Vegan Mint Chocolate Mousse

By: Isabel Smith, MS, RD, CDN

There’s nothing I love more than a healthy dessert and this one is at the top of my list. It’s not too sweet, but it’s extremely rich and satisfying. It’s packed with anti-inflammatory healthy fats and antioxidants from both the avocados and the cacao. So this is a dessert you can feel good about eating and it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser!
