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).
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…
