Avocados and chocolate? Naturally, it doesn’t sound like the most pleasing combination, but don’t knock it till you try it!
This is one of my most favorite decadent treats! Not only does it fulfill my chocolate craving needs, but the healthy fats in avocados are incredible for protecting against various cancers and heart disease! Plus, there is more potassium in avocados than bananas and they are a great source of vitamins E, K and folate.
1/2 cup of dates (Madjool)
3-4 tablespoons of 100% raw organic cocao powder
1-2 tablespoons of vanilla
Pinch of sea salt
Blend all ingredients together in a food processor. Scrape the sides with a spatula and continue to blend until smooth. Top it off with sea salt and serve with fresh fruit.
Paired with strawberries, this Avocado Chocolate Mousse will satisfy any sweet tooth.
