The dessert solution? Vegan chocolate mousse, using.....wait for it.....avocadoes.
I will let you know how it comes out. This recipe calls for Stevia, but I am going to use sugar instead. So sue me.
Vegan Chocolate Mousse
Ingredients (serves 1-2):
- 1 large ripe avocado
- 1/4 cup raw cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup coconut milk or almond milk
- 2 tsp stevia (or other natural sweetener)
- 1 tsp natural vanilla extract
- Optional extras: toasted sliced almonds, chia seeds, frozen mixed berries, almond butter, cocoa nibs, coconut oil
Purée the avocado until smooth.
Mix together the cocoa powder and milk until combined and add to the avocado.
Stir in the stevia, vanilla extract, and any extra ingredients (toasted almonds add a lovely crunch, and frozen berries give the mousse a great fruity twang!) and mix well.
Transfer the mousse to individual bowls and store in the fridge until ready to eat.
