I think I’ve perfected this recipe! A few years ago, I ate at a Vegan restaurant and fell in love with the chocolate mousse they had – it was cold, chocolatey, delicious, and healthy! Actually really good for you dessert. So, I’ve tried many recipes, adapted them and finally, I think this is the keeper!

You and your kids will love it!

Adapted from the original recipe found on 40aprons.com

  1. 2 large, ripe avocados, pitted, flesh scooped outchocolate mousse
  2. ½ cup maple syrup
  3. 4 ounces (vegan, if you want) dark chocolate chips
  4. 3 T coconut oil, melted
  5. 1/2 t balsamic vinegar
  6. 1/2 t. tamari (gluten-free)
  7. small pinch salt
  8. 1 small drop of peppermint oil (do not skip this step)
  9. optional for even more chocolatey-ness: 1 spoonful raw cacao powder
Instructions
  1. Melt chocolate in a double-boiler, being careful not to overheat or burn.
  2. Scrape into a blender with all other ingredients. Blend until very smooth–a few pulses at the end will help get it all in there. Scrape down mousse as needed to ensure a perfectly smooth texture.
  3. Throw in the freezer for an hour, then serve.

Enjoy!
