Avocado-Chocolate Mousse (serves 4)

Adapted from No Meat Athlete

Ingredients
4 oz semisweet chocolate
1 Tbsp virgin coconut oil
2 avocados
2 Tbsp cocoa
1/4 cup agave syrup, maple syrup, or honey (or any combination thereof)
2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt
1/4 cup natural peanut butter (or other nut butter)

Directions
1. In a double-boiler, melt the chocolate with the coconut oil. Stir until smooth. Remove from the heat.
2. In a separate bowl, mash the avocado roughly with a fork or pastry cutter, then whisk to get the lumps out (use a food processor or powerful blender, if you’d like, but I preferred to save on dishes!).
3. Combine the melted chocolate with the smooth avocado.
4. Add the remaining ingredients except for the peanut butter. Use a spatula to force the mousse through a fine mesh strainer to get any last lumps out.
5. Stir in the peanut butter.

PostSubject: Chocolate Avocado Pudding with Coconut Milk    Thu Nov 15, 2012 6:12 pm

If you are new to dark chocolate, use a graduated approach that will allow you to slowly habituate to the new taste. Gently reduce milk chocolate in recipes while replacing the reduced portion with dark chocolate (3/4 milk chocolate and 1/4 dark chocolate at first and moving to half/half and so forth, over time).

In time, you will grow accustomed to the new taste and may well find it far more satiating and less addicting. A square or two of 75% cocoa chocolate in the evening will satisfy a craving without priming the pump the way milk chocolate does (that insatiable desire of wanting another sugar fix with the ensuing blood sugar roller coaster...).

Chocolate Avocado Pudding with Coconut Milk ~ Egg free, Dairy free

1 + 1/2 ripe avocado, peeled and flesh removed from pit
1/3 cup quality cocoa powder (100% pure cacao)
1/3 cup pure maple syrup or honey
1/4 cup coconut milk
2 tsp vanilla essence

------------

Makes approximately two half-cup servings or four quarter-cup servings.

Directions:

Place all ingredients in a blender and press GO.

Blend until all ingredients are well combined and a creamy, consistent texture is achieved.

You can serve this pudding straight from the blender or chilled (store it in the fridge).

When you're ready, place into serving bowls, hang on to your socks and enjoy!
