This light and creamy dessert is chocolaty, rich and delicious, but virtually guilt free. Go ahead and indulge!
Can you believe that this, can be turned into…..
My brother is not a vegan, but he is a big supporter of Alex’s and my lifestyle. Recently he sent me a recipe (unfortunately, I don’t know where it came from so I can’t give credit to the author, but I did change it a bit, so….) for a vegan chocolate mousse that he thought I should try. The recipe called for avocados – like seriously?
I’ve read about people using avocados to make brownies and other desserts, but I have to admit that I was skeptical. How could my staple ingredient for salads, guacamole, and egg-less salad possibly be good in a dessert? Well, thankfully I stepped outside of my food box, because people, avocados make a wickedly good chocolate mousse!
Avocados, you are my dream food.
Light, creamy, and chocolaty, with just a hint of espresso flavor (that’s my addition to the recipe), this is everything that a conventional mousse is. Except, this version doesn’t have the cholesterol that you’d get from the heavy cream and eggs. Nope. This vegan version is all about healthy, guilt free, indulgence.
Better yet, there isn’t any cooking involved! Healthier. Faster. Easier. Are you in?
Take out your food processor and put all of the ingredients in it. Now blend! Within minutes you’ll have a phenomenal treat that took all of five minutes to make.
I wish you were here to share it with me. We could pull out some blankets from my wicker basket and cozy up on my patio furniture and enjoy the crisp fall air, while shoveling spoonfuls of this whipped chocolate – espresso goodness into our mouths. Doesn’t that sound like a great way to spend a fall afternoon?
I have to thank my bro for texting this recipe to me. It’s amazing, and I promise I’ll make it for you the next time I see you. Xoxo
