Organic Vegan Chocolate Mousse...

Organic Vegan Chocolate Mousse.

Serves 6

This tastes just like a conventional chocolate mousse made with eggs and cream, and yet it’s completely vegan! I don’t think anyone will guess the main ingredient is avocado, unless you tell them.

The coconut oil helps to firm up the texture, and the agave syrup supplies the sweetness; alternatively, you could use pure maple syrup.
