Delicious and Healthy Avocado Chocolate Mousse Recipe
The idea of avocado chocolate mousse recipe has been popular on the health food scene for years, but the society claimed that avocado chocolate mousse is too weird or too healthy to really be dessert.
The best part about this avocado chocolate mousse is that it tastes so decadent and so sinful that you completely forget you’re getting so many health benefits at the same time! Avocados are 100% cholesterol-free and contribute nearly 20 vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. Just one serving of the superfood offers eight percent of the daily value of fiber which is a nutrient which provides a feeling of fullness and has also been found to potentially reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.
With less than one gram of sugar per ounce, avocados have the least amount of sugar per serving of any fruit. They act as a “nutrient booster” by helping the body to better absorb fat-soluble nutrients.
Flesh of 2 ripe avocados (240g)
1/4 cup (32 gr) regular cocoa powder
1/4 cup (32 gr) dutch cocoa OR melted chocolate chips
3-4 tbsp milk of choice
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
sweetener of choice to taste: 1/4 cup (60 ml) pure maple syrup
Putting all the ingredients in the blender is the most important part of the recipe. The version with the chocolate chips will be richer; the version with the dutch cocoa (important to use dutch) will be lower in fat and sugar.
Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor until completely smooth. You can use 3 tbsp of almond milk, but if you’re not using a liquid sweetener then you might want to add a little extra for a smoother consistency. Annnnd, guess what? Your delicious and healthy avocado chocolate mousse recipe is just ready to be served! So quick and so simple, no?
