We were challenged by Philadelphia to create something that could be had at lunchtime, took little preparation and less than five minutes to make. So Mini and I put our heads together and decided to have a go at making a healthy ish chocolate pot.
Sometimes there are days when nothing but chocolate will do, so this is our way of getting a hit of chocolate, that is satisfying and filling at the same time. My biggest tip would be to make sure your avocado is ripe.
Healthy (ish) chocolate pots - cooking with kids
- Pot of Philadelphia
- An Avocado
- 2 tablespoons heaped of cocoa powder
- Teaspoon of vanilla extract
- Date syrup to taste
- Crushed or chopped hazelnuts
Blend the cream cheese, avocado, cocoa powder and vanilla extract to a smooth consistency.
Add date syrup to taste - Mini likes it sweet!
Top with crushed hazelnuts
This is a really simple recipe and really easy for children to make. Mini loves using the blender and it doesn’t work if the lid isn’t on correctly, so I know that he is using it safely.
Mini took his role in this make very seriously nad decided that he had to style the shoot in the garden and then take the pictures and then eat the chocolate pots! He did share one with Maxi though.
