Healthy Chocolate Mousse

Let’s be honest, dessert is usually not healthy. Refined sugars are usually the biggest culprit for weight gain, weight loss resistance, and so many important health conditions and symptoms.

But we can make dessert delicious and decadent without tons of added sugars. In this recipe we focus on healthy fats from avocado and coconut, plus the richness of the cocoa powder.

Healthy fats are essential for health. Forget what the low-fat craze of the ‘90s said. Numerous studies prove the benefits of healthy fats, and the harmful effects of sugar.

What are healthy fats?

Fats are classified as saturated and unsaturated. Saturated are solid at room temperature and unsaturated are liquid at room temperature. Two types of unsaturated are omega 3 fatty acids and omega 6 fatty acids. You want more omega 3s than 6s. Omega 3s are found in fish, shellfish, seaweed, chia seeds, flax seeds, hemp seeds, and walnuts. 

So what fatty foods are part of a healthy diet?

Aim to get fats from whole sources (not processed, packaged foods). Wild-caught fish, pasture-raised meats, organic grass-fed dairy, nuts, seeds, avocados, olive oil, coconut oil are great sources. Avoid vegetable oils, such as soybean, corn, cottonseed, canola, sunflower, safflower. Avoid anything “hydrogenated” or “partially hydrogenated” in the ingredient list. Avoid trans fats on the nutrition facts panel.
