Okay, so maybe that title is a bit dramatic, but I’ve been perfecting this for a while now and I truly believe that it is just the bee’s knees. I love it, I think that my toddler loves it even more than me, and my (sometimes hard to please) hubby also thinks it is great. WIN for MOMMY!
How did I come to develop this recipe? Well, if you’ve been on Pinterest lately you’ve no doubt seen multiple pins for chocolate avocado mousse. When I first saw them months ago (and yes…pinned them myself), I was stoked. I got right to work on the mousse. How was it? Eh, okay. No one was overly excited about it in my home…it was just okay.
But I was had been so excited to create it! Maybe I should try another recipe.
Alright then, so I tried another one, with the same amount of excitement. THIS one would be IT! I mean, it just sounded like such a great idea; such a wonderful marriage of *real* food ingredients. End result…the same. Eh, okay. I mean, neither try was bad, they just didn’t live up to what I had anticipated in my mind. …third time’s a charm, right??
This time, I made some tweaks…quite a few tweaks, really. I could tell by the way it was whipping up that I finally (finally) had a winner on my hands. I let it cool a bit in the fridge, gave my toddler the first bite and heard, “Ummmmm! Moooore!” Before giving him another bite, I indulged. I agreed with Oliver, “Ummmmm! Moooore!” So, here you go…The BEST Chocolate Avocado Mousse (seriously!) 🙂

Yum, Yum, Yum!!! Let me know what you think about this recipe. My real test will be to take this over to the neighbors house the next time we grill out together. I’ll see if anyone would ever guess that this is an uber healthy version of a chocolate mousse. (Kathie- If you are reading this, don’t tell Mary Ellen.) 😉
Have you been over to check out my Scratch Mommy Skincare Shop lately? Head on over. I’d love to send a Butter to YOU! I refilled some stock over the weekend and mailed out a big order early this morning, but I would be happy to get another order out today.
Until next time…
