Eat: Avocado cacao mousse

Day five of chocolate week: After all the indulgent recipes I've added this week I thought it a good idea to have something a little healthier today but no less delicious. Today's recipe is from the kitchn

Serves 4 - 6


4 ripe avocados
1/3 cup raw coconut nectar
1/2 cup raw cacao powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt
fresh fruit and nuts for garnish


In the bowl of a blender or food processor, blend avocado until smooth. Add all other ingredients, blending until mixture is uniform. Chill for about 2 hours in the fridge or half an hour in the freezer. Garnish with fresh fruit or chopped nuts.

Note on the recipe:

If you want to try this recipe, but don't have the raw coconut sweetener or cacao powder on hand, agave, honey and unsweetened cocoa powder are fine-tasting substitutes.
