Chocolate Mousse

1/2 cup soft pitted dates
4 TBSP maple syrup
1 TBSP coconut oil
1 1/2 TBSP vanilla
3 large avocados
12 TBSP or 3/4 cup cocoa powder

Soak the dates in warm water for 20 minutes.  Drain well and blend in a food processor with the rest of the ingredients until smooth.  Refrigerate any leftovers.

Optional variations:

*Add unsweetened carob chips at the end for a slightly chunky version.
*Delicious as a dip for strawberries.
*This thickens slightly when chilled.  Add a little cream and re-blend to thin it out if you'd like.
