Dark and Decadent Chocolate Torte


  • ½ cup (115g) packed Avocado Puree
  • 1 tsp (5ml) pure Vanilla Extract
  • Pinch of fine Sea Salt
  • 9 ounces (255g) good quality Dark Chocolate (70% cocoa is best) chopped
  • ¼ cup (60ml) freshly squeezed Orange Juice or pulp free orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp (15ml) Pure Maple Syrup


1. Line a mini loaf pan with plastic wrap and set aside.

2. In the bowl of a food processor, whip the avocado puree, vanilla and salt. Set aside while you melt the chocolate.

3. In a heavy-bottomed pot set over the lowest heat possible, combine the chocolate, orange juice and maple syrup. Stir constantly until melted and smooth, about 5 minutes.

4. Immediately scrape the chocolate mixture into the food processor with the avocado, and blend again until perfectly smooth and glossy. Turn the mixture into the loaf pan and smooth the top.

5. Refrigerate uncovered until the top is firm and dry,  then cover the top with more plastic wrap and refrigerate until the entire loaf is firm, 4-6 hours or overnight.

6. To unmold, remove the plastic from the top of the loaf. Invert over a serving dish and remove from the loaf pan, then carefully peel away the plastic. Serve in thin slices with fresh raspberries or berries.


Makes 4-6 servings.

May be frozen; defrost, wrapped in plastic, in the refrigerator overnight.
