We all get a sweet tooth craving every once in a while. This recipe is an easy way to satisfy that craving with just a few, simple ingredients while keeping things relatively healthy. The key ingredient in this recipe is avocado. Avocados not only add creaminess to help you attain the perfect mousse texture, but they also provide numerous health benefits. Avocados are rich in multiple vitamins including thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin. These vitamins help our bodies convert food into energy to keep us going throughout the day (WebMD). Adding fruits like bananas and strawberries, incorporates a great source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber into your diet (Butler, 2019).
