Chocolate Avocado Mousse

I’ve had a sneaky delicious chocolate avocado mousse recipe in the wings for a while and since it’s gluten free, I thought it was the perfect fit for today’s post!

Some people also call it chocolate avocado pudding. It’s amazing because it requires no cooking at all!

Now, I can’t take the credit for the origination of this recipe, I’ve seen it surface on my addiction A.K.A ” Pinterest” pretty often. But the true credit goes to another fellow blogger at Peanut Butter Fingers.

I adapted my recipe from her.

So are you dying to know why this chocolate mousse is a “sneaky” chocolate mousse? It’s all because of the Secret Ingredient.

And Please, Please, Please… don’t be freaked out by this combo! I promise you, it is simply divine, and totally addicting!

Let’s get started, shall we? Oh… and by the way…The secret ingredient is … AVOCADO!
