Chocolate, avocado and cardamom mousse
This decadent spiced chocolate mousse is rich and creamy but surprisingly much healthier than your standard chocolate mousse. Avocados act like cream giving it the lovely texture but without the saturated fat content.
|2||New Zealand Avocados, ripe|
|300 g||Dark chocolate|
|½ cup||Coconut milk|
|1 tsp||Ground cardamom|
|1 Tbsp||Manuka honey|
|1 handful||Fresh berries|
- Melt chocolate in a double boiler or in a heat proof bowl and set above a pot of simmering water.
- Process avocado flesh, cardamon and melted chocolate in a food processor whilst pouring in the coconut milk. Blend until smooth and creamy. Add honey if the mousse is not sweet enough.
- Spoon into 4 serving glasses and chill in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.
- Garnish with berries just before serving!
