Tis’ the season for holiday parties with lots of snacking on sweets and things you normally probably wouldn’t eat. The good news is you can indulge in desserts that are healthier and not full of refined sugar, white flour and bad fats. Over the next few weeks I am going to be posting healthier alternatives that you can make for your holiday parties.
Here is a delicious treat that will impress your family and friends. Don’t even tell them at it’s raw vegan until after they are drooling over how good it is This is super easy to make too.
- 2 avocados, peeled and seeded

- ¾ cup water or vanilla low fat almond milk (add a ½ cup first and add more as needed
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Chill in fridge until ready to eat. Serve in a fancy glass and garnish with coconut flakes and strawberries or other fresh fruit.
