Do you find yourself wanted to pull out all of your hair during this election? Do you just want to run into a closet with a jar of Nutella and make it all go away? Maybe you fantasize about buying that bungalow on a beach in Bora Bora, just to stay there for the next four years. Well have no fear, I invite you to calm your senses and feed your soul with my Avochocolado Mousse recipe. I know, that sounds simplistic. How can we cure the world’s ills with chocolate? Of course we can’t do that, but we can make our lives a little sweeter and more enjoyable in a small healthy way each day. This mousse is made entirely from plant based foods that you can feel good about, and find in any supermarket:
Now you might be thinking..”what the hell is that avocado doing in there Blanche? This ain’t guacamole!” But, hear me out, avocado is actually a fruit, and when you mix it with sweet flavors, it really works. This mousse is rich and creamy, and pairs beautifully with berries. It’s also dairy free and pretty much sugar free, because all of the sugar comes from the dates. I do add a couple of spoons of maple syrup in the video, but that is entirely optional. I must admit I do torment my carnivorous brother with vegan surprises, and he was pretty skeptical about this treat, until he tried it. It was love at first bite:
So, are you ready to try avochocolado? I promise you won’t regret making it if you are a chocolate lover, I mean just look at that lusciousness!
To get you started, here is a grocery list:
Package Mejdool Dates (make sure they are really soft)
Nondairy milk of choice (almond or cashew work great)
Cocoa powder (preferably free trade)
Maple syrup (optional)
