Imagine for a moment an elegant, silky smooth chocolate – avocado mousse with a rich nutty crust made with hemp hearts and topped with fresh fruit. Sound good? Well then, I encourage you to try this recipe. It is stunning!
I made this dessert for a dinner party and it was a hit. It required no baking and the preparation time is approximately 30 minutes.
The recipe is versatile, and can be easily be adjusted according to taste. Everyone has different sweetness levels they enjoy, so the maple syrup in the filling can be increased or decreased according to taste or health requirements. As any good chef will tell you, “Taste everything, and adjust accordingly to your preference.” (I added more maple syrup to the filling than the recipe called for. This was simply according to my personal taste. Yours may very well be different.)
Delicious silky smooth texture and taste is not the only thing this dessert offers, believe it or not, it is also has health benefits. This dessert is vegan, loaded with good fats, proteins, antioxidants and vitamins. And, to top it off, this recipe can also be made with marijuana oil and used to medicate a variety of ailments. Now that’s a magic dessert.
