No-Guilt Chocolate Mousse With Avocado

KnowMore TV

Who doesn't love chocolate mousse? It's decadent, delicious... and, usually, a splurge.... unless you try our version! We've got the most exciting dessert recipe you'll try all summer.

It's a chocolate mousse that removes all the guilt, none of the taste.

We replace the heavy cream with AVOCADO. Yes, avocado. There's no sugar, either... but you'll never miss it. Here's how to make our healthier, lighter... yet creamy, chocolatey avocado mousse.


You need 4 hass avocados

Cut in half and strike the pit with a knife. The pit will stick to the knife and come out easily.

Use a spoon to get the "flesh" of the avocado out of the skin and place in a bowl. The avocado is soft and creamy and replaces the heavy cream in typical mousse.

In bowl, add:

1 tsp balsamic vinegar

1 tsp soy sauce

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1/4c coconut oil

1/2c agave (sweetness without the sugar)

1/2c cocoa powder (less calories than chocolate chips)

Blend everything together in food processor.

Then once blended, put in desired glass or dish and add raspberries for a fresh look.

Watch the step-by-step how-to video above to see just how gorgeous and amazing this dessert really is!
