      Don’t tell the kids, and they won’t even know! Avocado is a great substitute for butter and oil as well. I will us it in cakes, frostings, pancakes… you name it! Enjoy!

  • Hm, you use almond milk. I’ve made it twice. First time, me & kids liked it, hubby thought it was too avocado. Second time, only my daughter liked it. The difference was avocado type (Haas were milder) and the brand of cocoa powder. Chatfields was better than Dagoda. But I’ll check out some of these!
