Directions:
Place the chopped chocolate or chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 15 second bursts, stirring between each and watching carefully so that the chocolate does not burn. When chocolate is almost completely melted, remove it from the microwave and stir until smooth. Set aside and let cool until just barely warm.

Halve and pit the avocados, scoop them into a food processor fitted with a steel blade or use a high-powered blender. Add the melted chocolate, cocoa powder, almond milk, vanilla extract, and salt. Blend until very smooth and creamy, stopping to scrape down the bowl as needed. Taste and add a few teaspoons of agave if additional sweetness is desired.

Spoon into glasses. Enjoy immediately as a pudding or for a thicker mousse like consistency refrigerate until well chilled, 2 hours or overnight. Serve topped with raspberries, strawberries, whipped cream or chocolate shavings.

The mousse can be stored in the refrigerator, covered for up to 1 week.
