For the next several days I will be posting about the World Congress of Families. This year it is being held in Sydney, Australia. Remember how we helped to raise funds for Angela to attend? She is sending daily reports of the presentations, interviews she is able to have, and more. I am excited to share with you what she is experiencing. There are so many around the world - politicians, religious leaders, community organizers, trained professionals, and others - who are dedicated to defending the family. I will try to post each day's events in order so you are not reading them backwards as you scroll down. I have broken up Angela's summaries into several posts so it isn't overwhelming to see a HUGE post. Remember, if you have any questions you would like her to ask when she gives her interviews, leave them in the comments and I will pass them along to her.
Chocolate Fruit Dip
My children love to eat fruit: apples, mangoes, strawberries, bananas, kiwis, pineapple, grapes, you name it! Once in a while for a treat we'll make this fruit dip to go along with our afternoon snack.
It is delicious, smooth, not too sweet, and even healthy! I had to include this to continue on with the theme lately of adding everyday ingredients in unexpected places.(Tangy Meatballs, Tomato Spice Cake)
Chocolate Fruit Dip
adapted from Chocolate Fondue in Deceptively Delicious
1 Tbsp. margarine or butter
1/2 cup avocado pureed smooth
1/4 cup carrot (cooked and pureed smooth, we actually use some of our frozen homemade baby food!)
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar (powdered sugar)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Melt butter over low heat in a medium saucepan. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk well until smooth. Serve warm or cold with fruit.
Make sure you puree the avocado and carrots really well. Little green chunks somehow don't make the dip as appealing. :D
