If you have a sweet tooth, but you tend to eat healthier, you will be happy to try the following avocado chocolate cake, as it is a mixture of countless health benefits and a delicious taste.
Avocados are among the healthiest fruits on the planet, rich in various nutrients, such as calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, manganese, sodium, phosphorus, and vitamins C, E, K, B6, B9, B1, B5, and B2. Moreover, they are high in potassium than bananas.
While we usually add these fruits to sandwiches, dips, and salads, in most countries, these fruits are regularly used in desserts.
They are used in similar ways as coconuts and are often combined with raw cocoa, which improves their health benefits even more. The mild flavor, texture and creamy consistency of avocados make them excellent in treats such as chocolate mousse.
