For this week in desserts we needed a break from all the pure sugar! Is it too much to ask for a delicious dessert that also offers nutritional value? With this recipe, we learn that it is not! With nutrient-rich ingredients such as vitamin-packed avocado, antioxidant packed cacao and vitamins, and mineral-packed coconut milk, this delicious mousse does not disappoint. Of course it would be even more delicious if paired with our coconut milk whipping cream and a bottle of vegan, organic red wine. The great thing about this mousse is that it is adjustable – if you like it richer or sweeter, just add more cacao or stevia.
