Smart Sweet: Halloween Chocolate Cups

Halloween doesn’t always have to be about candy bars and candy corn. This ‘chocolate mousse’ dish is a healthy treat for your kids, and for the whole family to enjoy!

The avocado gives this dish its lovely creamy texture. The kids will love this one and will have no idea that they are eating mostly avocado which is full of natural polyunsaturated fats and nutrients such as potassium, magnesium, vitamin E, iron and zinc.

Use a high quality raw cocoa powder for a super anti-oxidant hit. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do and my little girl LOVES it as her special treat having no idea it’s all just goodness!

  • 4 tbsp cocoa powder
