THE RECIPE

Easy Avocado Hazelnut Chocolate Mousse

Avocados for dessert? Absolutely.

Whether it’s salty or sweet, sometimes the only way to satisfy a craving is to feed it. For a guilt free experience, feed your need for dessert with Kathleen’s hazelnut, chocolate, and avocado mousse. This healthy treat combines avocado’s subtle taste and creaminess with the dark and distinct flavor of dark chocolate. Kathleen’s added touches of honey, maple syrup or molasses, and Hazelnut Kahlua liqueur wrap around the bittersweet chocolate and sweeten the avocado naturally. Equally, as with all mousses, texture is just as important as taste. Kathleen ensures a perfectly smooth consistency as she melts the dark chocolate chunks and then blends the avocado. No matter the day, this dessert is sure to wow a weekend crowd or satisfy your own late night cravings in a healthier way.

Kathleen Henry from Produce on Parade

I stand against the exploitation of all creatures and reflect such in my cooking. I use commonplace ingredients, as Alaska doesn’t lend many exotic ingredients. I'm also a researching enthusiast. I always have to know the latest in nutrition research.

Kathleen is the creative mind and voice behind Produce on Parade, a vegan food blog. As a resident of Alaska and produce enthusiast, Kathleen’s blog emphasizes the flavors found in simple vegetables and fruits. Sweet potatoes, kale, bananas, and almond milk are just some of the ingredients found throughout her easily prepared dishes. Blended, baked,or roasted, all of her recipes emphasize nutrition. Her sweets are mainly naturally sweetened and the heartier dishes are low on salt but high on flavor. If you’re meat free and enjoy the simpler side of the produce aisle Produce on Parade is definitely the blog for you.
