Give this creamy dessert combination the benefit of the doubt. You will not be disappointed.

I agree that one would not accept the combination of avocados and chocolate right way. As a matter of fact, it took me quite some time to acknowledge this flavour combo. But when I did try it, I was completely blown away by the taste. Apart from being all creamy and chocolaty, this dessert is totally guilt free. For something that is so delicious, it is ridiculously easy and simple to put together. All it takes is few minutes of your time, a few ingredients and a blender and voila!!! A fabulous dessert is ready. This mousse taste great all by it itself. But if you really want to indulge, then try pairing it with some vanilla ice cream and fresh fruits. It will take this dessert to a whole new level all together.
