Remember in the last post, when I said I had no New Years Resolutions?
I completely take it back.
My resolution? Learn to take better pictures! ‘Cause this picture does not do this treat justice. Although this may appear as muck, rest assure that it’s a piece of muck from heaven. I don’t know why I haven’t posted this until now, because I’ve had this recipe from waaayyy before I even started this blog.
Every week, my dad buys a bundle of avocados. Due to the holidays, however, we have been lagging behind with eating them. As a result, my kitchen has accumulated 10 avocados- all ready to be devoured. Translation: experiment time for me! I already made 2 batches of guacamole for the post-holiday party at the program I volunteer at. Plus, I whipped up this Chocolate Avocado Mousse. Unlike the traditional chocolate mousse, there’s no butter, sugar, or cream. Instead, it’s filled with the healthy fat of an avocado. A guilt-looking, but guilt-less treat!
Now, in the next post, don’t be surprised if you see more avocados 🙂
Chocolate Avocado Mousse
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
1/4 cup pure organic maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
In a bowl, mash the avocados together (using a food processor will get all the lumps out, but if you don’t mind them, you can use a fork or potato masher). Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix until smooth. Place in the fridge for about 3 hours before digging in 🙂
Additional Note: In my opinion, the mousse tastes even better the longer it chills. So, if you can (this is hard for me), save some for the next day!
