Avocado in a dessert?
This super simple recipe is the perfect way to end a festive meal. Why not have it instead of Christmas pudding or even just as an indulgent weeknight dessert?
The avocado in this creates a deliciously creamy texture, no need for egg whites as you would in a traditional chocolate mousse! Your dinner guests will never know that this is a healthy version of their favourite pud.

Did you know that avocados are a rich source of mono-unsaturated fats – aka. good fats! They help us to absorb fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, D, E & K and help regulate cholesterol levels.
