tropical vegan chocolate mousse!

This is a really simply dessert and quite healthy too. It’s also very rich, so a little goes a long way.

      Hi Christina,
      I’m sorry to hear you are allergic to avocados…hmmm. Since the recipe calls for 1/2 cup avocado, you could try substituting that 1/2 cup with: 1/4 cup mango chunks and 1/4 cup vegan butter spread. That’s one idea. You could also try substituting 1/4 cup mango chunks and 1/4 cup coconut cream (the creamy top of the can of coconut milk.) Good luck!
