2 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup maple syrup or agave nectar
1/4 cup almond milk or any plant-based milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
A pinch of salt
1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts (for garnish)
Fresh berries (optional, for garnish)
1. Blend Avocado Mixture:
In a food processor or blender, combine the ripe avocados, unsweetened cocoa powder, maple syrup (or agave nectar), almond milk, pure vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.
2. Blend Until Smooth:
Blend all the ingredients until you have a smooth and creamy chocolate mousse-like consistency. Scrape down the sides of the blender or food processor as needed to ensure everything is well combined.
Transfer the avocado chocolate mousse to a bowl or individual serving glasses.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow it to chill and firm up slightly.
Before serving, garnish the mousse with chopped hazelnuts for a delightful crunch and, if desired, fresh berries for a burst of color and freshness.
Serve the Raw Avocado Chocolate Mousse with Hazelnuts as a guilt-free and decadent dessert option.
