Avocado Chocolate Mousse

Alternative title: With Avocado-gate still very raw in the Slimming Club I did what I thought best…I smashed the hell out of two whole Avocados and added cocoa powder! I then sat there scooping every last smidgen from the (portioned) tub with a massive gormless grin on my face…While waving at them.

 

I’ve been searching for something sweet to help with the “I would give my left tit for a half a tub of cookie dough ice cream” cravings and had read on the interweb that avocado could be mashed into a mousse. A chocolate mousse. The problem with the recipes I came across were that they contained dates (I can’t look at wrinkly fruit…I just…urgh), or vanilla extract (I find this a bit sickly after a while) or nuts (I just can’t deal with nuts in my mouth…oh shut up). So, I decided to just throw some ingredients together and see what happened….

The result…Chocolate Fricking Mousse! (Pretty obvious given the title of the post).

 

Serves 2-4 (depending on portion size).

2 x ripe avocados.

1 x banana (yeah, I have no idea why I added this but it works for me). 

1/4 cup unsweetened soya milk (because I have this shit left over from my blueberry and ginger smoothie recipe).

1 tbsp honey.

2 – 2 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder (frankly I was happy with 2 tbsp, my human guinea pigs prefer 2 1/2).

Raspberries (because they are gorgeous with chocolate!…Actually just about anything is gorgeous with chocolate).

 

Ingredients for Mousse

Don’t tell my dairy loving brain that we’re using soya milk…It will throw a proper hissy fit!

 

As with the smoothie recipe – throw it in a bowl and blend! You may want to chill this for a bit in the fridge before serving…

Mousse!

2 seconds after this photo was taken the whole thing was in my face…There were raspberries up the nose and everything…Good times.

 

Enjoy!

Oh – Is anyone else majorly excited by the release of ‘Fortitude‘ (no this has nothing to do with my Eccleston obsession…Ok maybe it does a little bit…)?

The Cake Conundrum

6 Comments

  1. That looks super yummy. A friend of mine (and fellow avocado enthusiast) does an avocado chocolate cake that is positively out of this world.

    Have you tried blending up frozen bananas to ease your ice cream craving? I was skeptical the first time I read that trick but it really does turn out sweet and creamy and delicious.

  2. OK, although this looks good, and I am adventurous… something about avocado and chocolate in the same recipe just doesn’t sound right.

      I was skeptical too! It definitely sounds a peculiar combination, but I actually quite liked it. You can’t taste the avocado at all 🙂
