Avocado Chocolate Mousse
This is amazing, delicious and so healthy.
You can make and serve it anyway you’d like it too – coconut cream on the bottom or the top, whatever fruit you have on hand, all that jazz. Or just the deeeelish chocolate fluff. Make it your own!
If you’ve never tried avocado chocolate mousse before, this healthy recipe will take you completely by surprise!
It is rich and silky smooth… and you really can’t taste the avocado.
The best part about this avocado chocolate mousse is that it tastes so decadent and so sinful that you completely forget you’re getting so many health benefits at the same time!
Avocados are 100% cholesterol-free, contribute nearly 20 vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients; and just one serving of the superfood offers eight percent of the daily value of fiber—a nutrient which provides a feeling of fullness and has also been found to potentially reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.
With less than one gram of sugar per ounce, avocados have the least amount of sugar per serving of any fruit, and they act as a “nutrient booster” by helping the body to better absorb fat-soluble nutrients.
flesh of 2 ripe avocados (240g)
1/4 cup regular cocoa powder
1/4 cup dutch cocoa OR melted chocolate chips
3-4 tbsp milk of choice
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
sweetener of choice to taste (I like 1/4 cup pure maple syrup)
**You have two options for this recipe: The version with the chocolate chips will be richer; the version with the dutch cocoa (important to use dutch) will be lower in fat and sugar.Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor until completely smooth. (Watch the video above to see the recipe being made step-by-step.) I used 3 tbsp almond milk, but if you’re not using a liquid sweetener then you might want to add a little extra for a smoother consistency.
