It's super easy to make.

Avocados 
Cacao powder
Agave

put it all in a blender for a minute or so and voila!

I made this once and it was delicious.  Sorry that I don't have the measurements I just threw it all together and experimented with the amount of ingredients since I didn't have an actual recipe.

It's very rich and a little goes a long way.

Enjoy  :)

Here is the recipe I use.  A friend was over for dinner this summer and afterwards said to me, "was that really avocado?"  She had no idea...
I add fresh fruit, like strawberries or raspberries and sprinkle with some chopped nuts to give it that rich dessert feel.  Enjoy!

Chocolate Mousse
Yields:  1 cup, 2 servings
 
1/4 cup pitted medjool dates, soaked
1/4 cup maple syrup or agave nectar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
3/4 cup mashed avocados (1 1/2 avocado)
1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa or carob powder
1/4 cup water
 
Place the dates, maple syrup, and optional vanilla in a food processor fitted with the S blade and process until smooth.  Add the avocado and cocoa powder and process until creamy.  Stop occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula.  Add the water and process briefly.  Stored in a sealed container, Chocolate Mousse will keep for three days in the refrigerator or two weeks in the freezer.  Serve chilled or at room temperature.
