I’m no vegan. Let’s get that straight. But I do have an official policy when it comes to deliciousness. It doesn’t matter what category it falls into, I am there baby!
I was playing around with some flavours for my new cookbook, which we are smack bang in the middle of creating just now. And this is one of the rejects. (Shhh, the recipe has no idea it’s a reject!) Aren’t you just glad there are rejects as good as this now and again? I simply cannot fit it into the already bursting pages of what is coming at you before the end of this year, I hope.
But I digress, so vegan, not vegan, paleo, GAPS, bloodgroup diet, diabetic, filled with sugar or no sugar, if it tastes great, I am happy to eat it. And this is great. But a word to the wise, I had no idea how frozen avocado gets. I mean really, frozen is frozen isn’t it? But those avo’s were like rocks, so lay the avocado flat when freezing for easier breaking to blend.
Enjoy...oh and the chocolate needs to be above 70% to make the strict vegan in you happy.
BENEFITS: the benefits of peppermint oil are many, ironically one of which is appetite suppressant...so you'll make this recipe and want to eat less of it! It is known to boost energy, prevent allergies, relieve headaches and we all know it is widely used in oral care.
