Peruvian Power Foods: Superfood Avocado Cacao Mousse

If you are a chocolate lover like I am then you will love this chocolate mousse.  It’s made with all natural ingredients, super nutritious and amazingly delicious

Made with:

Avocado: Heart healthy and anti-inflammatory fat.

Cacao powder and nibs: Pure chocolate full of antioxidants.

Yacon syrup: Made from the root of the yacon plant, a Peruvian, sweet potato, glycemic index is 1. Yacon contains inulin fructoligossacharides (FOS) which are defined as non-glycemic carbohydrates. FOS is a prebiotic. Healthy micro-flora in the large intestine use prebiotics as food. FOS rich foods increase the overall gastrointestinal tract health and populate it with ‘friendly bacteria’ = Probiotics
