How to Transform an Avocado




 The clouds are crying as my eldest would say.  I wander if the rain will ever stop.  It’s cold, it’s wet, it’s dreary and not your typical Sunshine Coast weather.  I want to eat a block of chocolate..........

My husband is away competing in this and we wish we could be there cheering him on. The boys are going nuts inside and so am I.   I spy an avocado in the fruit bowl and decide to transform it.   I indulge in some trickery.  

This sneaky raw avocado chocolate mousse reminds me just how incredibly versatile the humble avocado is.  Serve immediately or chill for an hour prior to serving, adjust the sweetness to your desire and top with a sprinkle (only) of grated chocolate pieces (70% cocoa or above) and some berries........  Deliciously satisfying with no guilt - that is my type of treat - just remember this serves 2 and not 1!

  3. I love how versatile avocados are! My fiance is not a fan of them but I wonder, if I snuck them into something tasty like this, if he'd notice... :)

  5. I grew up with an avocado as a dessert - and a combination of choco avocado is always my favorite. THIS is a new recipe for me - and it definitely is a keeper!
