I made this on the weekend - it's super easy, and I didn't have a processor so I used a hand blender. I also altered the recipe a bit - instead of 10-12 tablespoons of cacao powder I used regular homebrand cocoa and only put about 3 tablespoons in as I thought it would have been too chocolately with 10-12! I also omitted the orange zest and put 5 tablespoons of agave nectar in - I reckon you could also use a couple of tblsp of honey. This was a fabulous treat and you wouldn't even know it has avo in it! We had it with strawberries and the only thing different I would do next time is leave some chunks of macadamia in the base. Soooo scrummy!
