Sweet Treats: Maple + Bourbon Chocolate Mousse

This. Is. Delicious. And it has a mystery ingredient. It is a dessert that almost everyone can enjoy - there isn't any dairy or gluten, just loads of chocolaty good flavor :)

This sweet treat has a mystery ingredient...but you'd never guess it from the flavor!

Maple Bourbon Chocolate Mousse
Serves 4
  • 2 ripe avocadoes
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips, melted
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 5 tablespoons maple syrup (or honey)
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon bourbon 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave or over a double boiler - your call.
  2. Pop all of the ingredients into your food processor or blender and blend until very smooth. If you can stand it, let it chill in the fridge for a few hours. 
Do you have any unusual ways to use avocado?
