Chocolate Mousse (it’s made with avocados, and it’s raw and vegan!)

My best friend growing up has a brilliant little sis that keeps coming up with recipes I have to try. This chocolate mousse is some of the best I’ve had, and it’s vegan! It couldn’t be easier to make. Check her out at Lychee Therapeutics. This tastes like dark chocolate truffle filling. I served it with sliced peaches, blueberries and whipped coconut milk (did you know you can whip the cream that solidifies at the top of a can of coconut milk? Take that top layer of cream and sweeten with a little maple syrup and some vanilla and whip with an electric mixer. It doesn’t get as voluminous as whipped cream, but the texture is spot on.)

Avocado chocolate mousse

– 2 ripe avocados
– 1 cup raw cacao powder
– 2 tablespoons coconut oil
– 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
– 1 teaspoon vanilla
– 1/2 cup maple syrup (can use other sweetener, add more or less depending on your taste)
– pinch of sea salt

Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Chill for 20 minutes and then enjoy!

Here’s all the ingredients turning into luscious mousse…
