Throw the almond milk, maple syrup (or birch xylitol and stevia), cacao powder, almond butter, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt into your high-speed blender, and blast on high for 30 to 60 seconds until well combined.
Add the avocado, secure the lid, remove the center lid cap, and insert the tamper. Process on high for 20 to 30 seconds using the tamper to guide the ingredients through the blades. (You may need to stop the machine and scrape down the sides of the container) until smooth and creamy.
Serve with ice cream or cashew cream, fresh fruit, and crushed nuts. (See post for suggestions.)
