Makes 2 Chocolately Avocado Mousse Desserts

Ingredients

 1 ripe medium avocado

FullSizeRender-14

6 pitted dates (if not soft, soak in warm water for 10 minutes)

1 tsp. lemon juice

2 tbsp. cocoa powder

¾ cup Original Unsweetened Almond Milk

1. Place all ingredients in a high powered blender (I use a NutriBullet)

2. Blend until lumps are no longer heard or seen, about 30 – 60 seconds. However, I do feel it’s an added bonus if I end up with a random “date chunk” in my mousse – YUM!

3. Scoop out the light and fluffy mixture into the serving dishes of your choice.

4. Top with whichever toppings float your boat, if any at all. I like chopped Enjoy Life brand Chocolate Chunks. Nuts are good too!

5. If you have a few minutes, place the mousse in the freezer to chill before serving.

Hi Kathy, It’s actually so thick that it hardly moves after you pile it in your dish! Just be sure to use medium sized avocados and not small, itty-bitty ones. 🙂

Will the dates leave a flavor or does the chocolate mask them? ‘Cause you had me until you said “dates”, and I keep picturing something akin to raisins being tossed in this, and having a similar taste.

Hi Jenny, don’t worry: dates taste nothing like raisins! They are sweet and amazing… almost like a maple syrup flavor. In fact, Jeff and I will sometimes eat them by themselves when we have a sweet craving!
