Double Chocolate Avocado Mousse

It’s summer, everybody is trying to look slim and feel healthy; meanwhile, all of you, beautiful people, crave some exceedingly decadent, sinfully chocolate desserts – confess! Relax, you are not alone, as confirmed by the classics. Here is my quote for today:

You see – even Charles Dickens felt the same way! However, we do want to stay slim and healthy, so numerous chocolate avocado mousse recipes have been popping all over the internet for a number of years already. Mine is just another take on it.

A couple of ripe Haas avocados get peeled, chunked, and dropped into a food processor or blender, followed by soy milk, blue agave, a splash of vanilla extract, and, of course, unsweetened cocoa powder. Press the button and, while it’s whirling, entertain your kids with a chocolate song.

By the time the song is finished, so is your mousse. You might want to check on it to see if the sides should be scraped and give it a taste, in case you want to add a bit more agave or make it a little thinner by adding a little more soy milk.

You know what a chocolate mousse looks like – just make sure it’s blended to uniform silky smoothness. But I always abide by My Own Rules of Dessert, and Rule #2 states, The More Chocolate, the Better (for my rules of dessert, click here)! That’s why I have a hidden resource: sugar-free chocolate chips.
