Chocolate, Avocado & Cardamom Mousse
by Fresh Factory
This decadent spiced chocolate mousse is rich and creamy but surprisingly much healthier than your standard chocolate mousse. Avocados act like cream giving it the lovely texture but without the saturated fat content. Super simple and quick to make!
For the mousse
- 2 ripe avocados (we love NZ Avocados)
- 300g dark chocolate (good quality at least 60% cocoa) (we love Alter Eco)
- ½ cup Chantal Organics Coconut Milk
- 1 tsp ground cardamom seeds
- 1 tbsp raw honey
- Freeze dried berries
- Extra chocolate (shaved or grated)
1. Melt chocolate in a double boiler or in a heat proof bowl and set above a pot of simmering water (make sure the bowl does not touch the bottom of the pot to prevent chocolate burning)
2. Process avocado flesh, cardamom and melted chocolate in a food processor whilst pouring in the coconut milk. Blend until smooth and creamy. Add honey if the mousse is not sweet enough.
3. Spoon into 4 serving glasses and chill in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.
4. Garnish with freeze dried berries and anything else you like just before serving!
