Recipe: Chocolate Avocado Mousse

In an attempt to be healthy before my holiday to France, I decided to give this super-healthy dessert recipe a go – avocado chocolate mousse. Now, avocado in a dessert may sound strange, but I promise you, it doesn’t taste of it, and just gives it a beautiful creamy texture. And this recipe is also dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan and raw, so it’s suitable for pretty much everyone. Best of all, it took less than five minutes to make. My kind of dessert!

This is what you call a guilt-free pudding. It’s full of goodness and none of the artificial stuff (okay, depends on your vanilla essence, but this can easily be omitted!), yet it tastes like it should be a million calories and totally sinful! Hooray! Pudding nirvana! I enjoyed it in the garden with the latest copy of Ernest Journal, and revelled in my moment of peace and quiet.

Yes, I made two. Yes, I might have eaten both myself. On separate occasions though, honest!

I am bringing this dessert to Fiesta FridaΒ even though I’m away on holiday. Sorry to miss you all, but I look forward to catching up on all your great recipes when I’m back, and maybe I’ll even have some French delicacies to share next week!

So, what do you think? Avocados in dessert – a yay or a nay?
