One of the things I missed most when I embarked on the Coeliac, Food Allergy and Intolerence journey, was desserts and other sweet treats. This chocolate “mousse” is a big hit with my children, and it certainly hits the spot for me as well. It is packed full of goodness and is lovely and rich, so a little goes a long way!
Gluten, dairy, nut, egg and soy free.
1 very ripe avocado
1 large ripe banana
1 table spoon maple syrup (rice malt syrup or honey also work well, you can add extra if you prefer it sweeter)
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence
2 teaspoons of coconut oil (this helps add richness and body. You can leave it out if you prefer)
1 1/2 tablespoons of raw cacao powder.
Pinch of sea salt
Place all of the ingedients into a jug or bowl. Blend with a stick blender for a few minutes, until light and fluffy.
Serve with fresh mixed berries.
