Make a mousse with no mess and no fuss

I LOVE this mousse. There are many variations of this recipe going around now and also in the raw food recipe collections, which means you can make so many variations. One thing I really like is that there is no messy whisking then folding. This is so easy. I like to top this with toasted chopped macadamia nuts. You can also use a couple of tablespoons of coconut oil as this will also help it set.

Chocolate mousse

Makes 3 cups


1/4 cup honey or brown rice syrup or organic maple syrup, or you can use 4 fresh pitted dates

2 ripe avocados

1 ripe banana

1 tsp vanilla extract or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or 1 fresh vanilla bean, scraped out

1/3 cup raw cacao powder (I also use Dutch cocoa)

Pinch of sea salt and cinnamon to enhance flavour

METHOD: In a blender add the honey, avocado, banana, vanilla, cocoa and spices.

Blend for about 30 seconds until smooth and creamy.

Place spoonfuls on sliced strawberries for a luscious finger dessert food or spoon the filling into a bowl and allow to set in the fridge.
