So apparently yesterday was National Chocolate Mousse Day? It sounded like an awesome excuse to make my first dessert in my Vitamix. This turned out so thick, rich, and creamy! It was way better than the stuff sold in plastic cups in the grocery store (plus way healthier!) and it didn’t taste like avocado at all.
This makes 2 generous servings.
1 avocado, peeled and pitted
3 Tablespoons cocoa
1 cup almond milk
1 cup pitted dates, soaked in hot water for 1 hour, then drained
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Put everything into the blender or food processor and blend until creamy. Chill for 1 hour and then enjoy. Top with chopped nuts, sliced strawberries, or coconut whipped cream, if desired.
PS – If you’re using a Vitamix, you can probably skip soaking the dates, but if you are using a food processor or another blender, you definitely want to soak them to ensure your final result is completely creamy. I soaked mine for 30 minutes even though I used a Vitamix.
