Chocolate Orange Avocado Mousse

Chocolate Avocado Mousse

Would you believe me if I told you this dreamy, creamy delectable chocolate orange mousse actually is made with avocado? It’s true! This hot commodity fruit (it’s a berry!) is much more than the trophy nestled a top some toast or guacamole. No, this monounsaturated (aka good) fat, is more than just a pretty face.

Avocados have a variety of uses:

🥑base of chocolate mousse 🥑use in place of mayo🥑 add to a smoothie
This little treat is replete with nourishment, just don’t go overboard. Everything in moderation. There’s a little bit of orange juice and zest, which contains vitamin C, a fat soluble vitamin helped along in the body by the glorious avocado. How sweet is that?

There’s not a lot of sugar. Only what’s in the chocolate chips (which is very little) and a splash of maple syrup, which doesn’t spike the glycemic index like white sugar.
