When you’ve been told that you have to take gluten off the table, desert may seem like it’s a thing of the past. The reality is that you can still enjoy chocolatey goodness as long as you know how to create delicious flavors without using the ingredients that are on the “no-no” list.

This delicious chocolate mousse recipe is very easy to make, and will serve two. It’s loaded with fruit and vegetables, which is the added bonus to making this fantastic dessert. It’s also an easy recipe that you can double, triple, or even quadruple so that you can serve a large group of people. You don’t have to tell them that it’s gluten-free – you can surprise them after they rave about how good it tastes.

  • 1 avocado, pitted and sliced

If you want to be extra decadent with your dessert, you may want to serve it with sliced bananas, strawberries, or even cacao shavings on top.

This is one of the easiest desserts you will ever able to make once you have collected all of the ingredients. Even if you decide to leave out a few ingredients, such as flax seeds or Chia seeds, still going to be fantastic – and you may even want to make a few modifications here and there, such as changing out the sweetener or replacing almond butter with cashew butter or organic peanut butter.

It’s not going to get much better than this. While you can always find gluten-free cookies and cupcakes, they take time to bake – and you may not want something quite like that. Mousse is a whole lot like pudding, and with all the healthy optional items you can load into the mousse, it’s healthy and delicious, so what’s not to love about it?
