Avocado Mousse

You know those cravings that just won't quit? Chocolate is one of those cravings for me and usually, cravings are a sign that your body is missing something. This could indicate a magnesium deficiency, which is a co-factor in neurotransmitter synthesis, so it literally makes us happier.  Why deprive ourselves of this?! The problem is, chocolate is often high in sugar so it isn't ideal for an after-dinner pick-me-up. Here is a recipe that is ideal for people with all types of food restrictions, low in sugar and high in omega fatty acids.  It is perfect for keeping you satiated.
