Chocolate Avocado Mousse
Your family won't believe that this creamy, rich chocolate mousse is actually good for them! Avocados are incredibly nutritious, being loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, containing no cholesterol or sodium, and being low in saturated fats - they even have more potassium than a banana! Serve this up as a delicious dessert, or as a tasty snack with fruit for the kids!
