Meals That Heal - Chocolate Avocado Fudge

Although avocado is unusually high in fats, it has no cholesterol and is an excellent choice for those wanting to lose weight. Avocado can be a very satisfying replacement for butter, cheese, and even creamy desserts, moderating your appetite for these less-healthy foods. Plus, it provides the healthy fats your body needs, essential Omega 3’s and 6’s which are necessary for a healthy metabolism. This buttery green fruit is also packed with vitamins, minerals and even complete proteins.


  • 3 oz bittersweet or dark chocolate (70 percent cocoa or higher), chopped
  • 1 large avocado, pitted and pureed
  • cup organic full-fat coconut milk (canned)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon Stevia to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon Raw pistachios (or other nuts), chopped 


  • Line an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with parchment paper, allowing the excess to hang over the sides. 
  • Heat all ingredients except pistachios in a medium glass bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water (making sure bowl doesn’t touch water), stirring until chocolate has completely melted and mixture is smooth. 
  • Add nuts, and stir to incorporate. 
  • Scrape mixture into prepared pan, using a spatula to smooth the top. 
  • Refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours and preferably overnight. (The longer it chills, the firmer it gets, but this is still soft fudge.) 
  • Use parchment paper to lift fudge out of pan and to a cutting board. Peel off parchment paper and cut into 1-inch pieces. Store refrigerated in an airtight container.
