Chocolate Avocado Mousse

Avocados in chocolate mousse sound extremely odd to the typical individual. The thing with avocados is that their natural flavor is rather bland. They can morph into almost any flavor you add to them. Their texture is perfect for pudding or mousse.

Avocados are very much a food that either you hate or you love. I have a close friend who loathes avocados and she ended up loving this chocolate mousse. Another friend said that this recipe tastes exactly like the chocolate mousse that is served at the Bellagio on The Strip.

Either way, this chocolate mousse recipe has been a huge hit with every person I have had try it. Even my dad and my father-in-law loved it…and they are the two individuals who I thought for sure they would decide against it.

Add in the melted chocolate into the blender or food processor. Blend on high until a smooth consistency is achieved. If the texture is on the thick side, add in the almond milk a couple of tablespoons at a time and blend after each addition. Repeat until the desired consistency is reached. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours and up to 4 days. Serve by itself or top with fresh fruit such as raspberries and fresh mint leaves.
