Chocolate Avocado Mousse

It is a challenge to plan a menu for a group with food allergies, sensitivities and diet restrictions. Often the best a hostess can do is serve guests several food options. While it’s a gracious thing for a hostess to do, it is also time and budge consuming.

Unless of course the hostess has an incredible Chocolate Avocado Mousse recipe that can please the masses.

Serve in small vintage wine glasses with fresh summer berries.

My recipe for a Chocolate Avocado Mousse follows this post. I adjusted Australian Blogger Bizzy Lizzy’s Good Things recipe to make our dessert dairy free.

A few substitutions later and I now have the perfect nutrient packed dessert free of gluten, soy, egg , and dairy. For a nut free recipe replace the almond milk with rice milk or coffee.

This is a rich mousse. I recommend serving a large dollop on top of a bed of fresh berries.

At a recent picnic, I served the mousse in plastic wine glasses with molded chocolates

The fruit will also help anchor your chocolate mustaches and lips, if you choose to serve your desert in a less dignified setting.

Eat well and be happy my friends!
