Every Tuesday, we scan Food52′s delectable menu of recipes for the healthiest picks they’ve got—bringing you seasonal, scrumptious fare that’s really good for you.

Indulge yourself with this rich, dairy-free dessert. Coconut milk provides protein, and nutrient-rich avocado is a great source of healthy fats.  It’s no kale salad, but you’ll only need a tiny portion to revel in the sweet, creamy goodness.

Avocado Chocolate Mousse
Serves 2-4

1 ripe Hass avocado
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate
1/4 cup thick coconut milk (from the top of the can)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons agave syrup
1 pinch sea salt

1. In a heatproof bowl, melt the chocolate in the coconut milk over hot water, or in the microwave. Stir until smooth, cool slightly.

2. Put remaining ingredients in a food processor bowl, and add cooled chocolate mixture. Blend until completely smooth.

3. Spoon into dessert cups. Serve well-chilled, with a dollop of coconut cream, if desired.
