CHOCOLATEY AVOCADO MOUSSE
Moms always ask us for treats they can feel good giving their kids and that they can eat without feeling guilty too! So here you have it– our guiltless healthy Chocolatey Avocado Mousse! The avocado is packed with more than 20 nutrients, good-for-you monounsaturated fats and is responsible for the oh-so-creamy texture, while the cocoa powder adds that rich and decadent chocolate sensation.
Chocolatey Avocado Mousse
¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 ripe avocado
¼ cup cocoa powder
¼ cup unsweetened almond milk, divided in half
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave with a microwave safe bowl in 15 second intervals, adding splashes of water as needed to keep the consistency smooth
Slice and peel the avocado and put into fruit processor or blender.
Add in the melted chocolate chips, cocoa powder, half of the almond milk and vanilla extract.
Blend ingredients together until smooth, adding in more almond milk if needed.
Pour the creamy rich mousse evenly into 6 mini muffin tins for you and your friends to enjoy now, or store in fridge for a cold but sweet treat later! Feel free to add some sliced strawberries or almonds on top!
