3 ripe avocados
3 tbsp coconut cream
2 drops pure peppermint essence
1 tbsp melted coconut oil
1⁄2 cup rice syrup
1 tsp spirulina powder
Pinch Himalayan salt
1⁄2 tsp vanilla essence
1⁄2 cup cacao nibs
Place a can of coconut cream in the fridge overnight to allow the coconut liquid to separate from the cream. Scoop the thick coconut layer off the top & place in a blender.
Cut the avocado in half & remove its pit. Scoop the flesh into your blender & proceed to place remaining ingredients into the blender, aside from cacao nibs & mix until you reach a smooth consistency.
Fold cacao nibs through the mix and pour into a small lined loaf tin.
Set in the freezer for 4 hours.
