Nothing says "Happy Valentine's Day" like chocolate mousse and strawberries. Show your family how much you love them by serving our reinvented version of this decadent dessert! Our secret is to replace the heavy cream, usually used in chocolate mousse, with our favorite seasonal fruit: avocados. Avocados are just as creamy while also adding protein, potassium and vitamins to this delicious dessert. Let us know if your family knows the difference!
• 2 perfectly ripe avocados
(we recommend using Haas avocados as they're extra creamy)
• 1/4 cup agave
• 2 TBL cocoa powder
• 1 tsp vanilla extract
• a pinch of salt
Combine all ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth. You may need to add a bit of water to get the ingredients moving in the blender; add a tablespoon at a time until ingredients just begin to come together. The consistency should be that of a light whipped mousse. For some extra fun, cut strawberries into heart shapes by trimming off the stems then cutting the strawberry down the middle - length wise and finally cutting a small v-shape into the tops of each strawberry.
