Guilt-Free, Dairy-Free, Decadent Chocolate Mousse!

This recipe substitutes the dairy in a traditional mousse, with avocado.

Yes, avocado. A bit odd right? But avocado is creamy, smooth and not very strong in flavor. It gives mousse a rich, lush texture, and the cocoa in this recipe takes over- all you can taste is heaven.

The bonus: Avocados contain healthy fat (monounsaturated fat), and are packed with folate, vitamins E, C and B6, potassium and fiber. These are nutrients necessary for healthy brain/nerve function, and help give you glowing skin and shiny hair. Chocolate that makes you smarter and better looking- now thats what Im talking about.

  Ingredients (serves 1-2):

    1 large ripe avocado

    1/4 cup raw cocoa powder

    1/4 cup coconut milk or almond milk

    2 tsp natural sweetener

    1 tsp natural vanilla extract

    Optional extras: toasted sliced almonds, chia seeds, frozen mixed berries, almond butter, 

    cocoa nibs, coconut oil

            **Dust with espresso powder/instant coffee for little kick-in-the-pants

Directions:

Purée the avocado until smooth.

Mix together the cocoa powder and milk until combined and add to the avocado. 

Stir in the natural sweetener, vanilla extract, and any extra ingredients (toasted almonds add a lovely crunch, and frozen berries give the mousse a great fruity twang!) and mix well.

Transfer the mousse to individual bowls and store in the fridge until ready.
