I’ve been hankering to try this avocado chocolate pudding/mousse thing ever since it became a thing. I looked at a few recipes and whipped up my own. My verdict is this: not convinced. So it didn’t taste like avocado, it did taste chocolatey and nice. But the whole time my head was screaming “YOU’RE EATING MUSHED AVOCADO!”. I didn’t get that blissfully satisfied feeling you get when you’ve got a full fat, full dairy, full sugar chocolate gooey joy melting on your tongue. When it comes to chocolate mousse, I’d argue you need the dairy and the fat and the sugar. If you’re going to be bad, then BE BAD. My leftover avocados will go in my avocado chocolate brownies next time. They were top notch.

1) put 1/2 avocado, 1 dessert spoon cocoa powder, 1 dash of milk, 1 dessert spoon of natural yoghurt, 1 sploodge of honey and a sprinkle of salt in the food processor and whizz.

2) spoon into a rammekin, leave in the fridge for half hour and you’re done.
