Not only is this pretty much the simplest of all the recipes on this blog, it’s also both one of the tastiest and one of the healthiest. When you’re after a sweet treat, but don’t want to utterly throw aside your healthy eating good intentions, this is the perfect recipe to turn to. Creamy, intensely chocolatey and highly satisfying.
It’s dairy free and easily made vegan (use maple syrup instead of honey) and also contains a hefty dose of raw cacao, with its numerous health benefits, and 2 helpings of fruit and veg per portion! Guilt free and gorgeous!
If you’re a little worried about the slight tang of avocado in this dish just serve it up with a few chopped strawberries, they magically eradicate any trace of avocado and leave you with pure chocolate loveliness.
If you’re still not sold on the avocado thing why not try Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding instead? Just as chocolatey but avocado free!
Avocado Chocolate Mousse
1 large ripe avocado
2 ripe bananas
3 tbsp raw cacao powder (or regular coco powder)

Pinch of salt
Whizz all the ingredients together in a food processor or blender and you’re done!!
Serve with fresh berries and a cheeky chunk of shortbread on the side.
