I’m pretty sure chocolate mousse is a guilty pleasure for the most of us. It is without a doubt one of my biggest guilty pleasures. If I go out for dinner, I always order the (unfortunately unhealthy) chocolate mousse. Most of the time it is filled with unrefined sugars, whipped cream and –obviously- chocolate. Once in a while these are okay, but for the ones who can’t live with a ‘once in a while’, I have created a healthy variant. Because that’s just who I am, haha.
This chocolate mousse is very creamy. This is due to the avocado. You might think, why an avocado in the chocolate mousse? Well, avocado is a wonderful source of healthy nutritions like protein, potassium and healthy fats. The protein gives you a satiated feeling which will stop the food craving. The potassium will help your natural digestion and take away toxic from your body. And the healthy fats will give us enough energy for the rest of the day. You can easily eat this chocolate mousse without any feeling of guilt.
Apart from the avocado, this mousse contains raw cacao powder, honey and coconut milk. Cacao powder is a little vitamin-bomb and therefore a super healthy snack! A perfect way to survive the Wednesday (and your chocolate cravings! Hihi).
What you need for one portion:
- 1 ripe avocado
- 4 tablespoons of coconut milk
- 1 teaspoon of raw cacao powder
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- Optional: raspberry’s and cacao nibs
How to make it:
- Take the skin off the avocado and cut the avocado in big parts.
- Mix the avocado in a blender, add the coconut milk, cacao powder and honey.
- Mix for 30 seconds until the substance is creamy and soft.
Enjoy your desert!
