Vegan Chocolate Mousse

Wow, I am 2 weeks late with these posts o_O
But life happens right? Or laziness... laziness happens too.
Sorry for the 2 weeks of nothing!

This week we made this absolutely amazing mousse we saw on Facebook.
I do not know who came up with the recipe, nor can I find the original post.
Rachel and I saw it and we decided to give it a try.

You will need:
(For 2 servings)
1 ripe avocado (pitted and peeled) 
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup agave nectar
1/4 cup almond milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

We tippled the recipe to make sure there was enough for everyone to try.

All you do is add everything to your food processor...
No kidding, that is all you do!

Pulse the processor until you get a nice and smooth consistency.
You may need to use a rubber spatula to push down any stray avocado pieces.

Creamy looking isn't it?

Here is the end result!
A very sinfully delicious and surprisingly healthy dessert. 

The consistency to me is much more like pudding than mousse. 
It is great on it's own, but I loved it with some frozen strawberries cut up in it.
Rachel said it taste just like gourmet pudding, she loved it (this is a understatement) and we will both be making it again.

Doing a throwback this week! 
You all know Thorin and Sate from past posts, well this is a picture I took the first week we had Thorin. 
Squeeee!!!! Isn't he cute?
Sate was so patient with him, he puts up with a lot of kitten play still.

 Thank you for reading!
