Chocolate Avocado Mousse
2 medium-large ripe avocados (not too soft), seeded and peeled
1/4 cup unsweetened raw cocoa powder
1/4 cup maple syrup or stevia to taste (or sub 3-4 pitted medjool dates)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, optional
A pinch of Himalayan salt
Place all the ingredients in a blender and puree for a few minutes until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the processor and blend again. Taste and adjust sweetness as desired.
Tips & Notes~
This recipe is good if it is chilled. If you are eating right away put the avocados in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
You can add a banana for some natural sweetness and to mask the slight avocado flavor or you can substitute one of the avocados for a whole large banana to cut the richness but you might want to decrease the sweetener.
Top with some chopped up nuts, toasted coconut or some berries!
