Avocado Chocolate Mousse

I tried this mousse for the first time at The Baking Room‘s first edition launch event. They were served in tiny glasses and they looked beautiful, and so chocolatey. And the taste?  Silky, decadent, chocolate goodness. Their recipe was featured in their magazine, and I had been wanting to make it at home ever since for my husband, who as I have mentioned before is very conscious of sugar and fat content in the recipes I make at home. He’s a crossfitter.  Enough said.

I tweaked TBR‘s recipe a tiny bit, by using natural honey instead of agave and maple syrup. And I also left out the raisins and added a bit more chocolate to the recipe. This is so easy to make, and it tastes so decadent! No one would believe it’s healthy, and it’s a great option if you’re having a dinner party at home. Serve it up in tiny glasses, because trust me, a little goes  long way. You can decorate them with some slivered almonds, or silver nonpareils.

Oh, and if you want to make this recipe completely vegan, use soy milk instead of 2% milk.

Zucchini Lasagna

In my attempt to make healthy meals at home, I came across this recipe for Zucchini Lasagna. Instead of pasta you use thin slices of zucchini, which makes it a much healthier option and there is really no flavor sacrifice here… it’s a tasty, kid approved recipe. As with the zucchini noodle recipe, I had also been meaning to try it for a long time, but I had felt discouraged when I read that you had to let the salted zucchini strips sit for a while, and then dry them up before assembling your lasagna. It’s a weekday… I’m busy, I don’t want extra steps. Then one day I saw a video by Everyday Food and noticed that they didn’t do anything to the zucchinis but slice them up, and it seemed to work out just fine. So here it is guys, zucchini lasagna… with no extra steps to prep the zucchini.  I hope you try it, we’re sure you’ll enjoy it!
