Dairy free chocolate sauce with tree sugar and a sexy vegetable

In case you didn't know, avocados are awesome. Now that we're avoiding dairy, avocados crop up everywhere to replace the creaminess of full fat dairy. Think about it, if you had to use one adjective to describe avocados, what would that adjective be? Creamy. No two ways about it.

Also, it's maple syrup season here in Canada and I got an awesome deal on something like a 4 year supply of maple syrup. Every can comes up to about $6 Canadian. If you don't feel like converting that, just trust me when I say that it's a great deal since here cans usually cost $9.

So here's a great, simple recipe for a versatile chocolate sauce.

Mix together 1 ripe avocado, 1/4 cup coco powder and 1/4 cup maple syrup. That's it. Now you can spread it on fruit, on toast (especially if you add a bit of hazelnut butter to the mix), on cupcakes, on your face and have your spouse lick it off. Go nuts! It only took like, what, 3 minutes to make?
