Made with JOI Almond base, the creamy base helps bind this dessert together. In a small blender cup or a mixing bowl with a hand mixer these few ingredients just take 1 minute of mixing to transform before your eyes. Would you even believe that these aren’t just dairy free..they are HEALTHY! 

Avocado, cocoa powder, agave syrup or honey, JOI Almond Base and a little water blend wonderfully into this smooth and rich treat. You can eat it right out of the blender cup, but may we suggest giving it a chill? Chill it down in the refrigerator then top with fresh berries for a sweet summer treat.
