Giada de Laurentis Chocolate-Avocado Mousse review
Usually Giada’s recipes have cheese and a whole bunch of other fattening ingredients, but when I saw this fairly healthy dessert she made on TV, I wanted to try it. She uses chocolate chips, agave, almond milk, avocado, cocoa powder, vanilla extract and tops it off with fresh raspberries. Here’s the recipe from her website: http://www.giadadelaurentiis.com/recipes/997/chocolate-avocado-mousse
I expected to love this pudding, but didn’t really like it. I hate wasting food so I decided to use it in a smoothie and it turned out delicious. This is what I did. Make recipe as instructed from above link, but don’t add the raspberries. Put in a medium sized bowl. Put two heaping tablespoons of pudding, 3/4 cup frozen raspberries, 3 frozen strawberries, 3/4 scoop protein powder, and 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk in blender and mix. Pour into a large glass. This makes a thick, delicious raspberry-chocolate smoothie. Yum!
