I don’t know about you, but I LOVE sweets. What is better than having something sweet AND have it being healthy all at the same time right?
As a Holistic Nutritionist, I try my very best to instill healthy eating in my house and always try to find healthy alternatives to common desserts. My kids always ask for chocolate pudding but we both know that is loaded with sugar and preservatives so I came up with this great alternative.
This Chocolate Avocado Mousse totally hits the spot and is a total hit in my house, especially with my kids. They don’t even know that it is made with avocado which is the best part. It is high in healthy fats, low in processed sugar; full of antioxidants and of course a great taste that can trick just about the pickiest eater. Here is to a well-kept secret between us moms.
It’s a pretty simple recipe to whip up, even on short notice.
CHOCOLATE AVOCADO MOUSSE
1 avocado, peeled, pitted
¼ cup fair trade cocoa powder
2 tsp. organic vanilla extract
¼ cup organic honey
¼ cup coconut milk
- Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
- Place in ramekins and chill for 15 minutes then serve.
