Chocolate Avocado Mousse is one of my favorite recipes for something that feels more indulgent than it is. Who doesn't feel fancy eating mousse? Bonus points for all the protein packed in!
When it comes to food, I was a pretty arrogant first-time mom because my daughter ate absolutely everything we put in front of her. She'll still grab a whole tomato or orange pepper and eat it like an apple. Cut to our second child who could live on PB&J's and graham crackers the rest of his life! And while there is a constant video game playing in my head in which the goal is to get as many colorful foods into his body as possible, I'm doing my best to focus on intuitive eating rather than making each mealtime a battle.
'Listen to your body' has been a helpful prompt for all of us during quarantine—i.e. Do I need a nap? Or a run around the yard? Do I need space or snuggles? Though for the day-to-day, we rely on veggie-heavy smoothies and sauces as a consistent way to make sure my son is getting all the nutrients he needs while we work on the more 'obvious' veggies on his plate.
Our close friend, Lily, shares a go-to easy and delicious recipe that we think you'll love.
- 2 avocados (soft but not overly ripe)
- 3 Tbsp Tejari Organic Cacao Blend
- 2 Tbsp honey or agave
- 2 Tbsp melted milk or dark chocolate
- 1/2-3/4 cup oat milk (start with half and add more if needed)
- Blend all ingredients in a food processor and chill for 2-4 hours.
- For a real show stopper, we like to top with homemade whipped cream, chocolate shavings, and sea salt flakes!
