Avocado Chocolate Mousse Recipe!

One of my favorite memories from when I was a teenager was the fact that my momma would make us "avocado anything" shakes, mousse, ice-creams-you name it! It would always turn out delicious. 
Fast forward to now, I'm in my 30s and I still love Avocado treats! Here are some great nutritional facts if you are still on the fence about eating this delicious fruit:

One-third of a medium avocado (50 g) has 80 calories and contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, making it a great nutrient-dense food choice. The avocado is virtually the only fruit that contains heart-healthy monounsaturated fat–good fat! California Avocados are naturally sodium-, sugar- and cholesterol-free.

·        Avocado Is Incredibly Nutritious.
·        They Contain More Potassium Than Bananas.
·        Avocado Is Loaded with Heart-Healthy Monounsaturated Fatty Acids.
·        Avocados Are Loaded with Fiber.
·        Eating Avocados Can Lower Cholesterol and Triglyceride Levels.

Amazing right? Which it brings us to today’s post, this delicious guilt-free recipe:


This is a great alternative to traditional chocolate mousse.  The flavors are wonderful, and we promise you won't miss the dairy at all!  Plus, the avocado's make this a really healthy treat.  It's easy to make, and looks dramatic in small individual dishes, for a grand presentation.  This is one that will definitely go in your favorites!

2 large ripe avocados
1/4 cup of cocoa powder
3 Tablespoons of coconut or almond milk
3 Tablespoons of honey, or 1/3 cup of Stevia
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 banana
4 teaspoons of dairy-free chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups of red raspberries

In a food processor or blender, add the avocados, cocoa powder, coconut milk, Stevia, (or honey) vanilla, and banana, and blend until all ingredients are blended and smooth.  Scrape down sides of the container, and blend again, making sure all ingredients are blended.  Remove the blending container, cover, and place in the refrigerator for at least one hour, until completely cold, before serving.  Serve 1/3 cups of Mousse, topped with a sprinkling of chocolate chips, and raspberries.  Enjoy!
