Recent research has found that it is highly recommended to include this fruit as part of every day food. There are numerous ways to include this wonder fruit, in the every day diet like smoothies, shakes, ice cream, pies, guacamole and of course  pudding. Because of its neutral taste, it is very easy to include this silk smooth fruit in different dishes.



I am sure by now, you would have guessed what the secret ingredient is!!





Preparation Time - 10 Minutes

Ingredients





Avocado - 1 (Medium sized, ripe kept in refrigerator for at least a day)

Unsweetened cocoa powder - 1 Tbsp

Xylitol - 2 Tbsp or to taste

Vanilla extract - 1/2 Tsp





Method





1) Peel the avocado, remove the seed and place it in a food processor along with milk, cocoa powder, vanilla extract and xylitol.
