Valentine's Day is upon us, and for all you procrastinators out there, it's time to make with the drugstore chocolates and sidewalk stand flowers. But if your significant other is vegan -- or has other dietary restrictions -- you might be SOL. Handing a dairy-free eater a box of milk chocolates will place you squarely in the dog house.
The good news is, whipping up this four-ingredient raw chocolate mousse will make you look both thoughtful and considerate of his/her dietary needs. And it's damn delicious, too. Check out the easy recipe after the jump.

- 2 ripe avocados
- 1 cup Medjool dates-pitted

Serve the yumminess with strawberries or any other antioxidant rich addition. Because nothing says I love you (and I want you to live, like, forever) like heart-healthy sweets.
