Want to learn how to be super sneaky and trick your kids into eating avocado – which is incredibly nutritious for them in SO many ways? Make this chocolate avocado mousse!! Even my 4-year old, who is my pickiest eater, was licking the bowl clean. Avocados are rich in healthy fats, are cholesterol free and can be used in some very surprising ways to replace higher fat ingredients in recipes.
This is easy and quick! No refined sugars, only honey and vanilla extract for added sweetness. My kiddos loved it with the dark chocolate chips – I used Nestle, which is a lot sweeter at 53% cacao. You can also make this more decadent and grown up by adding a better quality, more bittersweet chocolate (try 72% cacao or higher).
Maybe you can’t get your kids to sit and eat avocado toast (my FAVE!), but I bet you’ll be able to pass this off as chocolate pudding. Avocados are chock full of vitamins and such a great food for our growing little ones. An awesome source of fiber, potassium and vitamins that support a healthy heart, skin and immune system.
So go ahead, be sneaky! And be sure to report back and let me know what everyone thought…
