Chocolate Avocado Toast

I am a big fan of avocados. I bet you didn't know that an avocado is actually a fruit. Don’t feel bad, I though it was a nut. I like to eat them different ways. I will eat them in guacamole as a side dish to Mexican food or topped on a salad. One of my favorite breakfast items is avocado toast. I put an egg on a piece of toast then top with slices of avocado. This is what my breakfast can look like.


There are many health benefits in this plant food. While it is high in calories, its is low in carbs and saturated fats. Avocados are rich in fiber, and have no sodium making it a great choice in a weight loss diet. Half of an avocado has about 160 calories and a normal serving is 1/4 to 1/2 of an avocado. As long as you watch portion size, you are ok. Avocado will give you a full feeling which helps control snacking between meals. 
Avocados are full of vitamin A, E, K, B6 and Potassium. They have more potassium than a banana. 

With all that being said, I have tried to include avocados in a couple meals each week. It boost immune system and promotes healthy skin. 

Ok enough with the benefits of this fruit. Let me tell you about the new way I found to make avocado toast. Chocolate avocado. Yes you read that right. Chocolate! Now I win all the way around!


I mean, who doesn't like chocolate? Right? Ok, I sense some of your noses snarling up in eww. Well, let me tell you, this is actually good. It has just the right sweetness I need to get my morning started. It taste a lot like chocolate pudding. Who would have thought you can make a sweet chocolate concoction with a fruit? Come on give it a try.

Chocolate Avocado Toast


1/2 avocado 
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
2 teaspoon maple syrup or honey (I mix mine).
Mix well and spread on toast and top with fruit (optional).


Though Nick said it looked like poop on toast, he decided to taste it anyway. He didn’t say much, but I think he liked it. I will be making this again.
