Delicious Vegan Chocolate Mousse

Recently, I've been experimenting with vegan, vegetarian and raw food recipes. Here's one I came across in Everyday Raw Express, a beautiful "cook" book by Matthew Kenney. Please note that this chocolate mousse is quite rich and should be served in smaller portions.

Chocolate Hemp Milk Custard 
"Everyone is surprised and amazed by this rich dessert. It truly has the consistency of a traditional chocolate pudding or mousse and is both nut and coconut free. Best of all, it takes only moments to prepare. Please note that comments in the brackets are my own.

2 avocados, mashed
1 cup Hemp Milk (I used vanilla almond milk)
1 cup agave (I use organic, raw agave syrup)
1 cup cocoa powder (I use raw, organic cocoa powder)
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of salt (I used sea salt)

Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth. If preferred cool, chill in glasses or bowls before serving.

I served mine with sliced banana and crushed walnuts on top. It was absolutely delicious! Enjoy!
Serves 4-6
