Can’t seem to get enough avocado or chocolate in your life? Then the UK-based chocolate company Love Cocoa may be your dream come true. The chocolatier has recently launched a vegan chocolate bar featuring avocado.
Love Cocoa is the brainchild of James Cadbury – yes, that Cadbury family (he’s the great-great-great grandson of Cadbury’s founder) – and he says his chocolate-centered upbringing had an impact.
“Growing up a Cadbury, I’ve always loved chocolate and experimenting in the kitchen,” Cadbury told the Independent. And he’s certainly experimenting in a healthy direction.
Vegan chocolate retains more of cacao’s naturally-occurring nutrients, and avocado is, well, avocado.
“And like the millions on Instagram, I’m also an avocado fan, so I thought why not mix two of the most loved flavours and foods together – and that’s how the avocado chocolate bar was born,” Cadbury said.
The bar uses freeze-dried avocado, which reportedly maintains the fatty fruit’s nutrients, and helps give it a creamy texture.
Not heading to the UK anytime soon? Don’t despair. There are plenty of vegan chocolate avocado recipes to keep you satisfied.
