Avocado chocolate mousse

This week’s recipe is a tribute to the most versatile, mysterious and wonderful fruit that mother nature has brought to us: AVOCADO.

As a big avocado lover I had to make it at least once for Mohubb’s and when I found a bunch already ripe on the supermarket’s shelf, I knew the day had arrived.

I usually use avocado in savoury dishes, as a guacamole, in a salad or as a creamy sauce but since I know avocado is not something everyone loves (??!!) I decided to make something with it that most people would enjoy anyways. Have you ever heard of a chocolate/avocado mousse, well now you have and you should try it because it is DELICIOUS!

Ingredients

  • 4 ripe avocados
  • 1 cup raw cocoa powder or vegan chocolat chips (the second option makes a richer mousse)
  • 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup vegan milk of choice (60-120g)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • pinch stevia OR 2-6 tbsp sweetener of choice
 If using the chocolate chips, carefully melt them in a double boiler before beginning. For both versions, combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor until completely smooth. Use less milk for a thicker mousse and more for a thinner/creamier result. If using chocolate chips, use only 2-3 tbsp sweetener of choice or pinch stevia. If using cocoa powder, use the higher amount of sweetener. (If you don’t have a blender or food processor, you can try mashing everything together without a blender).
