Chocolate Avocado Mousse by Chef Valentina Cordero

This month we're asking you to commit to a "Meatless Something", it could be a meal, a day, a weekend, a week, a month, or a complete lifestyle change. The choice is yours! A dietary shift can have more environmental impacts than you think. For example, livestock accounts for more than 14% of global greenhouse gas emissions. A vegetarian-conscious diet could cut those emissions by up to 70%.
Our #girlofthemonth Valentina Cordero, a renowned vegan chef, is sharing with us an easy and delicious recipe that will satisfy your sweet tooth!

INGREDIENTS (4 servings)

  • 1 large avocado
  • 2 tbsps of maple syrup
  • 2 dates
  • 2 tbsps of raw cacao powder 
  • 6 tbsps of almond milk
  • 1 tsp of He Shou Wu powder (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract 
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of cacao nibs
  • 1/2 cup of raspberries to top 
  • Pour the milk and maple syrup in a medium sized pan at medium heat until warm. Add the dates in the mixture and boil all together for 15 min or until soft. 
  • Add all the ingredients to your Vitamix-like blender (avocado, cacao powder, salt, He Shou Wu, vanilla extract, milk, maple syrup, and dates) blend until smooth. Add more almond milk to achieve desired consistency. 
  • Pour into serving containers and refrigerate until its time to eat.
  • Serve cold and top with berries (raspberries, blueberries, blackberries) and add cacao nibs to taste. 

Hope you all enjoy!

made with love,
