  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1/2 cup organic raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup local raw honey, to taste
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ancho chile, to taste ( i used cayene)
  1. Combine all ingredients in food processor and process until completely smooth.
  2. Taste and adjust seasonings.
  3. Chill to set.

Depending on the size and ripeness of your avocados, you may need to adjust some of the ingredients. Just make sure to taste the mousse once you blend it. If it’s too thick, add a little more coconut milk. Adjust the honey, cinnamon and ancho chile powder to your liking
