Dr. Jockers Comments

This is a fantastic dessert recipe that is low-carb, ketogenic and fat burning.  The combination of avocado and dark chocolate provides healthy fats, fiber, and anti-oxidants to help the body produce good hormones that optimize your metabolism.

Stevia is our favorite natural sweetener because it is one hundred times sweeter than sugar and has no effect on blood sugar.  Adding in the cinnamon gives a unique cinnamon flavor and adds in more anti-oxidants that support blood sugar signaling patterns.

This recipe is very easy to make, and your family will absolutely LOVE it and be requesting this often!  Perfect for birthdays, special events and gatherings!  Let us know how you enjoyed the recipe in the comments box below!
