Vegan Avocado Chocolate Torte Recipe

I Did Not Know Avocado Could Make a Cake Taste THIS Good

Seriously, shout-out to avocado. There's nothing more impressive and deep than the adaptable avocado — it can be baked, frozen, added to smoothies, used as a dressing and subbed into desserts as butter — people should be more like 'em.

When I like a food I'll go all-in to bat for them (kale, remember?) and I'm really digging avos right now, particularly in cake form. So when this vegan avocado chocolate torte recipe landed in my inbox, and then very quickly into my stomach, I had to share. It looks and tastes like chocolate but it isn't, it's avocado (silly!) acting like chocolate and butter and dairy. It's the Leo DiCaprio of food and this recipe is its Oscar-winning performance.

Don't waste a single second, make it today!
