4. Chocolate Avocado Mousse

Many healthier versions of chocolate mousse call for tofu, but this one depends on avocados and is a member of the 10 Deliciously Radical Avocado Recipes club. Although technically avocado is a fruit not a vegetable, its use in primarily savory dishes often imparts vegetable status. Be warned, this dish is not lacking in fat, but avocado fat is so supremely healthier for the body than dairy fat, so, there's that.

  • 4 ripe avocados
  • 1 cup agave nectar
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Remove flesh from avocados and and cut into pieces, place all ingredients in a stand mixer (or food processor) and blend until light and smooth. Chill, top with Greek yogurt or vegan topping, and enjoy.
