Paleo: Avocado Chocolate Mousse with Orange Zest

chocolate mousse









One of the most popular treats at Wildfitness (Four Fitness Getaways That Will Change Your Life), this ingenious marriage of rich avocados with high-quality cacao will have you saying “au revoir” to the cream, sugar and butter-laden original.

  • 1 large ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons of high-quality cacao powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon raw honey
  • orange zest for garnish

Add all ingredients to a blender and process until mixture is a thick mousse consistency.  Adjust the cacao and honey levels to taste.  If you’d like, toss in some cinnamon, vanilla, or whatever other spice inspires you.  Divide among four small glasses, and chill for at least 2 hours.  Garnish with fresh orange zest before serving.
