Most children hate avocados, which is a shame, since avocados are an excellent source of healthful fats. It also has other unique health benefits.
Personally, I eat avocados every day. When it comes to my children, I have to play it smart. They love avocados in smoothies and popsicles, and now – in chocolate mousse 😉
Avocados are one of the safest fruits you can buy conventionally-grown, so you don’t need to purchase organic ones. Their thick skin protects the inner fruit from pesticides.
It only takes 5 minutes to make this healthy chocolate mousse, and it is so delicious!! 🙂 If you know someone, who struggles to get their kids to eat this heart-healthy fruit, please share this recipe. Enjoy! 🙂
