Keto - Chocolate Avocado Mousse


Prep Notes


The best part about this avocado chocolate mousse is that it tastes so decadent and so sinful that you completely forget you’re getting so many health benefits at the same time!


Avocados are 100% cholesterol-free, contribute nearly 20 vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients; and just one serving of the superfood offers eight percent of the daily value of fiber—a nutrient which provides a feeling of fullness and has also been found to potentially reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. With less than one gram of sugar per ounce, avocados have the least amount of sugar per serving of any fruit, and they act as a “nutrient booster” by helping the body to better absorb fat-soluble nutrients.


Yields

4

Ingredients


  • flesh of 2 ripe avocados (240g)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (80g) OR cocoa powder (40g)
  • 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup milk of choice (60-120g)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • pinch stevia OR 2-6 tbsp sweetener of choice (See recipe directions)


  • Directions


    **You have two options for this recipe: The version with the chocolate chips will be richer; the version with the cocoa powder will be lower in fat and sugar.


    If using the chocolate chips, carefully melt them before beginning. For both versions, combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor until completely smooth. Use less milk for a thicker mousse and more for a thinner/creamier result. If using chocolate chips, use only 2-3 tbsp sweetener of choice or pinch stevia. If using cocoa powder, use the higher amount of sweetener. (If you must, you can try mashing everything together without a blender. It just won’t be nearly as smooth.)
