Raw Chocolate Mousse with Almond Creme

By UrbanRemedy

Here is the ideal, no-guilt dessert for chocolate lovers.
The base is avocado, which builds up the yin in your body to prevent dry skin, hair, and eyes. The generous measure of antioxidant-rich cacao fights off pesky free radicals that can age your skin. For a low-glycemic dessert, choose stevia instead of dates and coconut palm sugar.
