Chocolate mousse can be high in saturated fat and calories. Our version beefs up the protein with collagen peptides for a more balanced dessert. We also replaced some of the sugar with dates and the unhealthy fat for healthy monounsaturated fat from avocados.
Recipe: (Makes 4 servings)
4 medjool dates, pitted ¼ cup dark chocolate chips, melted ¼ cup unsweetened cacao powder 1 tsp pure vanilla extract 2 medium avocados, pitted and peeled ¼ cup hot water Pinch sea salt 2 scoops INVIGOR8 Collagen Peptides
Cover pitted dates with hot water to soften. Let soak about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, microwave chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl in 15-second intervals until completely melted.
Place dates, the water they soaked in, melted chocolate and the remaining ingredients in a food processor fitted with blade attachment or high-speed blender and process until mixture is fluffy and smooth. Pause as needed to scrape the sides of the container with a spatula.
Serve right away or store chocolate mousse in an airtight container in the refrigerator for one to two days.
