Vegan Chocolate Mousse Pudding

Vegan desserts can be just so yummy, and when they're CHOCOLATE vegan desserts, then I'm doubly interested.

One of the quickest and easiest vegan chocolate desserts that I have learned is essentially an avocado sweetened with dates and enhanced with a splash of vanilla. When left in the fridge for about 2 hours any avocado taste is completely gone and your friends, vegan and non-vegan alike will have no idea that the base is avocado.

Vegan Chocolate Pudding/Mousse (serves about 4)

Ingredients

1 large avocado
2 Tbsp of raw Dutch-method cocoa (I buy this organic variety from Amazon)
Approx 8 pitted dates
Splash of vanilla
Water

Place all the ingredients except for the water in a food processor. Process until smooth. Add water a little at a time if necessary to achieve desired consistency. Place into a covered container and refrigerate for approximately 2 hours. Serve with fresh fruit and/or berries.

Note: If you taste it immediately upon making it, you will be able to taste the flavor of the avocado, but you will be amazed that after a couple of hours of refrigeration that the pudding with taste just like a rich chocolate pudding.

Here's a link to another vegan chocolate mousse recipe that is a little more upscale if you are going to be entertaining some of those snobby guests of yours.
