You know what that means. Spikes in temperature. Kids running around the neighborhood like crazy.

Insane increase on your electric bill because you have to pump the AC in order not to melt. You know, normal summer stuff.

SO, it’s about time for a cool dessert to refresh our palates with, am I right?

Now, before you all scream at me for bringing a dessert into your lives in the middle of swimsuit season, let’s all take a deeeeeeep breath. Not only is this dessert vegan-friendly, it’s HEALTHY.

That’s because the crust isn’t a traditional crust with tons of shortening or butter. The filling is also light because of the avocado being used to get that creamy chocolaty goodness.

It always amazes me how easy it is to use avocado as a healthy substitute for desserts in addition to using it for a healthier fat option for savory dishes.

You would think the flavor of the avocado would overpower the flavors in the recipe, but it honestly doesn’t.

You get all the creaminess of the avocado in this dish, but the flavors of chocolate, spice and a slight sweetness, instead of the actual avocado flavor.

Not to mention, it’s an incredibly easy dish to make. Most of the time spent making this dish is actually passive time, waiting for something to bake or chill.

You will spend about 15 minutes of actually active prep time for the recipe, making it simple and easy to serve up for a party or whatever gathering you have planned.

Plus, you can make it up to three days ahead of time! Simply store it in the refrigerator covered with foil until you are ready to serve.

Stay cool, my friends!

  • 0.5 Unsweetened Coconut Flakes raw
  • 1 Almond Flour
  • 0.5 Coconut Flour
  • 2 Pure Maple Syrup grade A
  • 2 Coconut Oil melted, plus more for pan
  • Salt
  • 2 Avocado medium, peeled, pitted and carved into large chunks
  • 0.75 Ground Cayenne Pepper
  • 0.5 Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 0.75 Agave Nectar
  • 2 Coconut Oil melted
  • 1 Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 0.5 Pure Almond Extract


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Brush a 10-inch rectangular baking pan with coconut oil. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a food processor, combine coconut flakes, flours, and salt. Pulse until the mixture is in medium-sized crumbs.
  • Add maple syrup and coconut oil. Pulse for about 30 seconds until the mixture is like wet sand.
  • Dump the crust mixture into the pan. Gently spread the crust to make an even layer on the bottom and up the sides of the pan. Press the crust down firmly.
  • Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, until the crust is golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and cool completely. You can place the pan in the freezer for approximately 10 to 15 minutes to cool it down faster.
  • Clean out the food processor and add all ingredients for the spicy chocolate filling.
  • Blend until the mixture is smooth, approximately 2 minutes. You can also do this in a high-powered blender, if desired.
  • Add chocolate filling on the cooled crust and spread in an even layer. Cool in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Sprinkle with a little more cayenne pepper before serving.
