Ingredients
  

  • 2  large avocado – ripe
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp agave nectar
  • 2 tbsp natural honey
  • 2 tbsp  organic sugar (for added sweetness – optional)
  • 2 tbsp organic all natural maple syrup ( use if needed – adjust sweetness to your taste)
  • 2 tbsp organic coconut palm sugar
  • 1 tsp  low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1-2 tsp vanilla extract (no sugar ones)
  • Ripe strawberries for garnish

Instructions
 

  • Whisk all the ingredients in a food processor to a smooth creamy texture. Check for sweetness before you serve. Scoop out the mousse in a parfait, wine or martini glass. I used a shot glass to serve and I served chilled.
  • Garnish with juicy strawberries.

Additional notes:

  • This dessert is low calorie but that doesn’t mean you could eat one bowl after another. Remember stick with one serving size.
  • Since it has multiple natural sweeteners, you can use little of each and come back for more if needed.
  • Not ideal for women with gestational diabetes.
  • Recently I read about coconut palm sugar in Dr.Oz show and that seems to be a healthy alternative for those who are diabetic and pre-diabetic. Infact, you can go about using it like sugar. That is, for 1 tablespoon of sugar you should use 1 tablespoon and that makes it an easier option during baking as you don’t have to crack your brain for the measurements.
