I love Avocados, but I’ve never been really one to try them in my desserts. I’ll have avo on toast, guacamole and even just eat it straight with a spoon any day. But Avocado and sweets?… no thanks.

My daughter has always loved Avocados from when she was a baby. She still eats them as a snack and has just started asking me to drizzle some honey on her avocados, something she saw her Nanabapa doing one day, she tried it and loved it!

So I thought I’d give a sweet avocado recipe a try! This chocolate mousse is rich and creamy and just sweet enough. It's also super easy to make, just throw everything in the blender and voila! 

So here is what you’ll need:

Ingredients 

(Makes 6 servings)

  • 2 avocados
  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • 4 tbsp. raw cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp. natural peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp. maple syrup
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • pinch of sea salt

Place all ingredients (except for the almond milk) in a blender or food processor. Slowly add and mix the almond milk until you have reached your desired consistency.

Make sure to keep the mousse in the fridge for a few hours before serving.

Serve up in individual serving cups and top with fresh coconut, whipped coconut cream and berries ;)

Enjoy!
