I know what you are all thinking…

First we try to hide tofu in a burger, and now avocado in chocolate mousse?? What is this blog coming to?!?!

But let me tell you, the same husbands who typically scoff at tofu, will absolutely LOVE this mousse. It’s rich, it’s chocolatey, it’s creamy and buttery, when in fact, there is no chocolate, no cream, and no butter in sight. The intense cocoa powder and buttery avocado come together to create a decadent chocolate mousse you would be proud to serve to your pickiest dinner guest.

The addition of honey adds a subtle sweetness and the almond milk brings everything together. Feel free to sub maple syrup in place of the honey and your milk of choice in place of the almond. You can even spice it up with a hit of cayenne or cinnamon and top it with some toasted nuts or coconut.

DSC03529 Just trust me…have we failed you yet?? Don’t tell your husband, daughter, or friend the “secret ingredient” and watch as their faces light up after the first spoon full. Your traditional chocolate mousse gets a healthier, and if I do say so myself, tastier makeover!

  1. Can’t wait to try this one. Avocados have been 10 for $10 lately, so we are OD’ing on them. Now a new way to eat even more of them! LOL!
