We all get those sweet tooth cravings every once in a while. This recipe is an easy and healthy way to satisfy that craving with just a few ingredients. The star of this recipe is avocado. Avocados not only add creaminess, but they also provide numerous health benefits. Avocados are rich in multiple vitamins including thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin. These vitamins help our bodies convert food into energy to keep us going throughout the day (WebMD, n.d.). Cacao powder introduces healthy bacteria into our guts due to the high fiber content it possesses. Fiber is great for digestion and keeping our gut bacteria diverse (WebMD, n.d.). A healthy chocolate treat that’s good for the gut? I’m sold.
