Who says healthy chocolate mousse can’t be festive?
Alright, fine, “avocado banana chocolate mousse” doesn’t exactly scream Christmas, but hey, the red background is quite festive, no?
Either way, this is a recipe that I make on almost a weekly basis. Granted, I don’t always make it look all pretty in a coffee cup, but still. It literally takes like 2 minutes to throw together (which is less time than the average smoothie because you don’t actually have to rinse anything…).
This is the perfect kind of breakfast you’d want to have in preparation for perhaps a huge-ass Christmas brunch or dinner
or both. For one – it’s light and sweet without making you feel loaded and without giving you major energy crashes. Also – it’s vegan and sugar-free and raw and gluten-free and will fit pretty much every other dietary restriction you have.
The idea of eating blended avocado purée may seem horrifying to some, but I guarantee that you can’t taste it whatsoever. The flavor of chocolate and the light sweetness of the banana mask the taste of avocado, while still retaining its creaminess and superfood powers – win-win!
