Spring break food: Avocado Chocolate Moose

Alyssa, Will and I decided to go up the lake this week. It is spring break and meant to be a yoga retreat, but but that fell through. Oh well, We had a great time checking out Mabel Falls and Granite Shoals anyway (Right off lake LBJ). How could we not enjoy it? Just take a look at the view!

Since we are all relativally broke and I am vegan (If you didn't figure it out Texas isn't exactly the place for road side vegan) we had the chance to try a lot of new Recipies that I have been meaning to tinker with.

This is the first one. I'm not really a huge desert person but this was something that everyone seemed to like!

3 Hass Alvacodos (2 cups when massed up.)
1/4 cup of raw agave nectar
1/4 plus 2 Tablespoons of raw cocoa powder
3 tablespoons of vegan butter
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
Pinch of cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
Pinch of salt (if you need to mellow out the sweetness)
3 ice cubes

Puree all of the ingredients together in a food processor until they have no chunks. If you don't mind it not being "Live" place in fridge for and hour before serving. As for the Picture....I swear he really did like it (He's actually been nagging me to make it again) he just very much zones out when he eats!
