2 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup maple syrup or agave nectar (adjust to taste)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
A pinch of salt
Optional toppings: dairy-free whipped cream, berries, or shaved dairy-free chocolate
1. Melt Chocolate:
Place the dairy-free chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 20-second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate chips are completely melted. Alternatively, you can melt them using a double boiler on the stovetop. Let the melted chocolate cool slightly.
2. Blend Ingredients:
In a food processor or blender, combine the ripe avocados, melted chocolate, unsweetened cocoa powder, maple syrup or agave nectar, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.
3. Blend Until Smooth:
Blend all the ingredients until the mixture is smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Taste and adjust the sweetness if necessary by adding more maple syrup or agave nectar.
Transfer the chocolate avocado mousse to a bowl or individual serving glasses. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours, or until it's nicely chilled and set.
Serve the dairy-free chocolate avocado mousse chilled. You can garnish it with dairy-free whipped cream, fresh berries, or shaved dairy-free chocolate if desired.
