Healthy Chocolate Mousse!

Happy Sunday! It also happens to be Valentine’s Day, which, for me, is an excuse to eat more chocolate, and I’m always looking for a reason to do that, so it’s great!

Dark chocolate tastes incredible and actually has many health benefits…

Avocados are also wonderful and can do really incredible things both IN (ingested) and ON (hair and skin) our bodies!

SO naturally, I wanted to combine my obsession (I take full responsibility for it) with both of these power foods and make some kind of delicious treat for Chocolate Consumption Day.

And starting with these….

I proceeded to make the most delicious and decadent chocolate mousse in 5 minutes.

Ingredients:

4 ripe avocados

1 cup raw cocoa powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup milk of choice (I used almond milk)

8 Tbs maple syrup

Combine all ingredients, blend them up in a food processor or blender and store in the fridge. Serving tip: The icing on THIS cake is when you top the mousse with cacao nibs and fresh raspberries!

NOTES: The less milk  you use, the thicker the mousse will be, the more you use, the thinner and creamer it will be. Chef’s choice! You may also need to adjust the sweetness according to your taste, and you can obviously sub a different kind of sweetener if you choose.

Go forth and be chocolate-full!

Peace, love and healthy fats,
