To be honest, the first time I tried this chocolate avocado mousse I was very hesitant. Don’t get me wrong, I love avocado, but as a dessert? No way! Lisa, my favourite vegan friend, convinced me otherwise. It’s light, smooth and creamy, and you don’t have to feel any guilt when licking the bowl clean. Perfect when summer (and the never-ending battle to look good in a swimsuit) is just around the corner.
