I was in the mood for an afternoon snack. (Read: I wanted an excuse to eat chocolate). Since I'm half-heartedly attempting this juice cleanse (um, totes cheating for CHOMP! tonight) I thought, instead of eating the entire bag of frozen Ghirrardeli chocolate chips in my freezer, I shall be clever--I shall make something relatively healthy and disguise it with chocolate.
Cue the Hallelujah chorus and meet my snack savior: Chocomole.
It is described as a pudding but really is more of a mousse, and I'm wishing raspberries were in season so they and Chocomole could be friends. But I toasted up some coconut flakes and they're getting along quite nicely. And who knew avocados and cocoa powder were so tight?
The recipe is from Kris Karr's Crazy, Sexy Diet which I had been coveting for several months at Tattered Cover, before I broke my promise to myself that I wouldn't buy any more cookbooks until I had better used the ones I already had, caved, paid, and practically skipped home to use the juicer my parents bought me for my birthday the year prior for the very first time. This particular recipe makes use of avocados, cocoa powder and a few other plant-based items to make this amazing dessert. /afternoon snack. I popped a bowl in the freezer and in the meantime toasted up those coconut flakes for the top.
Why, oh why did I wait so long to try Chocomole?
