Naturally sweetened healthy 4-ingredient chocolate mousse made with avocado and honey – you’d never know this simple recipe was dairy-free and paleo!
True story: all through his twenties, my dad was a skinny minny, and he would eat chocolate mousse and drink chocolate shakes right before bed to try to gain weight. While his strategy did not pan out (the wolvarine-like metabolism runs rampant in our DNA), he bestowed upon his offspring the unrelenting love for – you guessed it – C H O C O L A T E ! !
I remember my dad eating bowls of homemade raw chocolate chip cookie dough while he worked in his office, buying 5-pound hunks of chocolate during the holidays (for which he used a chisel, hammer, and/or screwdriver to break into pieces), and drinking chocolate milk every.single.morning. I’ll be darned if I’ve ever saw him touch a piece of fruit-infused dessert. It’s just not on his radar.
But chocolate…chocolate is front and center for my dad and I when it comes to desserts. While it wasn’t until my late teens that I tried chocolate mousse, I always loved his story about attempted mousse-induced weight-gain, and was completely blown away when I eventually did give it a go.
