Vegan Chocolate Mousse
A few notes about the ingredients:
Make sure your avocado is nice and ripe.
Like, almost too ripe.
We’re not going for chunky guacamole consistency here. The softer the better.
Although I do realize that’s a fine line with avocados. They’re so moody, like bananas.
Vegan honey is something I have only recently discovered exists and I’m loving it!
Apples are the secret ingredient that gives it the sweetness you expect.
For milk, I personally prefer coconut for this recipe. Almond also works but for some reason didn’t get as thick as I wanted.
Also, if you can’t find cacao powder, carob powder is a good substitute although it may not be quite as rich.
And finally… vanilla bean paste… omg, do you know about this stuff?
It’s like vanilla extract amplified! Get some; you’ll love it.
