Chocolate Avocado Mousse

PuddingThe interesting thing about this recipe is that I first tried it nearly 9 years ago when I attended Bauman College getting certified in Nutrition Education.

My colleagues and I each had to each do a couple of food presentations during the course period, and one of my classmates presented her version of this recipe and I became OBSESSED. I had never tasted anything like this before…or truly, I HAD tasted something like it before (something quite unhealthy), and I loved the familiar, chocolate-y, seems-like-it-was-bad-for-me, taste! I loved Jello chocolate pudding as a kid–you know, the one that comes IN A BOX that you make with milk, lol? Man, I would go crazy for it…and top it with Cool Whip?!? TROUBLE!

I kinda love that this recipe (or similar versions of it) have become so common! I adore naughty looking recipes that truly present no need for guilt at all! Okay, true, you may not want to eat the entire batch (I admit, I’m always tempted!), but it’s sure a heck of a lot cleaner than anything that comes in a box, ha ha! It’s raw, vegan, easy and soooooooo yummy!

I hope you enjoy!
