Velvety avocado chocolate mousse

This healthy dessert is super satisfying and full of healthy fats. Try it the next time you're looking for a clean way to indulge a chocolate craving.

Have you ever met those people that say they don’t like chocolate or that sweet things aren’t for them? I often think how much easier my life would be if I didn’t love desserts as much as I do. But dessert is basically my all-time favourite form of food in the entire world.

When I made the decision to change my lifestyle, I thought I would have to part ways with my beloved desserts. No more cake, cookies, chocolate, brownies, ice cream, lollies or muffins. I remember wondering whether health and wellness was really worth giving that up – talk about a junk food addict…

But luckily I was wrong. In my searches for healthy recipes, I stumbled upon a few Pinterest boards with recipes for clean desserts. Now, whether you think “clean” is the correct way to describe a type of food or not, you have to admit that a chocolate mousse made from avocado, cacao, stevia and almond milk is probably going to go down a lot better than a pint of Ben and Jerry’s.

You see, I’m the type of person that gets stomach cramps and bloating when I eat a lot of processed sugar-laden food with copious amounts of additives. Not only does it spike my blood sugar like crazy, but I usually spend the next few hours waddling around and feeling super uncomfortable. But despite feeling like crap every time I ate these desserts, it never entered my mind to stop.

Ever since I stumbled upon the world of clean and healthy dessert recipes, my life has pretty much changed. It’s far easier to eat more nutritious meals when you have a delicious treat in mind. It’s even better when that yummy treat is also good for you.

This heavenly chocolate treat offers:

  • Heart-healthy unsaturated fats
  • Antioxidants and other beneficial plant compounds
  • Low in sugar to avoid blood glucose spikes
  • NO additives or preservatives
  • Extremely rich and satisfying so you’ll only need a little bit to beat your craving

So the next time you’re craving something sweet but want to keep it nutritious, try this delicious, velvety, creamy avocado chocolate mousse.
