This mousse is so rich and decadent, you won’t believe it’s vegan and made with avocados!

2 avocados, pitted and peeled

½ cup (120 ml) cocoa powder

1/3 cup (80 ml) brown-rice syrup or yacon syrup

1 tsp (5 ml) pure vanilla extract

Pinch sea salt

1 tsp (5 ml) finely grated orange zest

2 Tbsp (30 ml) plain soy, almond or other milk substitute, or water

5½ cups (1.32 L) quartered, stemmed strawberries

Add avocados, cocoa powder, syrup, vanilla extract, sea salt, orange zest and milk to a food processor or blender, and blend until very smooth. Stop the machine to scrape down sides once or twice to ensure that all ingredients are blended well.

Serve with strawberries for dipping or scooping.
