For those chocolate lovers..just like me and at the same time willing to go healthy, here I give you a recipe I found in my vegetarian book looking for a solution to the "normal" and unhealthy chocolate mousse...
This is a vegetarian mousse..no eggs..no dairy products...just veggie!!
-2 ripe avocados
-Cocoa powder ( not sweet but the REAL cocao from the bio shop!
-Honey or agave syrup to sweeten the mousse
-To add creaminess you can put some almond milk in it or any other nut milk.
-Avocados can taste quite strong so you can add some vanilla zest to hide the "veggie taste"
And voilá...serve with bread or crakers or rise/spelt tartlet like I used....
This recipe is not only delicious but it also has nutritional value as avocados have the good fats (unsaturated) in them and have vitamins like vit.A, C, K and of the group B, folates, it is also a good source of vegetable proteins and carbohidrates. Avocados also provide minerals such as Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Zinc, Iron, Copper..etc
Cocoa powder is low in fats and although has low amount in vitamins it has some minerals that are necessary for us like Magnesium, Manganese, Potassium, Calcium, Phosphorus and Copper.
