This Valentine's Day: Green is the New Red

Nothing says “Happy Valentine’s Day” like chocolate and strawberries. But do you know what says both “I love you and happy Valentine’s Day?” Peas of Mind’s Reinvented heart shaped strawberries and chocolate mousse. 

This month’s recipea is fun and quick to prepare, healthy, decadently delicious and totally adorable. Our secret in this recipea is to replace the heavy cream usually used in chocolate mousse with our favorite seasonal fruit: avocados. This Valentine’s Day show your family how much you love them by serving up this classic v-day dessert with a healthy and delicious twist.

2 perfectly rip avocados (we recommend using Haas avocados as they’re extra creamy)
¼ cup agave
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
a pinch of salt
16 oz container of Strawberries (cut into hearts)

Combine all ingredients into the blender and blend. You may need to add a bit of water to get the ingredients moving in the blender; if this is the case, only add water a tablespoon at a time so that you don’t add too much. The consistency should be that of a light whipped mousse.  For some extra fun, cut strawberries into heart shapes by cutting the tops off the tops then cutting the strawberry down the middle - length wise and finally cutting a small v-shape into the tops of each strawberry.
