Quirky Avocado Chocolate Mousse

Quirky Avocado Chocolate Mousse

(Did you love that too?) So don't be put off by the quirky ingredients and lack of sugar - even the fussiest will love this one... unless they find out it has avocado in it - shhhh. ;-) And no, it's not just the usual vegan chocolate mousse made from avocado and cacao powder. It's quirkier. You'll see.
