Vegan chocolate orange mousse cake

It's bank holiday weekend so why not indulge in this decadent dessert - rich, creamy and chocolatey and yet no dairy or added sugar. The avocados are a source of healthy monosaturated fatty acids, vitamins A and E (which are antioxidants), and omega 9 so this dessert is healthy.  Eating avocados also helps keep your skin hydrated and antioxidants in avocados helps prevent damage that leads to wrinkles. Go on spoil yourself!
