5-Minute Mousse

AVOCADO ~ Chocolate Mousse

INGREDIENTS

1 ripe large avocado
1/4 cup raw cocoa powder
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup coconut milk or almond milk
1 teaspoons stevia or other sweetener
1 tsp natural vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon natural almond extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
Optional extras: toasted sliced almonds, frozen mixed berries, almond butter, coca nibs, coconut oil, yogurt + chia seeds or chia powder (grind some chia seed with a mortar and pestle and then sprinkle the both on top of the dollop of yogurt). The sour will bring out the flavour of the sweet mousse.

INSTRUCTIONS

  1.  Place the chocolate chips in a  bowl.  Place over a small saucepan of barely simmering water.  Stir until the chocolate is melted and smooth, about 3 minutes.  Set aside to cool.
  2. Place the melted chocolate, avocado, cocoa powder, almond or coconut milk, sweetener,  vanilla,  and salt in a food processor.  Blend until smooth and creamy, scraping the side of the bowl as needed. Spoon into glasses or place in a pastry bag fitted with a star tip and pipe into glasses.  Refrigerate for at least 3 hours  (Can be prepared 1 day in advance or even frozen and defrosted at room temperature).
