  2. Pour mixture into a bowl and chill until ready to serve. Top with fresh raspberries.

Chef Tips

When choosing avocados for this dessert, look for the smaller, Hass variety. The large, green, smooth-skinned Florida avocados don’t have a creamy enough texture for this dessert.

If you prefer, you can substitute the honey in this recipe for agave and use a plant milk to make this recipe vegan-friendly.

Use the best quality cocoa powder you can find. For an even more intense chocolate experience, add an extra 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder. Adjust the amount of sweetener you use to taste.
