Chocolate Mousse


From The Healthy Chef website, courtesy of Shaylee.

½ c. organic  maple syrup
2 large ripe avocados
1 tsp. vanilla paste or extract
½ c. raw cacao

Put the maple syrup into a high speed blender, then add the avocado, vanilla, and cacao, in that order.  Blend for about 30 seconds until smooth and creamy.  Add a splash of water or coconut milk to make a lighter mousse.

Spoon into a bowl and allow to set in the fridge.  The mousse is delicious by itself, or use as a topping for cakes and cupcakes (add 2 tbsp. melted coconut oil to firm it up).
