The best type of dessert is one you don’t even realise is good for you 😉

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 5 medjool dates, pitted + soaked
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk, refrigerated
  • tiny pinch of salt
  • cinnamon for topping (optional)
  • fresh berries for topping (optional)

Preparation

1. Scoop out the inside of the avocados and add to a blender. Next add dates, cacao, vanilla and salt. Open the can of coconut milk, being careful not to shake it. The cream will have risen to the top, leaving a thinner liquid at the bottom. Add 1/4 cup cream to the blender, saving the remaining cream in a small bowl. Begin to blend the mousse, stopping often to push down the ingredients and stir. If it’s too thick add liquid coconut milk a few tablespoons at a time until you reach the desired consistency.

2. Hand whip remaining coconut cream until it has a soft “whipped cream” texture.

3. Portion mousse into 4 custard cups and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving. Top with a dollop of coconut whipped cream, a sprinkle of cinnamon and fresh berries.
