Recently Finn has been asking me to read the book “Chocolate Mousse for Greedy Goose” by Julia Donaldson. Every time I read it, he asks me if we could make some chocolate mousse. This week we finally got round to making some and it was worth the wait. After seeing avocado chocolate mousse recipes on pinterest I knew that I wanted to make my own version. The only other ingredients we used were banana, dates and some cocoa powder. There is no refined sugar in this recipe, just fruit and cocoa. It is quick and simple to make and we both thought it tasted delicious.
We started by processing banana and dates together and then added avocado and cocoa. Finn didn’t seem phased that an avocado was going into his dessert (although avocado is one of his favourite foods so he was probably delighted.) I quickly transferred the mixture to a glass before Finn could eat it all but I did leave him with his favourite job – licking the bowl clean.
Chocolate Mousse (no refined sugar)
- 1 ripe banana
- 4 pitted dates (30g)
- 1 ripe avocado
- 3 to 4 teaspoons of cocoa powder (depending on taste)
- Add the dates and banana to a food processor and blend until a smooth paste.
- Add the avocado and continue to mix.
- Finally add the cocoa until fully mixed.
Delicious served with fresh strawberries or raspberries.
Finn is delighted that he has now tried chocolate mousse and loves the book even more!
