Well rest assured because this dessert is so good I swayed a classroom of doubting preschoolers with its chocolaty decadence. Desserts are not my thing. We know this. I would rather have potato chips. That was until this Chocolate Avocado Mousse came into my life. It’s a game-changer. I know it sounds weird but trust me, it is wildly delicious. It’s also ridiculously easy to make which, if you haven’t caught on, is must in my book. The foundation is nothing more than a few, whole food ingredients and it will be ready to eat in less than 5 minutes. Grab a spoon and line up by the blender — it may never make it to the bowl.

Quinoa Breakfast with Strawberries, Pistachio and Chocolate

My mission as a chef and dietitian is to inspire people to create meals that taste great and are great for you too.

They have spent endless hours in the kitchen curating unique ingredient pairings and flavor profiles for their new line of bars. These bars are proof that wholesome and delicious are not mutually exclusive! I love how Curate combines nourishing ingredients to create wonderfully surprising, flavorful combinations that are really satisfying and taste great. From the bright pop of orange zest to the crunchy texture of quinoa and the smooth creaminess of almond butter, the flavors and ingredients in the Curate Irresistible Dark Chocolate bar, inspired me to create this breakfast cereal. Bonus, you can probably whip this up with ingredients you have hanging around your house!
