Dark Chocolate

Avocado Mousse

From NutritionStripped.com

Serves 2

2 large avocado (or 4 small)
1/4 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk (adjust to your desired thickness)
2 tablespoons of raw organic cocoa powder
1/2 bar of your favorite high-quality dark chocolate, melted
2-3 dates pitted
1 tablespoon of coffee/espresso (optional)
1/2 teaspoon of organic vanilla extract
Optional garnish: 1 tablespoon of cacao nibs, 1 tablespoon of shredded coconut, and fresh berries

Step 1
Melt the dark chocolate over a stovetop (or microwave safe bowl).

Step 2
Combine the melted chocolate sauce with the remaining ingredients in a blender or bowl. Combine all the ingredients using a high-speed blender (or a hand mixer).

Step 3
Blend or mix until creamy and smooth. The texture will resemble a fluffy mousse. Spoon into a bowl or wine glass (for some flare) and garnish with toppings of your choice.

To lessen the sugar, use stevia to taste instead of adding dates. To amp up the protein, add chocolate protein powder of your choice—you’ll just have to increase the almond milk.
