I’m proud to have Lauren from Part Time House Wife filling in for me today. Lauren is a witty young married woman conquering the world of food blogging.

Her recipes are soooo delicious looking. She covers everything on her blog from drinks, apps, and snacks to dinner with a side dish of her daily life with her husband Scott and their cute dog Daphney.

When Lauren told me she had an avocado recipe in mind I was so excited! I’m in love with avocado and you will love this recipe.

Chocolate Avocado Mousse

Hey, Ditch the Wheat Readers!

I’m so excited to be sharing with you today! I’m Lauren and I cook, bake and take hundreds of pictures of it all over at Part Time House Wife.com.

When I heard Carol was ditching all of us “Ditch The Wheat” readers for the Dominican and needed a few guest posts, I jumped at the opportunity!

Even though, if I have to be honest, I’d rather ditch everyone for the Dominican too. 😉 But Guest posting here is definitely the next best thing!

Carol is such a great blogger and a fantastic photographer and it’s really an honor she allowed me to give you your daily dose of gluten-free deliciousness!

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!

  1. haha Lareun are those stella dora cookies with the mousse?? They are my favorite little cookies! I thought I was the only one that still bought those 🙂 And if those aren't…sorry I sound like a total creep! You're mousse looks amazing too! I've always wanted to try avocado mousse, yours looks soooo smooth and creamy, yummy guest post!

      1. I agree but it was a guest who was sharing it her recipe.

  2. Lauren has finally convinced me. I have to try chocolate avocado mousse.

  3. That's it?! Hm. OK, this has to happen now. My boyfriend hates avocado–I'm sort of looking forward to waiting for him to eat it, say he loves it…then telling him. Teeheheee

  4. Very yummy! I decreased the cocoa powder to 1 T. Tasted like it was chocolate and bananas– deliscious and nutritious!! New snack around our home!!

  5. You promise I am going to like this? I am not sure!!! I like avocado, and I like chocolate, and I like honey (my choice sweetener), but I never considered trying them together. Very clever!
