INGREDIENTS FOR 2-3 SERVINGS

230 g ripe, fresh avocados, peeled and seeded (1 big avocado or two small)
130 g bittersweet dark chocolate, chopped
30 g caster sugar
1 lime

Melt the chocolate in a water bath with the sugar, and let it cool. Meanwhile, dice the avocado and sprinkle it with lime juice. Mix it in a bowl with basil leaves and a few slices of lime, and let it stand for 15 – 20 minutes.
Remove the lime and basil and blend the pulp of avocado with chocolate, combining gradually 5-6 tablespoons of plain water (or cream), until obtaining a smooth mixture.
Cover and chill until ready to serve (at least 1 hour ).
Make this look ultra fancy and garnish with fresh raspberries and shavings of dark chocolate.
