Chocolate avocado mousse topped with whipped cream and strawberries

Chocolate Avocado Mousse

"Everyone I know loves this mousse - and no one can tell that this one is made with avocados. If you can taste the avocado, add more cacao next time. It’s a great way to use up older avocados that are starting to brown a little. Garnish with fresh fruit or chopped nuts. I like to serve this mousse with whipped coconut cream - YUMMO!" - Mee McCormick, My Pinewood Kitchen: A Southern Culinary Cure
