I have become very good at hiding avocados in food as my son is not keen on them. I am pleased to say my daughter who is 9 has come back round to loving them. She was a huge fan when she was a baby. This raw peppermint slice was created to enable me to get more wholesome goodness into the kids and them see it as a treat food.
It is a smooth chocolate layer all homemade of course covering a soft chewy mint bottom and full of omega 6 and potassium and it is green in colour without needing to use any colouring (not that we do use colours in this house!).
