Introduction: Chocolate Avocado Mousse
This is something I've been seeing all over the internets - chocolate avocado mousse! Sounds crazy, I know. But it works. It's actually super tasty! I think I'll be getting my creamy chocolate fix this way from now on. Pudding cups are dangerously full of dairy.
Chocolate avocado mousse is also a really excellent vegan dessert you can throw together in no time. :D

Step 1: Ingredients
one large avocado
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup soy or nut milk
1/4 cup honey
one teaspoon vanilla
Using the amounts above, you end up with a dark chocolate style mousse. Not too sweet! If you'd like a more milk chocolate flavor, I suggest using a little less cocoa powder and more honey.
Step 2: Combine!
Put everything into a food processor or blender. Break the avocado up into smaller pieces to make it easier on your machine.
(I've got this food processor - I love it! Highly recommended. :D)
Step 3: Blend!
Process for 10-15 seconds and then stop and scrape down the sides. Then process again until nice and smooth.
You can eat it right away or chill for a little whil before you dig in. I just wouldn't let it sit too long in the fridge - once the avocado starts oxidizing like crazy it will alter the flavor, and not in a good way!
