I have a relentless sweet tooth and whilst I try to tame it, nothing ever tastes quite as good as a chocolate dessert! So here’s my version of healthy (in moderation) chocolate mousse! The base is made using avocado which packed with healthy fats and a good amount of dietary fiber too (27g per 100g). The avocado contains a the good monounsaturated fat which will help the body in growth, repair, and development of tissue, including muscle cells. It’s a great alternative to heavy creams which are made of the wrong kind of fat. The end product I assure you tastes just like the real deal! Click MORE to find the rest of the ingredients and ‘how to’…

I think this chocolate mousse proves once again that you can achieve delicious flavours organically without added artificial, unhealthy ingredients.
– The dark chocolate is high in the minerals magnesium and copper which help to activate enzymes your cells need to support your metabolism and make usable energy.
– The avocado is packed with healthy fats (which will help the body in growth, repair, and development of tissue, including muscle cells) and a good amount of dietary fiber too (27g per 100g).
– The unsweetened almond milk is low in calories and sugar yet gives the mousse an airy consistency and also adds a little bit of a nutty taste.
– The Manuka honey is natural and wonderful sweetener alternative to artificial white sugar.
– The crushed nuts on top add a lovely crunchy texture to complement the creamy airy chocolate mouse.
I hope you love this mouse as much as I do and it’s such a joy, and a fabulous party trick serving it to friends and afterwards telling them it’s in fact avocado! No one will believe you! Faya x
