Creamy nutrient-rich chocolate mousse

11 March, 2020
Avocado Chocolate Mousse Recipe

This rich and creamy chocolate mousse is made with avocado, so it’s packed with healthy unsaturated fat. At only 139 calories per serve, you can indulge without the guilt!

 Why it’s good for you

This is a healthier take on a classic dessert. It’s rich and creamy, so it still feels like you are treating yourself, with the added benefits of antioxidants. Avocado is high in unsaturated fat, so it has a naturally creamy texture as well as helping to reduce the risk of high blood cholesterol and help keep you feeling fuller for longer.

I joined as a CBHS member in 1978. Through many health events and challenges CBHS has always been there for me and my family. Their exceptional service over this time has always been appreciated.

I've not long joined CBHS from another fund, but so far I've been impressed by the super helpful and friendly staff, the higher claim limits and rebates at a very competitive premium, and how easy it is to lodge manual claims through the app. Thanks CBHS - you've won me over! 😃

I have been with CBHS since I began at CBA 15 years ago...Now I have three beautiful children, one who has a disability. Our top extras cover has been really essential for his early intervention. I do love the ease of claiming online.

What Our Members Think

I am relatively new to CBHS and am loving it already. I worked for a CBA subsidiary a long time ago but was still eligible to join. So much better that the for-profit funds - our premium is only a little more and we pay a lower co-contribution and get great benefits. I am loving the massage rebate for my partner and gym rebate for me!

I'm extremely happy with CBHS! I have been a customer for about six years. I think the price is reasonable. And i would refer you to my family and friends any day. Thank you CBHS!!!

Love CBHS as I never have to doubt that they've got my back when I need it. Been through other insurers who have limited options or limits, yet cost the same or more.
