I got this recipe at a class I am taking at Whole Foods. Make sure the family does not see you making it - they will never guess it is healthy. It is really tasty. We estimated 8 1/2-cup servings, but be prepared to be asked for seconds. Prep time does not include chilling time.
- In a blender, pour the hot water over the dates and let them stand 10-15 minutes or so to soften. (you can use a hot non-dairy milk, but it tasted just great using only water).
- After they have soaked, add the flesh of the avocado and all remaining ingredients. Blend on high, scraping down sides as necessary, until smooth.
- You can eat it warm, but it tastes best if you can refrigerate it for 2 to 3 hours in an airtight container. Nice with raspberries on top. You can also freeze to make fudgiscles, we were told.
