A sinfully decadent, yet guilt-free recipe to enjoy chocolate for breakfast

Every so often, I swap my standard Sunday morning breakfast of oats and fruit for a bowl of creamy chocolate avocado pudding. This is one of my favourite ways of enjoying avocado, and it is easy to see why.

Dark chocolate has that elusive combination of a complex bittersweet taste, which I swear, is enough of an incentive for me to find more ways of incorporating it in more recipes other than just chowing it down, piece by piece…although I would happily chow it down piece by piece until my pantry is empty..

The combination of the deep, bittersweet and complex flavours of raw cacao powder, the creamy decadence of whipped avocado, and the smoky heat of berbere is one which I am powerless to resist – true confession!

And speaking of Berbere, this is the secret ingredient in this recipe. I am talking about berbere that has been carefully mixed and blended so it delivers a deep, earthy and rich flavour with a hint of heat. My girlfriend Esete hand-delivered my current batch of berbere spice, ground by her mum in Ethiopia based on an age-old recipe. The result – a very vibrantly-coloured and intensely-flavoured spice which I have been enjoying with reckless abandon.

Raw Cacao powder is also loaded with antioxidants and ranks as one of the healthiest superfoods. Avocados are 75% fat, most of which are monounsaturated (the healthy fat), and contain oleic and linoleic acid which aid with stabilising blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Which means you end up with a breakfast that’s nutrient-dense and capable of keeping you feeling full for longer because of the high fat content. Now tell me please what’s not to love?
