Gone are the days of RIDICULOUSLY expensive avocados and thank goodness for that.
I am a huge fan of avocado and consume on average 1/2 an avo a day. On toast in the morning, in my banana smoothie for morning tea, in my sanga for lunch, on crackers for arvo tea, in a salad with dinner or hidden in a decadent chocolate dessert. You name it – there is always a place for avo.
And finally Australian avocados are in season and super ripe and ready for consumption at an affordable price. The other day I managed to get my hands on 2 seriously over ripe large avocados for $3 which only meant one thing… avocado mousse!!
This is without fail one of the most simple and impressive desserts to whip up and impress people with and all you need is a food processor. Give it a try for your next dinner party or make some tonight for a mid week dessert! Go on you deserve it!!
AVOCADO CHOCOLATE MOUSSE – Serves 2
(you can double, triple or even quadruple the recipe depending on how many mouths you are impressing)
1 whole large ripe avocado (the riper the better)
2Tbs cacao powder
Handful of walnuts, macadamia or cashew nuts
1tsp Vanilla extract
1/4tsp sea salt
Place ALL ingredients into the food processor and process until thick, smooth and creamy. Place in fridge for at least 1 hour to chill and then serve some cold generous servings and enjoy!!
Extra; if you like choc mint you can add some mint leaves or peppermint essence if desired!!
ps. you wont believe its avocado !!
