Chocolate Avocado Mousse

Crazy for chocolate? Well, you're in luck. Dark chocolate has a positive impact on heart health, improving blood flow and possibly boosting your mood due to its plant nutrients, called flavonoids. Just aim for at least 70 percent cacao and no more than 30 percent sugar. When buying chocolate look at the percentage of cocoa – the higher the percentage of cocoa, the greater the benefits.
