The preparation is as easy as a spring breeze:

1. Combine the avocado, cocoa powder, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt in a blender or food processor. Blend until the mixture achieves a sublime smoothness.

2. If the mixture is too thick, a splash of almond milk can be added to achieve that ideal, airy mousse texture.

3. Once perfectly blended, allow the mousse to chill in the refrigerator for about an hour, letting the flavors intensify.

This vegan chocolate mousse is not just a dessert; it's a celebration of spring and a nod to Chocolate Mousse Day. As April 3rd draws near, let this delightful treat be a reminder to enjoy the beauty around us and the sweetness that life has to offer.
