This is a recipe you are going to have to trust me on, okay? Its main ingredient is avocado. Yep, avocado. Normally a savoury type ingredient – yes. However, its smooth, velvety texture makes it perfect for mousse.
I first saw the idea for this on Masterchef – anyone remember the hippy Skye Craig? She made one and astounded the judges and it inspired me to play around and make one myself.
No-one in the family is even going to cotton on to the fact that this is based on avocados. It doesn’t taste like avocados, it tastes like chocolate mousse!! Trust me !!
The other awesome thing about this recipe is that you don’t even have to cook it and it’s super quick to make.
Healthiest Chocolate Mousse Ever!
Vital Stats: Dairy free, gluten free, egg free, nut free, vegan
This is what you will need:
2 avocados sliced, choose organic if you can, as avocados are heavily sprayed
1/4 cup organic raw cacao powder
1/8 to 1/4 cup organic maple syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla extract (not vanilla essence – that stuff is nasty)
1/4 cup coconut milk or cream (choose one in a BPA free can)
1 tablespoon coconut oil
Now, here’s how to make it:
Mix all ingredients except coconut milk or cream in a blender, thermomix or a food processor for a few minutes until nice and smooth. You can also just mash it in a bowl with a fork if you have no electrical help.
Gradually add in the coconut milk to the consistency you prefer. Test it for sweetness….add more if you are a real sweet tooth.
That’s it. Super easy, super quick and perfect for those times when your avocados all ripen at once and you need to use them up. Serve with some fresh strawberries for dipping. Mmmmmmmm…….Healthiest Chocolate Mousse, EVER!
Trust me, trust me….. this is SO delicious. So, make some and report back. Tell me how much you LOVE it. 😀
