Ingredients

  • MINT CREAM LAYER:
  • 1 avocado the less ripe, the less you will have any 'avocado' taste
  • 1/4 c. coconut oil melted
  • 1/8 t. salt
  • 1 t. mint extract
  • 2 T. maple syrup
  • 1 T. water
  • CHOCOLATE LAYER:
  • 1/4 c. cocoa powder
  • 1/4 c. coconut oil melted
  • 2 T. maple syrup
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1/2-3/4 t. mint extract start with 1/2 and add more if you like a minty-er taste

Instructions

  • A note before beginning: everything works much better if the ingredients are at ROOM TEMPERATURE. Coconut oil starts to harden when it gets cold, so you may end up with a chunky mess if you don't heed this. This is particularly important with the chocolate layer.
  • Lightly oil a 7 x 5 inch dish (or a glass dish of similar size).
  • Process the ingredients for the mint cream layer until the mixture is very smooth.
  • Pour the mixture into the oiled glass dish.
  • Stir together the ingredients for the chocolate layer.
  • Once the mint cream layer has hardened (about 20-ish minutes), pour the chocolate layer atop it.
  • Place the container back into the freezer (with a fitted lid, if possible) and allow it to harden completely.
  • Cut into small squares and enjoy!
