Anyone, especially a blogger, can get sucked in the related posts trap. You click and click and, before you know it, hours have passed. Unfortunately, this isn’t as fun of a game for me as it used to be. A hacker wiped my site last November and I still have hundreds of photos missing. Big. Bummer.
But I will spin this back to a positive note by telling you I have found the silver lining. Looking at pictureless post after pictureless post gives me a perfect excuse to recreate old recipes and create new photos with a better lens. And I’ll embrace any excuse to use this lens!
FoodFash PB Chocolate Avo Mousse (yields 3 servings)
1 ripe avocado
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Blend all of the ingredients until the mousse is as smooth as possible (I blended a few more cycles after the picture above). Refrigerate for about 30 minutes and enjoy!
It’s amazing how an avocado can mimic a mousse-y texture. The peanut butter and cocoa powder give a rich flavor and almost completely mask any trace of avocado flavor. And even though I can still taste a hint of veg, this is the perfect 3PM-I-need-chocolate treat.
