This amazing and healthy chocolate mousse is made with a base using avocados. If you've never had anything like this, this might sound really weird. But avocados have the perfect texture. They are living, fresh food, loaded with nutrients and healthy live oils.

Prep time: 15 minutes Makes: 4 servings Difficulty: easy

Gluten free Dairy free option Egg free Grain free Soy free

Use all organic ingredients, and ensure any packaged items are labeled gluten free.

2 medium sized Ripe avocados
1/3 cup Cocoa powder (non Dutch processed)
8 - 12 Dates, pitted and chopped roughly
1/4 cup Fresh coconut milk (not the boxed or canned kind)
1 teaspoon Pure vanilla extract
Pinch Sea salt
Substitutions and Notes:
  • Coconut milk: In place of the fresh coconut milk, you can use plain yogurt (no additives, no sugar), heavy cream, or as a last resort you can use water or a light fresh fruit juice such as cantaloupe or watermelon, just be careful not to use too much, since it will be runnier.
  • Dairy free: Choose a non dairy liquid if not using fresh coconut milk.
  • If the dates are the shriveled variety, soak them in hot water to soften them.
  • Add all the ingredients to your blender.
  • Blend until mixed and creamy.
  • Serve immediately, or chill in the fridge.
  • For a bit firmer mousse, you can chill in the freezer for up to 1/2 an hour.

Delicious and nutritious!
