NOT YOUR USUAL CHOCOLATE MOUSSE + LIFE WITHOUT BROADBAND


My internet has been down for over a week now. Though I still had 3G on my phone, it wasn't the same. I can't put together a blog post on the mobile, for one, and when you've only got a small screen to work with, reading blogs is less fun and online shopping more tricky! I think the whole experience was good in that I wasn't aware if I was missing out on anything or not. A hot new "must have" in a fashion boutique could have come and gone and guess what? I'm still here. And I don't feel any less fashionable for it. My wallet has won and I've gotten more done! I'll remember that if I find I'm saturating myself with web content in future.

Anyway, onto the recipe! This is a bit of a vegan dessert staple, in my opinion. Like the one ingredient ice cream I posted about, it's really simple to prepare and as fun as the real thing, except healthier. All you need is:

1 large or 2 small avocadoes
2 tbsp Cacao powder
2 tbsp maple syrup or other sweetener
1 tsp vanilla essence

Blend the avocado until smooth, before adding the rest of the ingredients and blending again until combined. The avocados I used were quite large and thus overpowered with their flavour, so I added more cacao and vanilla than I've prescribed here. Let your taste be the judge! This mousse is wonderful served with crushed nuts, raspberry coulis, or chocolate shavings. Bon appetit!
