“When I eat chocolate, I go over to the dark side—and by that I mean the place where rich, raw, organic cacao turns into decadent pudding. If you like dark, bittersweet flavors, this dessert may be right up your alley. If you’re a milk-chocolate lover, serve it with cream, berries, and chopped almonds to cut the bitterness and balance every bite. This pudding is best consumed the day it’s made, as the avocados will oxidize and the flavors will change over time. This pudding works best with ripe avocados that don’t have any brown discolorations. Overripe or bruised avocados detract from the taste.”
Blend, freeze, slice, and scarf. That’s how easy this cake is! We love this new plant-based cheesecake recipe by Tess Masters in her new cookbook.

Add the lemon and poppy seeds for an awesome twist and a drizzle of strawberry sauce to up the indulgence.
