This Dairy-free Chocolate Avocado Dip with Fruit is the perfect dish for summer picnics or your next potluck gathering. It is as nutritious as it is delicious.  It is easy to make and is a crowd pleaser. Kids love it, too!

Serve with fresh fruit.  Makes a party platter for 6-8 people.

  • 2 large ripe avocados (soft but not mushy)
  • ½ cup real maple syrup
  • ⅔ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ Tbsp real vanilla extract
  • 3 Tbsp almond milk (or other plant-based milk)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Strawberries, bananas, and apples, for dipping
  1. Cut the avocado in half lengthwise. Remove the pit.  Scoop the flesh of the avocado out of the skin with a large spoon. Put it onto a cutting board and mash the avocado with a fork to soften.
  2. Add the avocado mash to a blender or food processor. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. If you prefer it to be slightly thinner, add a bit more of the plant-based milk.
  3. Wash and slice your fruit into bite size chunks. When serving for a party, I like to keep a small piece of the banana peel on each piece to serve as a natural spoon.
  4. Put the chocolate avocado dip into a bowl surrounded by your prepared fruit and garnish with a sprig of mint.  Enjoy!
