Healthy Chocolate Mousse Made from Avocado

 

I have heard many times about a healthy chocolate mousse made with avocado and was intrigued by the idea.

I like avocados a lot even though I often find them very uncooperative. Simply, they can be too hard for days and then suddenly one day they are already overripe: brown and not looking appetising at all.

But to use them in a chocolate mousse?! The only way I could convince myself this whole idea would work was to make such a mousse myself.

 

Healthy Chocolate Mousse – Guilt-Free Indulgence for Breakfast or Dessert

When I made the Healthy Chocolate Mousse for the first time, to be honest, I wasn’t quite sure about the result.

However, other family members who tried it liked it a lot. So I gave the mousse a second chance.

This time I adjusted the amounts of ingredients; I also decided to make it even healthier by adding chia seeds.

And guess what? – I loved it!

It was nice, chocolatey and creamy. Even though the portion seemed to be small, it was quite filling.

Another advantage of this mousse is that you can have it either as a healthy dessert or a healthy breakfast. And who could say no to a guilt-free but super-healthy chocolate mousse for breakfast?
