Chocolate Mint Avocado Protein Mousse

I know you won't be surprised to see this post.  When I first made the Mint Avocado Protein Mousse with vanilla Leanfit whey blend, I was sure it would be delicious in a chocolate version as well.

And I was right.  I finally made it up today and we enjoyed it for an afteroon snack while catching up on some tv movies... lazy Winter Sundays... gotta love them, right?

It makes up in about 2 minutes. I do let it sit in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to chill, and to torture myself with the wait... builds character I am sure!

But I was a bit put off by the color at first... the flavor is fabulous... the chocolate comes through loud and clear and the mint is perfect... and the avocado makes it creamy and rich... but the color... more like caramel than chocolate, would you agree?

Once you get past that, it is clear sailing... or spooning... all the way to the bottom of the dish!

For the recipe and instructions you can refer to the original post here... Mint Avocado Protein Mousse... and let me know which is your favorite... vanilla or chocolate?  Hmmmm... might have to make them both again, just to be sure!  Of course all I did was sub the chocolate whey for the vanilla whey in the recipe... no other changes.

Oh, and just a reminder for my Weight Watchers buddies this mousse counts as only 4 Smart Points. Now that is a bargain!
