Healthy Chocolate Fondue Recipe Kids Will Love & Parents Can Feel Good About! {Guest Post}

Guest post written by Jenna aka Sweet Pea from the Newlyweds blog.

My 2 year old twin boys love any foods that requires dipping. The usual like chips and salsa, carrots and ranch, chicken dipped into ketchup; it doesn’t matter, they just can’t get enough. So in efforts to provide a slightly healthier and fun way to get them to eat their fruits and veggies, I made a Chocolate Fondue with a few secret ingredients; avocados and carrots.

I know you thinking, this chic is crazy that sounds disgusting. But please believe me when I say you can’t taste them, all you get is a wonderful chocolaty dipping sauce.

Now please bare with me there are a couple steps to this process, but once you’ve made it, and feed your hungry crowd chocolate you won’t feel the slightest bit guilty.

Let me walk you through the process.

You will need: 1 Tablespoon butter, 1/2 cup avocado puree, 1/4 cup carrot puree, 1 cup powdered sugar, 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 tsp vanilla extract, and a variety of fresh fruits.

The first step is preparing the puree’s. In a microwavable lidded dish add carrots with a splash of water. Cook them until tender, about 5 minutes.

then pureed them in a food processor or blender adding a little water if needed for a smoother consistency.

I made more than I needed, so I put the leftovers in ice trays to freeze, and save to make this again, or to make carrot cake.

The avocado’s, just peel, de seed and puree in a food processor or blender and set aside.

If you make more than needed like I did, add a little salt, maybe some chopped tomato (or salsa) and have guacamole dip.

To make the fondue, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a medium sized saucepan over low heat.

Then add in the pureed avacodo

pureed carrots

powdered sugar

cocoa

and vanilla.

Whisk until all the ingredients are incorporated.

That’s it, ready to eat. And best served warm.

I served with apples slices, graham crackers, and strawberries.

*cherries, blackberries, bananas, and pears would also be excellent.

Let your kiddos dig in.

if yours are anything like mine, they might get a little messy.

Boy did they ever!

  1. I love this dip! I like sneaking healthy purees, etc., into foods – this is a good one and I bet it makes it that much tastier, too!

  1. Do you know why I'm excited about this recipe? Because i'm going to be doing fondue for my next book club party and we have a vegan….this recipe is vegan friendly! 🙂

    Thanks! I just hope it tastes as good as it looks.

  2. MnC- I promise it tastes wonderfully chocolaty. Best served warm and your adult quest will love it.

  3. It looks delish but is there any way to get it smoother like traditional chocolate? I think I could use it in a lot of different applications if I could get a smoother consistency.

  4. Ok I saw this in my email reader and just had to comment. I am going to have to try this! Thank you!

  5. Jennifer- yes you could get it smoother if you process the carrots and avocados really fine. I think a blender would do a better job them a food processor.

  6. This looks great for adults too! 😛
