High-Fiber Chocolate Mousse


f you’ve never tried avocado chocolate mousse before, this healthy recipe will take you completely by surprise!

It is rich and silky smooth… and you really can’t taste the avocado. Avocados are 100% cholesterol-free, rich in vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients, on top of a lot of fiber—a nutrient which provides a feeling of fullness and has been associated with lower odds of any disease under the sun, especially for women.
