Chocolate Avocado Mousse

At $3 a piece, an avocado is not something to waste. If you're wondering what to do with an overripe, bruised, or less-than-flavorful avocado, just add chocolate...

Raw Chocolate Avocado Mousse:

  • 1 Avocado
  • 1/2 C Dates
  • 1.5 C Nut Milk (Hazelnut, Almond, Brazil nut, or your favorite)
  • 1/3 C Raw Cacao (use a combo of cacao nibs, cacao powder, and carob)
  • 1/4 C Pecans
  • 1 T Maca Powder
  • 2 T Mequite Powder
  • 1 t Vanilla
  • Pinch of Sea Salt

Blend all ingredients in your VitaMix until you get a thick, smooth, chocolatey pudding.

...'Cause avocados are too good for the compost bucket.

Wow! I just made this with Vanilla Coconut Milk in place of the Nut Mylk, and it was the best ever!
