It was Saturday night and I was on home-turf. The menu was up to me.
It started with cumin carrots over mixed greens with sunflower seeds, progressed to halibut over a citrus salad and culminated in a cacao, coconut & avocado pudding.
The dessert rocked. The avocado gave the pudding a deep creamy texture and replaced the need for dairy. I could have added a banana or even silken tofu to make it more velvety but neither was necessary. The raw cacao powder provided an intense chocolate flavor and paired with coconut sugar (very low GI) and coconut milk it just melted in your mouth. Adding some cayenne pepper or chili gave it a spicy but subtle bite.
