  1. Place lentils into a small pot with 1 cup (250 mL) water. Bring to a simmer and cook until lentils are tender, but have not broken down. Drain and rinse under cold water, shaking off extra moisture.
  2. Place lentils, avocados, coconut milk, sugar, cocoa, and vanilla into a food processor and puree until smooth in consistency. Scrape down sides and puree again until everything is incorporated.
  3. Portion into four small bowls, garnish with dried cherries or cranberries and serve.

Quick tip: For a chilled dessert, refrigerate for 2-4 hours before serving.


1/4 cup (60 mL) split red lentils

2 large ripe avocados

1/3 cup (75 mL) coconut milk

1/2 cup (125 mL) brown or cane sugar

3 Tbsp (45 mL) unsweetened cocoa powder

2 tsp (10 mL) vanilla extract

1/4 cup (60 mL) dried cherries or cranberries
