Quick-and-Easy Avocado Mousse

Simple Avocado Mousse

A great way to start your morning is with an avocado. This super-nutritious fruit is rich in potassium, fiber, and healthy fats. And now you can make it a highlight of your day with our delicious, easy-to-prepare Avocado Mousse!

Bright, refreshing, and full of flavor, you’ll love its creamy and light texture. It’s a simple mousse with minimal ingredients: creamy avocado, tangy yogurt, and a zesty kick of lime or lemon juice. And don’t forget a garnish of low-sugar berries, coconut flakes, nuts, and seeds.

Not nearly as sweet as most fruits, avocados are a good choice while following the Candida Diet. When shopping for avocados, look for ones that yield slightly to pressure when squeezed. A splash of lime or lemon juice perfectly complements the fruit and also keeps the light-green flesh from darkening.

This simple Avocado Mousse recipe makes one serving, but feel free to double or triple the recipe. You can share it with family or friends for breakfast, as a snack, or as a special, extra-healthy dessert. Enjoy!

    I so appreciate the recipes. I remember 30+ yrs. ago doing the anti-Candida diet without the internet. I don’t feel alone alone.
