Guilt Free Chocolate Mousse
When we cleaned up our diet, we thought there was no way that chocolate mousse would be back on the menu! Thankfully, we discovered it’s possible to make a delicious chocolate mousse that isn’t laden with sugar and cream. This mousse gets it thickness from banana and avocado – don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it – and its sweetness from the banana and honey. Plenty raw cacao powder also gives this mousse a rich, chocolate flavour.
If you’re looking for a super easy, healthy dessert option (and you have a love for chocolate), you won’t be disappointed.
This recipe is nice and simple, and packs a high dose of potassium, magnesium, antioxidants and healthy fat. It’s also reasonably low in sugar – you could literally eat this for breakfast if you wanted!
- 1 avocado
- 1 large banana
- 6 tablespoons raw cacao powder
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 3 tablespoons coconut cream (from the top of the can)
- 1/2 tablespoon vanilla paste or extract
- Pinch of sea salt
- Fresh berries to garnish
- 1 piece dark chocolate (optional, for chocolate ribbons).
1. Add your avocado, banana and raw cacao powder to a food processor and process until smooth and fully combined
2. Add the honey, coconut cream, vanilla and salt to the mixture and process for a further 10 seconds
3. Place the food processor bowl containing your mousse into the fridge, for a minimum of 30 minutes, or until you’re ready to eat!
4. Spoon into bowls and garnish however you like – we like this trick using our veggie peeler to make some dark chocolate ribbons. We find that it works best when the chocolate is at room temperature.
