Skinny Chocolate Mousse for Two

I never thought I would see the day when I would be sharing an avocado recipe with you. Me and avocado…well…we’re not exactly BFFs.

To put it more bluntly, I hate the stuff. HATEHATEHATE it. The only way I ever usually go anywhere near avocado is when it’s mashed with tomatoes, jalapeños and spices in guacamole (and that’s when the guacamole is tucked into a fat burrito under layers and layers of cheese and salsa!)

But this? This stuff is amazing. The thing that really does it for me is the texture – it’s unbelievable. The pureed avocado creates the most fantastic silky, smooth, velvety texture that I’ve honestly never experienced in any other dessert EVER.

And the taste? Well, I’m not going to lie to you – you can taste the avocado just a teeny tiny bit. But I really don’t think it will bother you. If an avid avocado hater like myself can eat it by the bucket load, I’m sure you can get onboard, too.

This skinny chocolate mousse is the perfect mid-afternoon pick-me-up that I desperately need. Living in Tenerife, I’ve adopted the Canarian tradition of indulging in a siesta in the afternoons on a weekend, so come Monday, my body starts dozing off at about 2.30pm and I need a way to keep it awake because it turns out that the people in the office aren’t pro-siesta and sleeping at your desk is against office policy. Who knew? Luckily, this delicious skinny chocolate mousse is just the thing to keep me going until dinner time!

  1. This looks delicious! I can’t believe there’s avocado in it! I’m not a huge fan of the stuff, but if you say you love it regardless, I might just have to give it a try.

    I’d be thrilled if you’d link up at this week’s Off the Hook!

  2. What a great way to enjoy the benefits of avocado w/o tasting the flavor much, if you’re not a big fan. 🙂

    I’m visiting today from Thursday’s Favorite Things.

  3. That photo of the smooth avocado in the food processor was gorgeous! What a lovely green… Oh no! I guess I have 70’s taste in decor. hehe Love the wholesome ingredients too! Pinned! 🙂

  4. Thanks for sharing – I love avocado and love that picture showing the smoothed-out cado. Yum! Had to pin this recipe – it sounds very tasty!
