i also made an avocado cake. it was a disaster and i had to throw away the whole cake.
one recipe which caught my attention from long was the chocolate avocado mousse.
so again i bumped into the mousse recipe on kiran’s blog here. when i saw her pics and post, i knew i had to make it soon. the ingredients in her recipe were also easily available for me, except for agave syrup which i have substituted with organic cane sugar.
this is such a gorgeous looking and gorgeous tasting chocolate mousse.
you don’t get the avocado taste or flavor as the coconut oil, coffee & chocolate overpower the avocado flavors completely.
this is a super quick mousse as it gets done in 10 minutes. great to give a chocolate treat to yourself when you don’t have the patience to make something chocolate and yet want to have a quick chocolate goodie.
also a healthy mousse as cream is not used in making the mousse. a no-fat vegan and healthy chocolate mousse.
so when there is a chocolate attack just make this mousse and enjoy
- i have mentioned above no fat. when i wrote this, i meant the harmful saturated and trans fats which are found in dairy products but not there in avocado.
- chocolate does have saturated fats but the strange thing is that they do not raise the cholesterol levels. read more about this here.
- now for coconut oil. it too has saturated fats. but not all saturated fats are bad. the naturally occurring saturated fat in coconut oil is good for the body. read more about this here
