Choco-cado Mousse Recipe

You know what happens when your mom has two huge avocado trees?

Every once in a while you come home with about 30 pounds of avocados that must be eaten!

So, I gave some to my neighbors.

I ate 18 pounds of guacamole.

I froze some.

I made Avocado Crème Sauce.

I am to avocados what Bubba is to shrimp… (Yep, second Forest Gump reference in a week, hey it works)

I’ve seen sweet recipes like smoothies and baked goods with avocado online, but they never really appealed to me. I mean, avocado sweet? Seems suspect.

But, at this point I didn’t have a choice. I finally bit the bullet avocado seed and made a sweet recipe with the good stuff…

Speaking of avocado…

Have you seen this new Subway commercial? Ha!

Question: Do you have a food processor?

I don’t. I did and now I don’t anymore. I really have no idea where it went…

    Yes, I have a wide mouth food processor that I seldom use. I was only using it to make hummus. Once I purchased the Vitamix I didn’t need it for that.

    Umm..I know someone down the street who’s kids could eat avocados by the pound if you ever need to unload some. Just sayin’ ;) Seriously, the boys think avocados are God’s gift to humanity – which is good because they pretty much are!

    My mom & dad have an avocado so we always get a million tons! Your Forrest Gump reference cracked me up because my husband told me earlier this week I was to quinoa what Bubba was to shrimp! :)
    I have a food processor, but barely use it since I bought a Blendtec. But I CAN’T get rid of it, or I will obviously need it within 24 hours.

    You are lucky to have avocadoes – I can get a bag of 5 for $3 if they are on sale, or they cost $1.25 each. So they are a treat for me!

    I own a food processor and it is very handy for making pie dough and hummous (the two items are use it for the most). I also make tomato sauce in it too. I don’t think I could live without it now that I use it alot!

    The recipe did not indicate how many servings so I ate it all by myself. Its my lunch!!!!

    I have three food processors, each one a different size plus a Blentec. They all get used except for the large food processor. I probably have another blender around here too. That’s what happens when you blend 2-3 households together.
