Avo-cocoa mousse

Here's a Paleo dessert I found that sounded so flippin weird and gross that I actually had to make it and try it out. Doesn't that chocolate mousse like yummy? Of course it does. Would you believe it's an avocado??? Well it is. I wouldn't lie to you. Here's the recipe.

2 ripe avocados, the meat scooped out of the shell
3 tablespoons honey or agave (more or less to taste.)
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (i'll put a little less in next time)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt

Instructions:Use a blender or food processor to blend the avocados until smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend again until everything is combined. Add more or less honey/agave according to your taste. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving. I sliced some bananas and layered the mousse inbetween and sprinkled with coconut flakes. Pretty much satisfied my sweet tooth mouth! :)
