Chocolate mousse with avocado

Gluten free
How do you make chocolate mousse yourself, without whipped cream, without milk or even a chocolate bar? Well, maybe a little unexpected, but how about avocado? Avocado is fat and creamy on its own, making it the perfect replacement for whipped cream in this vegan recipe. The dates and banana make it sweet, and by using real cocoa, it becomes deliciously choco-like even without a chocolate bar. A tasty, pure chocolate mousse for anyone who eats plant-based. Not inferior to chocolate mousse from a container!
