CLEAN AVOCADO-CHOCOLATE CAKE (PALEO, NO DAIRY, GLUTEN-FREE)

Oh hello there. Have I been neglecting you? Have you been wanting to try out this amazing cake here but I have just postponed and postponed sharing the recipe? Oh dear. Without further ado...HERE IS AN AWESOME CAKE:


Drooling yet? Or is the green putting you off?
I am no longer scared of greens in my food, but if you still are, then just add a tsp or two of cacao powder to the green mix and..it will become brown..and everyone shall be fooled.

In all honesty, I had way too many slices of this last night..And really had to hold myself back not to actually eat the whole thing. SOMEHOW I am the only person insane about sweets in my fam. I can literally live off sweets, I do not need anything else. 
And I am drooling all over the place.
I want to just take a spoon.
Get comfy.
And eat the entire thing. All by myself. In one night.
P-l-e-a-s-e.
Oh people, who can eat whatever they want, without anything happening..I salute you! Please, on my behalf and everyone else's who only dreams of this..Go nuts!


Okay enough nonsense.

YOU WILL NEED:

FOR THE CAKE:
2 avocados
50 g coconut oil
1 very ripe banana (or honey, according to taste)
4 eggs
50 g almond flour (I grind my almonds myself)
25 g poppy seeds
100 g coconut flour (same drill)
2 tsp baking soda
salt
2 tbsp juice of lemon

FOR THE CREAMY AVOCADO LAYER:
1 avocado
ca 150 g of honey
3 tbsp juice of lemon

FOR THE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE:
3 ripe avocados
120g of raw cacao powder
85-100g of honey
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp of coconut milk (optional - if you want a thicker consistency then add only this much, if you want a more liquidy one - add more) 

*OR

1-2 ripe avocados
50g of raw cacao powder
a handful of dates
1 tbsp honey
2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
2-3 tbsp coconut milk

 *Spicey, eh? You can choose which one you want to make. Or go down a third road for all I care. 

HOW TO:

CAKE:
  • Whisk the coconut oil and banana. Then whisk in the egg yolks one by one. 
  • Puree the avocados with juice of lemon and add to the mix.
  • Mix together the dry ingredients and add to the mix.
  • Whisk the egg whites into a thick foam and gently...add to the mix of course!
  • Bake at about 170C, for approximately 50 minutes, but do go and start checking starting from minute 30.
 CREAMY AVOCADO LAYER:
  • Whisk all the above-mentioned ingredients together. 
 CHOCOLATE MOUSSE:
  • Cut the avocados in half, remove the seeds, and place into a bowl.
  • Add cacao powder, honey, vanilla extract and salt.
  • Mix everything together.
  • Use a blender or food processor to blend everything together. Add milk if you wish. 
SO!
To sum up, after your cake is done, let it cool for a while. Then cut it in half, like you would your jolly old proper granny cake. Then add the Creamy Avocado Layer on one slice and place the other on top of it. And add the best part ever: THE CHOCOLATE.

Sprinkle some coconut flakes and whatever you wish on top..and if you do not so wish..then do not!

ENJOY!
Eating clean has never been this easy!

PS! It is NOT healthy if you eat it all! :-D

Much Love,

Your Eileen
