This chocolate avocado mousse is so indulgent yet super healthy and is a great way of getting avocados into the kids! Avocados are a high fibre food, packed with healthy fats and rich in minerals especially magnesium and potassium. They improve our heart health, hormone balance and digestive health and much much more....a truly amazing food and perfect for the creamy consistency we need in a mousse. This works just as well as icecream...just pop it in the freezer!
  • 1 large avocado
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 3 tbsp. cacao powder
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Tiny pinch of sea salt
  • ¼-1/2 tsp. peppermint or orange extract (optional - make sure it is a good quality one)
  1. Blend all the ingredients in a blender until smooth.
  2. Add a little raw honey, maple syrup or other sweetener like stevia if necessary.
  3. Fill little cups and enjoy as mousse or put into the freezer to enjoy as icecream, stirring every couple of hours if you can.
