    Another healthy dessert option for vegans and non-vegans alike. This rich mousse is made with unsweetened cocoa powder and avocados and the good news is you don’t have to feel like you’re cheating your diet. Studies show eating a piece of dark chocolate a day can improve your health and lower your risk of diseases. Raw cocoa is full of iron, fiber, magnesium, copper, zinc and potassium. There are of course other health benefits to list, like improved brain function and lowered blood pressure, but we could be here a while. Bottom line – raw cocoa and avocados pair well for a long list of health benefits camouflaged as a dessert.
