This Vegan Chocolate Mousse recipe is easy, healthy, and oh so satisfying. The avocado makes it rich and creamy, and the cocoa powder gives it a deep, chocolate flavor. The natural sweetness comes from dates. Top with whatever fruit is in season, or transform it into a fruit dip by decreasing the amount of plant milk.

This rich, creamy vegan chocolate mousse pairs perfectly with any seasonal fruit.
1 cup unsweetened soy milk (or any plant milk)
1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
½ cup dates, soaked in water for 30 minutes
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups strawberries (or whatever fruit is in season)
Put the non-dairy milk, avocado, cocoa, soaked dates, and vanilla extract into a blender and puree on high for 30 to 60 seconds until smooth and creamy. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides with a spatula.
Transfer the mousse to 4 individual glasses, ramekins, or jars and chill in the fridge for at least 3 hours.
