There are numerous variations of this mousse recipe but this is one of the easiest and fastest versions. This recipe is as rich and decadent as traditional mousse recipes that use thickened cream and eggs (mainly because of the creamy, buttery texture of the avocados). And because it’s totally free from dairy, gluten, wheat and refined sugar, it makes the perfect guilt-free treat. I love to make this for family and friends and see their reaction when they realise it’s mostly made from fruit!
Prep time: 5 minutes
3 avocados (I use the hass variety)
2 frozen bananas (1 if you don’t like the banana taste to come through, but some people quite like it)
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup raw cacao powder
1/2 cup honey or 4 soaked medjool dates
Pinch sea salt
Chopped strawberries and shredded coconut to serve
1. Mix all ingredients in a blender or food processor until creamy in consistency.
2. Serve or refrigerate and serve the next day.
Tip: Chill in the freezer for 15 minutes before serving this creamy and cold dessert.
