Banana Avocado Mousse

You might be thinking to yourself, "Hmmm... that's interesting..." Don't judge this dish by the name of it, stay with me on this one. This is an amazing dessert that will have your partner, roommate, or whomever you're sharing it with wondering what's in it. It tastes like mousse (!!) and is a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth at end the day with a healthier treat rather than something like ice cream. I told you a little ways back how I'm counting calories and fighting my sugar urges. I am trying really, really hard to use natural and raw sugar ingredients such as honey, agave, maple syrup in lieu of processed sugar. So far I've been successful and it's amazing how many great products are out there. I really wish we had a Trader Joe's here in Colorado, but Sprout's (and even Walmart!) have some great finds that I've fallen in love with. Agave sweetener is a must in my cupboard these days. I couldn't live without it!
