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, 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.
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  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 mousse recipe in the wings for a while and since its gluten free I thought it was the perfect fit for today’s post! 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, heart healthy, and totally addicting!
Let’s get started shall we? Oh… and by the way…The secret ingredient is … AVOCADO!

Chocolate Avocado Mousse

1 Ripe avocado
3 ½ Tbsp.  Gourmet cacao powder
3 ½ Tbsp. Light agave nectar (or preferred sweetener)
In a food processor combine avocado,
Cacao powder
And Agave Nectar
Blend until smooth
Scrape the sides
And blend a little more…
Refrigerate until chilled throughout.
Serve with cookies
Or just a spoon
and ENJOY!!!

    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

    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!
