Chocolate Espresso Hazelnut Frozen Torte

Did I really say that? Chocolate espresso hazelnut frozen torte? Yes, I did. And you are going to love this one. It is pretty easy to put together if you make the hazelnut butter in advance. And since there are avocados in the filling in stead of coconut oil and cashews, you are going to get a little lighter tort that has a healthier nutrition profile.

Don’t get me wrong, this is a dessert and should be treated as such. It does contain fat. But at least you can gain some comfort that you are not eating empty calories. Cacao is full of fiber, magnesium and antioxidants. Avocados are full of healthy fat, fiber, vitamins and minerals and they have protein! A little goes a long way with this torte so keep those slices small if you are worried about your waistline.

Enjoy this chocolate torte. It’s a tasty one!

Espresso Powder

I am using some espresso powder in this recipe. It is optional. If you are a purist, you can eliminate it, But it adds a beautiful depth of flavor to the tort. So depending on your preferences, you make the call. I love healthy recipes but I also love what a little bit of flavor can do to a recipe.

    Hi, looks amazing. Was just wondering if you could tell me the exact dimensions of this Torte (height, diameter, what size inch tin you used, etc) and also how thick in cm the hazelnut filling is? It would be very much appreciated as I think it’s a lovely recipe and would like to incorporate recipes similar but not identical to the base and filling into a Torte I’m making for an assessment at Uni.

      Hi, Kristina,

      There is a link to the spring form pan I used in the recipe. I am not sure exactly how tall it was or how thick in cm the filling was. Cheers!

    Thank you for your passion! These recipes are fantastic and the way they are presented is quite simply the best I’ve encountered in the world of raw food. You’ve certainly mastered the art of food and the sharing of it- if it wasn’t for this website we would never know the real joy of sharing amazing cake, among other things. I don’t like to gush, but it’s about time I gave what I can of my gratitude, until the day when I can afford to buy all your books. Thanks Susan, you powerhouse of gloriously good food.

    Wow this is so easy to make and so delicious. Loved it and my kids also loved it especially
    the middle layer. The only problem was the base it wasnt moist enough so didn’t stick together.
    I think next time might need a few more dates. There will definately be a next time.

      Thanks, Marama, Next time if your crust is a little dry, you can always add a little water, too. There are always variants. Cheers!

    Oh wow, this look so so good!!
    I love hazelnut, and I love chocolate. Mixing the both is just the best thing ever.
