chocolate avocado mousse

This creamy & decadent dark treat is the perfect way to end a busy weekend. The flavor of the avocado is magically masked by the dark chocolate and it’s a dairy-free and healthy alternative to other heavy mousses and chocolate puddings that are full of preservatives. Bonus? You’re getting the best type of healthy fat from all the avocados. Not too sweet but just rich enough to satisfy your sweet tooth!
 Recipe adapted from Giada de Laurentiis’ Feel Good Food
