Serves two.

Ingredients

  • 100g strawberries
  • 20ml balsamic vinegar
  • 20g icing sugar
  • 50g dates, pitted and chopped
  • 1 avocado, peeled, halved and chopped
  • 20g dark cocoa powder
  • 50g pistachio nuts, chopped
  • ¼ cup caster sugar (optional caramel decorations)

Method

  1. In a bowl combine the strawberries, balsamic vinegar, and icing sugar. Cover and store in the fridge for an hour to macerate.
  2. Soak dates in a bowl of warm water for 10 minutes, then drain and set aside to cool.
  3. In a blender puree the dates, avocado, and cocoa powder until smooth. Spoon into serving bowls and refrigerate to firm up.
