Did you know that chocolate is actually full of healthy magnesium? This vital mineral is needed for every function of your body, yet it’s estimated that up to 48% of us don’t get enough of it (and it could be worse than that)!1 One delicious way to get your magnesium is with this decadent raspberry chocolate mousse.
Not only is this made with raw cacao that’s packed full of nutrition like magnesium, folate, and iron, but it’s also full of healthy fats. Avocado is a versatile fruit that works well in savory or sweet dishes, and it forms the base of this mousse. My son loves eating an avocado half with a spoon for a snack, and I love that he’s feeding his brain with the healthy fats it needs to function and grow.
This raspberry chocolate mousse is so good though, that you’ll want to grab a dishful for more than just dessert. Since it’s so healthy, I feel no guilt whatsoever indulging in some for breakfast!
I know what you’re thinking…avocado in a dessert?? But I promise, all you’ll taste is sweet, chocolately goodness. Sometimes I’ll put a bit of peppermint or orange in the mix instead of raspberries. It’s such a delicious and versatile way to enjoy some healthy foods.
