Healthy Chocolate Mousse
This chocolate mousse is made with simple, all-natural, healthy ingredients. Instead of using heavy cream and egg yolks for the base of the mousse, use avocado! It may sound strange, but avocado makes for a creamy, dreamy, thick mousse, and you can’t taste it past the chocolate!
