It took me quite a few tries to perfect the recipe, but I finally got there and it was well worth the wait (not that I minded all the taste testing I got to do in the meantime). This mousse is made with avocado so it has excellent nutritional value and is sweetened with a small amount of maple syrup so it won't leave you feeling like you have a sugar overload. To be honest, it's so guilt-free that I sometimes eat if for lunch.
It is made with a handful of cashews, but the recipe probably does work just as well without the cashews if you can't eat the nuts. You will need a good food processor, I use my Vitamix.
For 1 large serving of decadent Paleo chocolate mousse:
3/4 of a ripe avocado
2 heaped tablespoons of cacao
2 tablespoons of maple syrup
1/2 cup of coconut milk
one handful of dry roasted cashews
Place all the ingredients in your food processor and mix. You might need to stop the processor and scrape down the sides occasionally.
That's it! That's all there is to it, it's so super easy. Now go and enjoy mamas! Of course, as always, I'd love to hear how it goes if you give it a try :)
