I created an amazing and incredibly easy chocolate mousse! The secret ingredient creates a whipped mousse that’s secretly healthy. I am quite sure that you can never be able to guess that secret ingredient!
Whenever you feel a little sweet craving, and you don’t want to make anything too difficult or time-consuming, then you can try this super easy chocolate mousse recipe!
The meaning behind the secret ingredient. I call it a secret ingredient because I wasn’t going to originally add it in, but it had to be used as soon as possible, or it was going to hit the trash.
So what’s the secret ingredient? Any guesses? Yes!!! AVOCADOS!! Avocados are like gold around here, we hoard them and do not waste them!
To sweeten this secret ingredient easy chocolate mousse, I recommend using Swerve or something similar. If you are only using Stevia drops, please taste after you add a drop, and then taste to your desired sweetness. Stevia is much sweetener, and a little bit goes a long way. These easy chocolate mousses are perfect to serve at a birthday party, as well! So easy and delicious!
