Even though you probably have no trouble eating up the delicious avocados we’ve been getting week after week (my son has taken to eating them with a spoon!), there’s no reason why you can’t try something new, right?
Chocolate doesn’t necessarily seem like a logical pairing for avocado, but I’ve been seeing avocado cakes, brownies, and more popping up all over the internet and in cookbooks. The luscious avocado, it turns out, is a perfect ingredient for the last course of the meal.
This mousse is a creamy, dreamy, dairy- and guilt-free delight. If you’re a chocoholic like me, you won’t be let down by this dessert. You can easily swap out the honey for agave nectar, if you’re vegan.
2 small or 1 large avocado
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tablespoon raw honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
Slice the avocado in half and remove the pit. In a blender or food processor, puree avocado flesh until smooth. Add cocoa powder, honey, and vanilla, and blend until completely mixed and no lumps remain. Scoop into dishes and serve immediately, or chill until ready.
