Avo Banana Mousse, an oldie but a goodie!
I'm sure you’ve already heard (or tried) a recipe similar to this. So I haven’t tried to reinvent, add a secret ingredient or pretend that it’s something that it’s not!
I’m also not pretending this tastes like a mousse you’d have in a restaurant, or one that uses cream and caster sugar. But I will tell you that it's delish, the consistency is perfect, it is super chocolatey, easy to make, filling and satisfying!
Fun Fact - Cocoa was something you drank up until about 150 years ago.
Chocolate mousse was one of the first recipes I made when I started to experiment with lactose-free homemade desserts. I think there is a place for all food but I really do love that an avocado and banana mixed with some honey and cocoa powder can make something so delicious.
I also love that a 1 serving contains a serve of vegetables, ½ serve of fruit and fibre.
Call me crazy.. but I think that’s pretty awesome ;)
I really do love playing around with unprocessed and mostly wholefood ingredients and seeing what they can be turned into… and I think this mousse is the epitome of that.
I hope you enjoy!
Note: For allergies & intolerances this mousse is free from dairy, lactose, gluten, wheat, eggs, dairy, peanuts and tree nuts.
