Real avocado chocolate mousse

I spent the past hour running to this album and thinking about how this mousse will turn out. I was very sceptic as I am not the person who pretends bean brownies are actual brownies and beetroot cake is delicious. Also, chocolate kale chips are the most disgusting thing I ever tasted.  But the mousse turned out perfect. I couldn't imagine it being any better and I'm not sugarcoating anything. It is that good. It has a slight coconut undertone that I love + it's totally raw if you don't use the rum, all doe I highly suggest you do. This dessert is a perfect balance of healthy and unhealthy. It's still full of (heathy and good for your gut) fat, but it tastes oh so good and chocolatey. I think you have to give it a try.
