Vegan Chocolate Mousse
By Teresa Cutter
What's great about it
Another classic seasonal favourite from my Purely Delicious Cookbook. Made with only 5 ingredients, this is the most decadent instant Easter dessert! A simple treat bursting with antioxidants and powerful superfoods. Avocados are the hero of this dessert as they are an incredible source of heart-healthy fats, which can help reduce inflammation and enhance the absorption of the nutrients you eat. Healthy Chef Naked Chocolat is gluten, dairy and sugar-free, so it is deliciously good for you, every day!
1/2 cup organic maple syrup
2 large ripe avocados
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
1/2 cup Healthy Chef Naked Chocolat or cacao powder
Pinch of sea salt
- COMBINE all the ingredients in a high-performance blender. Place the maple syrup in first, followed by the avocado, vanilla, cacao and salt.
- BLEND for about 30 seconds until smooth and creamy. Add a splash of water or coconut water to make a lighter mousse.
- SPOON into a bowl and allow to cool and set in the fridge.
Notes and Inspiration
Adding 2 tablespoons of melted cacao butter or cold-pressed coconut oil will firm up the mousse.
Top with coconut yoghurt and cocoa nibs or coconut flakes.
