    Sounds scrumptious. Do you have a substitute for maple syrup? It’s not available in the Basque Country 🙁 Thanks.

    I will definitely give this a try. I love chocolate mousse.

    I wanted to try this too, being very gluttony … but …I have never eaten the avocado and I do not know what taste to expect, can anyone tell me which other fruit looks like in terms of taste?

    • Bojana Jankovic

      Thank you for the question. Honestly, I don’t even taste the avocado in this. It’s rich in omega 3 fatty acids and is creamy/buttery, for the lack of a better description. It really just adds texture, rather than taste. Anyone have any other input?

    I recently discovered your recipe and despite the surprise of finding avocados, I was pleasantly surprised so thank you Bojana for this.

    I also test using
    * 150g dark chocolate pastry
    * 150ml of chickpea juice
    * 30g to 60g of powdered sugar according to preferences
    * vanilla sugar
    * 1 pinch of fleur de sel (I do not know if it’s only sold in France)
