Recipe: Avocado Chocolate Mousse

Having ventured through all sorts of gluten free, dairy free, and sugar free baking for over 12 years, I've certainly made avocado chocolate mousse before. But it wasn't until a recent trip to Palm Springs where it was made for me that I realized- I'd been missing a crucial ingredient, and maybe that's why I was never enamored with this dessert. Until now! That crucial ingredient? FAT! Because fat makes everything more delicious, right? What makes this recipe truly satisfying is a good amount of melted coconut oil blended into the mousse. Chill it, and later you have a silky, rich, luxurious mousse. I'm obsessed.

The recipe is incredibly easy. You'll need:

4 ripe avocados

1/2 cup coconut oil, melted

1/3 cup cocoa powder

1/4 cup maple syrup

pinch of salt

Blend all ingredients in a food processor until very smooth, adding more sweetener if needed. Transfer to individual ramekins or glasses, cover, and chill. I highly recommend serving with some strawberries or raspberries.

Enjoy, and be sure to tag me if you try it!
