|"We love to nap but we really love to eat! How about you?"|
Avocados, one of the main ingredients in Chocomole Kisses, have a fermentation potential (FP) of 6. On the FP diet, one tries to stay between 20-30 total FP for the entire day! Foods are given an FP value, based on their net carbohydrates (total carbs minus fiber), fiber content, glycemic index and types of sugars they contain. The FP diet is designed to help individuals with IBS-like symptoms and small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO).
I avoided avocados during the first few weeks on the FP diet. I decided to reintroduce avocado in limited quantities because they contain so many nutritional benefits and have cooking versatility. I also am reintroducing in small quantities some of the foods I eliminated while on the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol, the past four months. These foods include chocolate and seeds and nuts (butters), also ingredients in Chocomole Kisses.
1/2 medium avocado (2.8 ounces)
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup sunbutter or almond butter (unsweetened)
2 T. softened coconut oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract (alcohol-free)
liquid stevia (no alcohol), to taste
Here's what you do:
Blend all the ingredients in your food processor until smooth and creamy. Drop the mixture by small teaspoon fulls onto a parchment-paper lined pan. If you really want to get fancy, use a pastry dough bag to make real chocolate kiss shapes. Place the kisses in the fridge to firm them up. Store in the freezer in a container and enjoy in small quantities for the FP diet.
