eggless banana chocolate mousse

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 πŸ™‚

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 goΒ 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. 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.

  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 πŸ™

    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. πŸ™‚

    • 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.
