 1/2 cup purified water

1. Combine the avocado, cocoa powder, agave syrup, evaporated cane juice, 2 tablespoons of the water, and the vanilla extract and cinnamon in a food processor fitted with the S blade and process until smooth.
2. Add the remaining 1/2 cup of water and process again until well blended. The more water you add, the thinner the sauce will be.
