This delicious dessert will fool just about anyone. It is Vegan, Gluten Free and healthy all while being chocolate? The secret ingredient for the creamy texture? Avocado. Ssssshhh, don't tell.

1/4 cup chopped walnuts
2 dates. pitted and chopped
2 Tbl unsweetened shedded coconut
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt

1. In a food processor or coffee grinder* combine flaxseeds, walnuts, dates, coconut, cinnamon, and salt. Pulse until the texture is to your liking. You can store up to a week in a sealed container. If you have extra is would be great in yogurt or ice cream.
2. Puree avocado, agave or syrup, and vanilla in a food processor or blender* until smooth. Refrigerate until chilled. It will keep for up to 3 days in a tightly sealed container.
3. Using a wine glass, martini glass or a small ice cream dish layer the mousse and the dry topping until the glass is full. Add your fruit on top.
*A food processor works best, but a blender will do.
