Avocado Alfredo? Yes, please!

This recipe was originally posted on  The Kind Life.

nwm9uGm7WhXGiPU3dE69KsIzAvocados are incredibly versatile and filled with good fats. They’re great in guacamole or cut up in salads, and they also make a great base for desserts and “cream” sauces. This recipe is a yum-looking veg take on Alfredo sauce, and a good option for those of you who prefer not to use soy-based dairy substitutes.

1/2 cup sifted cocoa powder

Lightly grease a 5×9-inch loaf pan using a little of the margarine (or an ultra-thin candy mold plastic tray best). Place the remaining margarine, sugar, cocoa, vanilla and soymilk in a heatproof mixing bowl or the upper part of a double boiler (We hold a small pot in a large pot of water).
