Chocolate Avocado Mousse
Love avocado, chocolate and dessert? Me too! Then this recipe is for you!
Avocado may not be the first ingredient you think of when you think of chocolate mousse, but trust me, it's seriously delicious.
This healthier dessert is super creamy, and will also help you get plenty of healthy fats and an extra serve of fruit/veg.
Tip: Use a dry metal spoon when stirring the chocolate as moisture in wooden spoons can cause the chocolate to seize (go hard and grainy).
This Chocolate Avocado Mousse recipe also super simple, quick and easy to make.. oh and it tastes amazing too!
