Raw Chocolate and Avocado Flan (WF, GF, DF, EF)


  • 15 Dates, soaked
  • 400g dried shredded Coconut
  • 25 Brazil nuts
  • 9 dried Figs
  • 1 espresso cup of Goji-berries-soaked
  • 2 Avocados
  • 1 small Banana
  • 4 Tablespoons of extra virgin Coconut oil
  • 4 Tablespoons of raw Cacao powder
  • 3 Tablespoons of unprocessed Honey
  • grated rind of 2 organic Citrus (such as oranges or Tangelos)
  • Juice of 1/2 Orange or Tangelo
  • 2-4 Tablespoons of Water
  • some drops of liquid Stevia extract if you like it sweeter (optional)
  • Round Tart pan with removable bottom, approximately 20cm diameter


  1. Crust:  Put the dates, brazil nuts and coconut in a food-processor until it is nicely mixed together and has a sticky consistency.
  2. Rub some coconut oil in a round tart pan with removable bottom and press crust evenly and firmly (approx. 1cm thick, 4-5cm up the sides of the tin). Place in the fridge to cool.
  3. Filling:  Place avocados, banana, gojis, figs, cacao powder, coconut oil, honey, juice and citrus rind (leaving a little for a garnish) in blender and process until smooth.  Add stevia if more sweetness is desired.
  4. Pour in to crust and spread smoothly, garnish with remaining citrus rind.  Place in the fridge for several hours to set.  Enjoy!!
  5. This variation has little chewy bits and seeds in the filling from the figs, gojis and citrus rind which is very nice, however, to achieve a smooth textured filling put these ingredients in the crust.

Second variation:

  1. Crust:  use the figs, coconut, brazil nuts, citrus rind and gojis, maybe add 1-2 Tablespoons of water to make spreadable, proceed as above recipe.
  2. Filling:  use dates, avocados, banana, cacao powder, coconut oil, honey and citrus juice in a blender and process until smooth.  Pour into crust as above.  

 Decorate with seasonal fresh fruit for a refreshing and delicious desert.  Enjoy!!
