Hot Chocolate Concrete ~ a Raw and Vegan Recipe



serves 2 ~ $1.90 per serving


ingredients
  • 4 bananas, sliced and frozen ($.80)
  • 2 cups almond milk ($.90)
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa or cacao powder ($.40)
  • 1 ripe avocado ($1.50)
  • 2 tablespoons agave ($.20)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • cacao nibs

This is super thick and rich ... and a little bit hot.

In a blender, puree the bananas, almond milk, cocoa powder, avocado, and cayenne until smooth and creamy. It will be quite thick. Spoon into glasses and top with some cacao nibs.

  3. Where does one get the nibs? What size and type of avocado? Does it have to be almond milk? (I dislike the taste and use soy milk.)

    1. Hi Kassie. I get my nibs from Natural Zing. Use any avocado you like ... a bigger avo will make it creamier. Use whatever milk you like :). I LOVE almond milk. I just really recommend it be made from organic almonds ...

  4. I wonder if, as this is thick, it could be used as a chocolate "pudding" for dessert?

    1. It's probably just a little thin to be pudding. Another avo would probably make it thick enough.

    1. Bananas go on sale locally for about $.29 a pound, sometimes even less. I stock up when they do and freeze the extras. They're also not organic.
