Avocado Chocolate Ice Cream Parfaits

Trifle layered desserts are pretty but also easy and fun to make. I mixed all my favorite dessert ingredients for a special holiday parfait made with chocolate mousse with an avocado base, berries, marshmallows, nuts, and the best ice cream in the world! Feel free to mix around these ingredients or pick different toppings!


Ingredients:
4 ripe avocados
1 cup agave 
1 cup cocoa powder
1 TB vanilla
1 cup fresh raspberries
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 pint Coconut Bliss Ice Cream (I picked "Salted Caramel & Chocolate")
1 bag Dandies Vegan Marshmallows (heat just a bit for a creamy version)

Chocolate Mousse:
Puree first four ingredients in a blender and set aside.

Parfait Assembly:
Assemble in individual clear dessert cups. In each cup, start making 1" layers of each item. Start with ice cream, then chocolate mousse, then raspberries, nuts and marshmallows. Repeat. Eat.
