Ingredients
 

  • 2 large ripe avocados
  • 4 pitted medjool dates*
  • 1/4 cup plant milk of choice (almond, coconut etc.)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • Optional: 1/4 cup melted semi-sweet chocolate (in addition to cocoa or in place of)

Instructions

  • Cut the avocados in half. Remove the pit and scoop out the flesh into a high speed blender or food processor. 
  • Add in all remaining ingredients (make sure you pit the dates!) 
  • Process until completely smooth and no chunks remain. 
  • Taste and add more maple syrup or cacao powder if desired. 
  • Transfer to a bowl, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. 
  • Serve with coconut whipped cream, fresh berries, or enjoy as is!

Notes

In lieu of the dates, you can sub for extra maple syrup if desired. If omitting the dates, leave out the almond milk and add just 1-2 tbsp as needed. 
Once prepared, this recipe will store in the fridge for 5 days. Store in an air tight container for best results. 
For an even richer mousse, you can sub 1/2 of the cocoa powder for about 1/4 cup of melted chocolate chips. OR for the ultimate rich chocolate mousse, you can add 1/4 cup melted chocolate in addition to the mousse. I'll save that option for the true chocolate lovers.
