1 large avocado
2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons of pure maple syrup
1/4 cup of coconut milk
1/4 teaspoon amaretto extract
Place avocado, cocoa powder, maple syrup, coconut milk, and amaretto into a large blender. Puree until completely smooth. The mousse will be a creamy, pudding like consistency. If it’s too thick, feel free to add more coconut milk to get it at the consistency you desire. Separate the mousse into bowls and top with raspberries and chopped almonds. Serves 2-4 people. Enjoy!
