AVOCADO CACAO MOUSSE

When I found out you could use avocado to make desserts, I was not sure about that as avocado had been always consumed as guacamole or some variations of that dip at my home. However, I decided to have a go at making sweet dishes based on that green fruit. After few attempts I found the perfect one.

Avocado and cacao give quite bitter taste. But when fresh fruits and some lemon added, the flavours are nicely balanced. 

Avocado is very nutritious. It is a fantastic source of good fat. It is associated with good health. So when using good quality ingredients, it becomes a healthy dessert - that is like a dream for a person who loves sweet treats!
