Chocolate Avocado Mousse


Looking for a dessert that doesn't leave you feeling riddled with guilt? If you're new to this avocado spin on traditional mousse, the sound of avocado as the main ingredient may make you say, "euw." Don't worry, I understand. I was a little skeptical at first too.

But you're in for a major surprise -- it tastes nothing like avocado. If you're vegan or looking to reduce dairy from your diet, this is perfect. Swap out the dairy for heart-healthy avocado and enjoy this delicious treat!

Ingredients:

1 large ripe avocado
1/4 cup almond milk
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
Pinch of sea salt
Optional toppings: assorted fruit, coconut flakes, whipped cream (or vegan whipped cream)

Directions: In a blender add the almond milk, avocado, cocoa powder, honey, vanilla and salt. Blend for two minutes until smooth. Add to serving dishes and chill in the refrigerator for a minimum of 20 minutes. Then add toppings of choice (or have it plain) before serving.

Enjoy!
