Chocolate avocado tart: a hint of summer

The brilliant green leaves and fragrant blossoms inspire me to bring some refreshing sweetness into my life. Enjoy this simple, nourishing and delicious recipe!

Chocolate Avocado Tart
It's true! Avocados are fruits. They pair so well with chocolate. No wonder that both grow in tropical climates.

For the crust:
1 cup nuts (mix of almonds, pecans, walnuts)
handful of dried, pitted dates
pinch salt
1 Tablespoon coconut oil

Soak the dates in boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain and place in a food processor with nuts, salt and coconut oil. Blend and press into a pie dish.

For the filling:
In the same food processor (no need to wash it), place:
4 ripe avocados
1/4 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
a pinch each: salt and cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup maple syrup (or honey)
Blend well, pour over nut/date crust, and enjoy!

You can cover it with ripe berries and/or kiwi slices if you like.

This tart keeps well in the fridge for 5 days.
