Chocolate Avocado Dip with Fresh Fruit Skewers
Chocolate avocado dip may look decadent, but it’s actually healthy! The avocado flavour fades away beneath the chocolate and gives this dip a thick and creamy consistency. It’s perfect for dipping fruit skewers into.

- 2 ripe avocados pitted and peeled
- 5 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder or raw cacao
- 1/2 cup (125g) milk (dairy or non-dairy)
- 4 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Small pinch of sea salt
For the fruit skewers
- 4 large handfuls of mixed fruit such as strawberries, grapes, mango, kiwi
- 6 skewers
Whiz the avocado, cocoa, milk, maple syrup, vanilla and salt in a blender or small food processor until smooth. If necessary, add a little extra milk to thin to a dipping consistency. Keep refrigerated until ready to eat.
Cut any large pieces of fruit into bite-sized pieces. Thread the fruit onto skewers and serve alongside the chocolate dip.
