A few months back someone at work offered me a spoonful of this brown goop and said “You HAVE to try this!”
So I did..I mean..how could you resist such an offer?
She gleefully exclaimed “Its avocado!! Isn’t it amazing!?”
It was pretty good. It had mint extract in it which didn’t tickle my fancy but overall it was chocolately and creamy and also had that appeal of it having avocado which means “OMG it’s healthy!” (Right?)
I finally decided months later to try and make some myself. I checked some recipes online and they were all pretty awful..I can’t even lie.
Instead of “Its avocado!!” it was more like “Oh…its…avocado..”
I had a bunch of bananas I didn’t manage to get to on time before they started to turn a shameful color. My problem with the previous recipes was it was not sweet enough and you pretty much tasted raw cocoa and avocado..no bueno. I thought instead of turning these bananas into dessert that I can’t even have and end up having to pawn on others why not give the avocado mousse another whirl with bananas as a sweetener.
This attempt was much more tasty than the previous..Success!
A dessert I can have to satisfy my sweet tooth and have some benefits that I don’t have to feel guilty about having a little treat once in a while.
1 ripe banana
2 tsp organic stevia
2 tbs unsweet cocoa
1/2 tsp vanilla
pinch of sea salt
I ran all these ingredients in the magic bullet until smooth. Top with some berries or almonds and indulge!
