If you are anything like me, chocolate features pretty high on your eating agenda... while I'm not saying I have chocolate every day I do get those inevitable cravings for the sweet stuff.
I have really wanted to try out avocado mousse for a long time and using this recipe as inspiration, I just pumped up the nutrients a little adding a good teaspoon of spirulina ( a fab source of vegan protein). This is a great way to satisfy any cravings for something really sweet and sludgy, but in a MUCH healthier way. Yes, it may not look to pretty but sure tastes fab!
|It may not look that pretty, but it sure tastes out of this world and it so good for you!|
Ingredients for 2 medium portions
1 avocado (as ripe as you can wait)
1/2 large very ripe banana
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup cocoa
Pinch of salt and a large pinch of cinnamon
1 teaspoon spirulina (optional)
Simply mash well together - if you have a food processor I would recommend using it as my arm got a little tired after combining this lot!
Some alternative recommendations:
For more protein you could add in some extra protein powder, more spirulina or for more nutrients you could mix in some superfood antioxidant mix - the choices are pretty endless.
For a lighter mousse splash in some milk or water and mix well - and for a thicker mousse add more cocoa, a tablespoon at a time.
Serve alone or with some fruit - I think raspberries would go perfectly :)
And there we go! So simple! This would keep well in the fridge for up to 2 days but definitely chill for at least an hour before eating... if you can wait that long!
Happy Eating :)
