In the past I have tried different type of chocolate mousse and although they were all delicious in their own right they never felt like the “real deal”, you know what I mean, right?
This chocolate mousse is the final combination of all my previous attempts, it’s super easy to make and it just so decadent, rich, thick but fluffy at the same time, for me it’s just the ultimate, dairy free and healthy chocolate mousse.
The best thing about it is that you can enjoy it without any guilt attached as it’s made of only wholesome ingredients and as usual you can decide how much sweetener you want to add to it. It’s also the perfect dinner party dessert as I promise you nobody will ever think that is vegan and actually good for you!
I love topping it with fresh berries and coconut chips and for an extra indulgence I love to drizzle melted dark chocolate on top, the contrast between cold and hot is just to die for! J
Makes 2 pots
1 ripe avocado
1 very ripe banana (spotty skin)
1 heaped teaspoon of almond butter – you can also use cashew butter
2 heaped tablespoon of coconut milk – For this recipe is very important to use the coconut milk from a can and to use only the solid part. If you buy organic, without any emulsifier,coconut milk it will normally be solid on top so you can just scoop it out with a spoon. If you buy regular coconut milk make sure to put the can in the freezer the night before and that should work the trick.
2 tablespoon of coconut syrup or sweetener of your choice (it has to be liquid)
2 tablespoon of raw cacao powder
Toppings (all optional but all delicious):
Melted dark chocolate
This recipe couldn’t be simpler! Peel the banana and the avocado and place them into a blender with the rest of the ingredients. Blend until smooth. You want a thick and silky consistency. Scoop the mousse out of the blender and divided into glasses or dessert pots and place them in the fridge for an hour. This will help to thicken up even further, resulting in a super creamy, dense and chocolately mousse!
Remove them from the fridge and top them with the fresh berries and coconut chips. To finish drizzle them with the melted dark chocolate and enjoy!
