Ok, I want to see a show of hands – who here loves a good chocolate dessert?
I mean there’s just something about that rich, satisfying, velvety smooth, sweet treat that really hits the spot, right?
The problem though, is your typical chocolate dessert usually comes laden with a LOT of sugar, which, let’s be real, isn’t so great for your waistline.
So, how do you get your chocolate dessert fix without all that added sugar?
(Hint: Try out the recipe below!!)
Trust me, if you’re as much of a chocaholic as me, you’re going to want whizz up my Next Level Chocolate Mousse.
Give it a whirl, I’d love to know what you think 🙂
Next Level Chocolate Mousse
- For the base:
- 2oz (60g) chopped frozen banana
- 3oz (85g) chopped frozen avocado
- 1/2 scoop (15g) chocolate protein powder
- 1 tbsp (7g) raw cacao powder
- 50-100ml unsweetened almond milk
- For the topping:
- 1 tbsp (7g) cacao nibs
- 1 tsp (5g) bee pollen (omit if you want yours to be vegan)
- 1 tsp (5g) unsweetened desiccated coconut
- 1 tbsp (7g) unsweetened coconut chips (or flakes)
Place all the base ingredients - the frozen banana, frozen avocado, protein powder and cacao - into your blender (except the almond milk).
Add half of the almond milk and begin to blend - be patient! You may need to pulse several times and scrape down the edges of the blender as you go. Gradually add more almond milk a little at a time to help it blend and become smooth.
Once fully blended and silky smooth, spoon into a bowl and refrigerate for at least an hour to let the mousse firm up a little more.
When you're ready to serve, lovingly and artfully arrange the toppings as you desire, then devour! 🙂
