Oh what a winner of a dessert! 

I am talking a yummy, creamy, full of chocolate goodness Mousse.  But this one is a bit different, along with rich dark  chocolate I added fresh oranges, dates, cinnamon, vanilla and AVOCADO.  The result is the most wonderful whole mouth feel decadent wonder.  This recipe does not contain egg, sugar, or dairy.  Its a whole plant based healthy bomb that just happens to tick all the lovely things about mousse.

Loaded with the good stuff! More Potassium than Bananas.

Using a food processor or high speed blender, this dessert can be yours in 3 minutes.  The only real planning is to ensure you have ripe avocados.  To help the blending process, I do soak the dates in the juice of the oranges for about 10 to 15 minutes or up to an hour.
