Make This! Avocado Cocoa Mousse

The next time you are reaching for ice cream try this instead! All you need is three ingredients and 5 mins of prep time. This makes a ridiculously delicious snack or dessert and for once, something so yummy is actually healthy.

Avocados are a vitamin powerhouse, rich in magnesium, iron, calcium and composed of Monounsaturated fat (the good stuff). It's packed with essential vitamins that protects against many diseases and helps maintains overall health.

Yay! Chocolate is now considered a health food (well in certain forms and the darker the better). Cocoa can uplift your mood with anantioxidants that act to counteract some of the cellular damage that can lead to chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease.

Ingredients and Instructions:
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 3 tablespoons honey (or sweetened as desire)
You can smash all the ingredients together with a fork or use a blender. Make sure everything is mixed really well. If you prefer a texture more like ice cream - refrigerate for 30 minutes.

For an added fancy finish - cut another avacado in half and spoon the mousse into it. Then encrust the outside with honey and crushed pistachio and chocolate bits. Enjoy!
