Avocado Chocolate Mousse

This Avocado Chocolate Mousse is decadent, rich, and sweet but you don’t have to feel guilty because it’s made with 4 simple ingredients! Avocados, sugar, almond milk, and cocoa powder.

I’ve been wanting to try this for sometime now and I’m so glad I did. Because, this came out really well.
One thing I want to note is that you can fully customize this recipe. You can use any kind of milk and any kind of sweetener. It will not effect your texture since the avocados are what make this so perfectly creamy!

Avocado Chocolate Mousse

Start by cutting the avocados in half (vertically). Using a spoon remove the avocado from the skin. Add it to your blender or food processor. Next, add your cocoa powder, cinnamon, and vanilla extract.

Finally, add in the sugar and almond milk. Place lid on securely and blend.

Blend until its fully mixed and there are no clumps or avocado chunks. Divide into saucers or bowls and eat right then or feel free to refrigerate for up to 48 hours.

I also had some mint in my garden and decided to use that as garnish, adding a little sprig to each.
