Again like some of the quick recipes on the blog, this one too is quick. So when you have unexpected guests or have a chocolate craving and you have ripe bananas at home, prepare this mousse. Trust me you won’t regret, if you and your guests love bananas 🙂

Of course, you do have to Give a few hours for the mousse to set. till then all you need to have is patience. The dessert would also equally go well with kids. Few more delicious mousse recipes on blog are:

For the cream, I have used amul cream and it worked like a charm. I don’t get whipping cream here. But if you do, then you can add whipping cream.

Adding sugar is optional. If you like the bitter taste of chocolate, then no need to add sugar. However, for a sweet taste, I do recommend adding sugar. The addition of sugar also depends on the sweetness of the bananas. You can use regular milk chocolate slab or dark chocolate. Dark chocolate tastes very good.

To make this mousse, you just need a blender. A hand held blender also works well. Melting the chocolate can be done in a double boiler or in the microwave. I have shown both methods in the pics below.

I have adapted my Mango mousse recipe to make this quick banana chocolate mousse. I have made this recipe a couple of times for dessert and it was liked by everyone.

How to make banana chocolate mousse

1. First heat water in a pan.

2. Then take chopped chocolate and a bit of cream in a dry small pan which can fit inside the pan in which water is being heated. The water should just touch ½ inch of the pan from below. Take care of the hot water does not spill in the chocolate. The powder stuff that you see is instant coffee (i used bru coffee). You can also add it directly to the bananas. I added half of the instant coffee now and half later.

3. Place the pan with the chocolate on top of the boiling water. The heat from the boiling water will begin to melt the chocolate.

4. Keep on stirring with a spoon or spatula, till all entire chocolate is melted.

5. You can also microwave the chocolate on high power for upto 45 seconds to a minute. If some bits of the chocolate is not melted, then just keep on stirring till the chocolate bits are melted. No need to microwave again as the food keeps on cooking even after we remove it from the microwave. The chocolate would be cooking and you just keep on stirring it, till all is melted. A pic of chocolate microwaved below. Notice the difference in the consistencies. This one looks like its cooked more 🙂 allow the melted chocolate to become warm or cool completely.

6. In a blender or mixer, take the bananas, sugar, instant coffee and cinnamon powder. You can also add vanilla essence if you want.

  3. Hi
    My mousse hasnt set even after 7 hours of refrigeration. Can you suggest anything to salvage the mousse? We dont want to drink the mousse 🙁

    Regards
    P.S. Thank you for the loads of delicious recipes. Have tried many and am a regular follower of your blog. Keep up the good work. 🙂

    1. try whipping or blending it again for two to three minutes. collect the mousse in a blender and whip it again. this will give a creamier and thick consistency. let the mousse be cold when you blend it.

      thanks and welcome.

  4. Hi…. I am a fan of your recipes. They are easy to follow and doesn’t require fancy ingredients. I tried this recipe. The taste was awesome but the mousse didn’t set. Why?

    1. the cream has to be thick. when using amul cream don’t add the watery part. only add the thick cream.
