As a vegan, most chocolate products are pretty much out so you’ll find yourself consuming a lot less chocolate. The upside, I’ve found, is that you consume higher quality chocolate because, with the animal products omitted from the chocolate you’re eating, there’s a lot more room for that cocoa to shine.
This is an important thing to remember for this next recipe. Since we’ll be using a little bit of an unconventional ingredient, you need to make sure you find a good quality cocoa powder, or just one you know you enjoy, to use because that’s what’s really going to transform the flavour of this simple dessert.
You will need:
1/4 cup cocoa powder (sub for cacao if raw vegan)
2 tablespoons sweetener of choice (agave, maple syrup, granulated sugar)
SECRET INGREDIENT: 2 ripe avocados
If you prefer a richer, more chocolatey mousse, you can skip the sweetner in the recipe completely!
Scoop avocados into blender along with your sweetener
Blend until completely smooth
Blend again while gradually adding cocoa powder
Serve as is or refrigerate and serve chilled
