I LOVE avocados!! I love them in any form, unfortunately, my boys don't. The only way they like them is in guacamole. So I try to sneak then in whenever I can. One way to do that is by making a dessert out of them. Yes, you heard it right, a dessert! They are so creamy that when they are blended with the right ingredients, you hardly notice them!
This morning I served the boys yogurt with granola and frozen raspberries. Since I am not eating yogurt. (I actually don't like yogurt!), I made something called "Live Chocolate Mousse". A recipe that was featured in this months Vegetarian Times magazine. I topped it with walnuts, frozen raspberries, and granola. It was soooo good! Give it a try, you won't be dissappointed!
Live Chocolate Mousse
1/4 c. plus 3 tbs. agave nectar
1/4 cup plus 2 tbs cocoa powder
3 tbs almond butter
1 tsp lemon juice
pinch of cinnamon
Puree all ingredients in food processor 3 to 4 minutes or until smooth and creamy, scraping down sides as necessary.
I have made other versions of this type of dessert, but I like this one best because it doesn't have any sugar.
