DECADENTLY DARK CHOCOLATE MOUSSE- A SURPRISING LEAN AND GREEN RECIPE
Deep, dark, rich, heavy smooth chocolate mousse?
A lean and green recipe? On program? But how?
The surprise is in the base- thick, rich and creamy ripe avocados that, when paired with dark chocolate and stevia take on a whole new world of flavor never before realized. 3 ounces of mousse (if you can eat it all it’s so rich!) contain just 2 healthy fats and one condiment- that’s it! Indulge and delight this Valentine’s Day or any time you need a delicious recipe that will make you feel delighted and not deprived!
You can watch a video of me making the mousse (as well as talking about healthy appetizers).
