Meet your new favourite mousse! Chocolate Avocado Mousse.
This awesomeness is always a go-to when I'm craving sweet, smooth, chocolatey comfort. Luckily this dish satisfies my craving, while nourishing my body AND soul.
There are just 4 simple ingredients- avocado, banana, cacao powder, and honey:
These mushy green gems are chalked full of good quality fats, vitamin E and magnesium to make you feel satiated and relaxed with beautiful skin.
Another mushy gem, bananas are known for their high levels of potassium. Potassium is a mineral necessary for good function of the heart and kidneys.
So cacao powder, cocoa powder and carob powder are three very different "chocolate" powders. All three are perfectly ok to use in this recipe, I'll let you decide which to use:
I prefer to use carob powder because of the health benefits and the "no caffeine content." I do find it lacks the bitterness of a familiar chocolate flavour though, so if you're feeding it to kids, the cacao or cocoa powder might work better- especially of it's their first time trying it.
Honey is considered a whole food sweetener because of it's high nutrient and enzyme content. Always buy organic or wild unpasteurized and local when you can.
Ok, so now you know how good it is- here's how to make it:
Chocolate Avocado Mousse
4 medium sized ripe bananas
3 very ripe avocados
1/4 cup of cacao powder
2 tbsp of honey
Blend together in a food processor or place in a large bowl and use a hand blender.
**So I need to add a few little notes about this recipe:
