This healthy chocolate mousse is made of only a few truly natural ingredients.
  • 3 avocados - very brown and soft
  • 3 tbsp. raw, organic cacao powder (you can use cocoa powder but it's less healthy)
  • 1½ tbsp. organic vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp. raw, organic agave syrup
  • Optional: 3 tsp. Himalayan sea salt before blending to offset dark cacao/chocolate taste. Add coconut or fruit of choice for garnish.
  1. Peel avocados - make sure they are very brown and soft.
  2. Add avocados to the blender.
  3. Next add cacao powder, vanilla extract and agave syrup and blend. If you don't have a high speed blender, you may have to pulse/blend it more, stopping and using a spatula to mix.
  4. Blend until you reach a creamy desired consistency - typically about two minutes with a high speed blender.
  5. Taste test - if it tastes too much like avocados, add a little more vanilla extract and/or cacao. If you have a sweet tooth, add slightly more agave.
  6. Eat right away and/or put in refrigerator for a thicker consistency.
It took me a few times to "perfect" my mousse. Once you reach the desired consistency, taste and do the following:
-add Himalayan sea salt to tone down the cacao flavor
-add more cacao if you like a dark chocolate flavor
-add an additional tbsp. of agave for sweetness or additional medjool date paste (medjool dates covered in water for 30 minutes.)
