Healthy Chocolate Mousse - sugar free baby
I have heard and read about avocado being used to in all sorts of cooking, including smoothies and mousse. I thought I would take the jump and try it out as I had some plump ripe avocados in the fruit bowl.
I made this recipe up as I went along which meant I taste tested a LOT. I do believe that this recipe will put a smile on the face of even the 'sugar free cynic' ..
- 1/4 cup medjool dates (soaked)
- 2 tbs chia seeds
- 2 avocados
- 3 medium sized ripe bananas (not too ripe)
- 1/4 cup organic raw cacao
- 1/4 cup dessicated coconut
- 2 tbs coconut oil
- fresh blueberries/raspberries/berries in general (optional)
Start by pouring some boiling water over your dates so they are just covered. Add your chia seeds to this. Set aside for 20 minutes. Have a cup of tea. Or wine. I would choose wine.
Now, using a food processor, blend all ingredients until a thick paste forms.
Find some bowls/wine glasses and divide the mousse into four. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. This is a great recipe for making ahead of time. Serve with fresh fruit and/or a little sprinkle of coconut/cacao.
If kept refrigerated, the mousse will last well for 3 days.
