Print Add Add To My Grocery List


1 cup baked sweet potato, peeled
1/2 cup frozen cherries
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup natural cocoa powder
6 regular dates or 3 Medjool dates
1 cup whipped aquafaba (see note)


Blend potato, cherries, blueberries, cocoa powder and dates in a high-powered blender until smooth and creamy. Transfer to a bowl and gently fold in whipped aquafaba.

Note: To make whipped aquafaba, use a hand beater or stand mixer to whip together 3/4 cup chickpea liquid (liquid from a 15 ounce can) and 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar. Whip for 5 minutes or until mixture forms stiff peaks. (This will yield more than one cup. Leftover whipped aquafaba will keep overnight in the refrigerator if you want to use it for another recipe)

Thank you very much. Could you please clarify what is whipped aquafaba? A can of what do you need to use?

Where do you get cream of tartar?

Cream of tartar is available at most grocery stores with their other spices.

This recipe worked out wonderfully and tastes awesome.  It has that bitter-sweet taste that I've always loved in dark chocolate back in the day when I use to eat gourmet dark chocolate bars.  It's hard to believe how healthy it is!  I served it for dessert on Thanksgiving, and it was the rave of the dinner.  :)
