Happy Friday! It is time for a fiesta! … of sorts.
Recently I attended a blogging conference- yes there is such a thing. Anyway, it was my first and I am hopeful that there will be a second. If you are into blogging and have the opportunity to go, I recommend it. I attended the Evo ’12 conference in Park City, UT. Even if you are not able to go to the conference, but still visit Park City- I recommend that too!
Anyway, while I was at the conference I attended a dinner sponsored by the California Avocado Commission. Oh my delightful… and adventurous. But that is another story. While we were they we experimented with all kinds of ingredients to make the best guacamole and now would like to share all the ideas with you. The original recipe for our group is also located in the link below.
As much as I love guacamole and loved the dinner, I needed to find a way to tie this in to chocolate. . .
Never fear, there is the internet ever present for inspiration. After a few minutes browsing and a shopping list, here is what I came up with.
Berry Good Chocolado
3 Tablespoons Agave
3 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 cup Raspberries
Using a hand mixer, blend avocado, agave, cocoa powder and vanilla in a bowl. Mix in raspberries last either by hand or for a short period with the mixer. The raspberries should still be chunky. Chill overnight.
I loved this. Eat it with pitas, fruit or just dig in with a spoon. My husband was not so fond of it. One thing for sure though is that the avocados add a healthy cream texture while the raspberries compliment it with a sweet and fruity bliss.

Do you guys have any good recipes that use avocado?
Yay for Friday!
