* 3 Hass avocados (2 cups mashed)

* 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbs. raw cocoa powder

Avocados give this luscious dessert its rich, creamy texture. “We always have fun with this recipe because we ask people to guess what’s in it,” says Murray. The key is to use avocados that are neither under ripe nor overripe, both of which have super strong avocado flavor.


Purée all ingredients in food processor 3 to 4 minutes, or until smooth and creamy, scraping down sides of bowl occasionally. Transfer to bowls, and serve immediately.
