Avocado chocolate mousse with orange twist


Ok. I confess. I never accepted that the avocado would taste so good chocolate. I have come across a lot of avocado chocolate mousse recipes. But each time I shrugged it off thinking that the mousse would definitely smell and taste weird. I refused to make anything out of avocados except for the milk shake I used to make. Well I have to admit that I made the milk shake so many times that I ultimately got fed up of it. That is when I decided to make this mousse. 


I first tried making this with just half an avocado and I must say that I was thoroughly blown away by the taste. It tasted all gooey and chocolaty without a trace of avocado. I was never so delighted to have proven wrong. So I decided to make the mousse again. But this time with one whole avocado and with my favourite fruit- Orange. Needless to say the mousse turned out just heavenly. It was creamy, and delicious but it was also laced with the flavour of orange. To top this heavenly taste, this dessert is absolutely guilt free. Yes. I did include some milk powder and some melted chocolate, but that is definitely optional. This dessert is definitely healthy if eaten as it is. But if you really want to indulge, then try serving or eating this with vanilla ice cream or fresh fruit. It will take this dessert to a whole new level altogether.
