Chocolate Mousse and Strawberries
I love the decadence of this Chocolate Mousse and Strawberries. It is addictive and so easy to pop one into your mouth and savour the rich smooth texture.
There are many variations on this recipe going around now and also in the raw food recipe collections, which means that you can make so many variations of this. 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 this will also help it set.
• 1/4 cup honey
• 2 ripe avocadoes
• 1 ripe banana
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1/3 cup raw cacao powder (I also use Dutch cocoa)
• Pinch of sea salt and cinnamon to enhance flavour
• Brown rice syrup
• Organic maple syrup
• 4 fresh pitted dates
Vanilla extract or
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
• 1 fresh vanilla bean, scraped out
Into a blender add in the honey, avocado, banana, vanilla, cocoa and spices.
Blend for about 30 seconds until smooth and creamy.
Place spoonfuls onto sliced strawberries for a luscious finger dessert food or spoon the filling into a bowl and allow to set in the fridge.
