Updated: Apr 9




What if I told you that you could still enjoy a nice chocolate mousse for dessert and make it super nutritious?


Yes, this is possible and the recipe is super easy. It will only take you 5 minutes!



Ingredients:

- 2 ripe medium avoados or 1 large, peeled and pitted

- 2 tbsp of cacao powder or 1/4 cup of cocoa powder*

- 75-100g of dark chocolate (70% or more)

- 4-5 tbsp of milk of your choice - I've used unsweetened coconut milk

- 2 -3 tbsp of honey or maple/agave syrup

- 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract

- pinch of salt


Optional ingredients (makes it richer but also more calorie-dense):

- 1 tbsp of unsweetened peanut butter - for a slight nutty taste

- 1-2 tb of coconut cream - if you want to make it super creamy and rich

- toppings: grounded nuts or some shredded coconut

- 2-3 tb of lemon juice - to be used if you ever find the taste of the avocado to overpower the chocolate


Equipment: a blender


Method:

  1. Melt the dark chocolate using any of these 3 methods. I melted my chocolate over the stove.

  2. Mix all ingredients and blend for 1-2 minutes.

  3. Transfer to your bowl and refrigerate for 15 minutes to 2 hours before serving.

  4. When serving the mousse, you can top it up with some grounded nuts or some coconut.
