Avocado Chocolate Mousse

This avocado chocolate mousse is gluten-free, egg-free, dairy-free and vegan, and only contains 3 ingredients: Avocado, Cacao Powder and Dates.

Of course you can add nuts, fruit, and anything your taste buds desire, but this combination of healthy and delicious ingredients create a dense and rich mousse that will delight you, your family & friends, and even your kids!

Avocado has been called one of the world's most perfect foods and is a nutritional powerhouse with over a dozen health benefits, so you can enjoy this decadent treat while knowing that you are nourishing your body.

You can make it in a food processor or blender, eat it right away, chill it in the fridge, or freeze it and blend it again later for more of a frozen treat. Experiment and see what works for you.

I would suggest soaking your dates for at least 15 minutes before making it so they are soft and blend well without chunks. I keep blended dates in a small tupperware for recipes that call for sweetener.

3 Dates and 1 Tablespoon of Unsweetened Cacao Powder per (small Haas) Avocado works well, however that is up to you.

This dessert is truly delicious and a great way to get your 'creamy chocolate fix' in the healthiest possible way. 
Hope you enjoy...
