This dairy-free chocolate mousse is so creamy and delicious, you would never guess the main ingredient is avocado!
Why it’s so good for you:
Raw cacao is one of the world’s most potent sources of antioxidants and mineral rich! Not the mention the healthy fats you’ll get from the avocado, and fiber to fill you up.
(use organic ingredients where possible)
2 medium sized ripe avocados
1/3 cup raw cacao powder, or more to taste
5 fresh dates, pitted and roughly chopped
1/4 cup coconut milk, nut milk or filtered water
1 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch sea salt
Optional: toasted coconut threads, grated dark chocolate or berries to serve
Soak the dates in warm water for 10 - 30 minutes to soften.
In a blender or food processor, add the avocado flesh, dates and milk, vanilla, salt, and cacao powder. Blend until smooth. You may need to add a little more liquid to facilitate blending, and scrape down the sides of the jug a few times.
Adjust ingredients to taste, adding more cacao powder if it needs it. Serve and garnish with your choice of toppings.
