This is a simple recipe, delicious and healthy. And for good reason, its low calorie content and its wealth of antioxidants, fiber and healthy fats. Its main ingredient is avocado, rich in nutrients, essential amino acids and oleic acid. This recipe also has the merit of not containing any dairy products, flour or sugar and associating sweet potato, coconut milk and cocoa which, like the avocado, are equally nutritious.
Let's review the benefits of the ingredients that compose it.
The consumption of avocado is recommended to improve the quality of its diet and provide the necessary nutrients to enjoy better health. It is therefore rich in fiber, vitamin K and E, potassium and magnesium. In addition, it contains an oil rich in monounsaturated fatty acids and its effect on weight control is similar to that of fruits and vegetables.

In addition, its lutein and zeaxanthin content makes this food associated with a minimal risk of cartilage defects and osteoarthritis. In addition, these two components would also contribute to the health of the eyes and the skin.
Due to its nutritional properties, sweet potato has been the subject of several researches. Thus, according to a study, it has an antioxidant effect, hepatoprotective, anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic, antimicrobial and anti-aging thanks to the proteins, lipids, carotenoids, anthocyanins and phenolic acids that compose it.
It would contain medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) that, in one study, would be associated with weight loss, while balancing the gut microbiota. It also has the advantage of boosting the immune system thanks to the lauric acid it contains.
