Raw, Vegan Choc Banana Mousse

I have always been a little skeptical of avocado in dessert. Last Friday, I purchased a raw key lime pie and all I could taste was avocado and lime. In my head, this made sweet guacamole. Not the greatest.
In this here dessert, the taste of the avocado is overtaken by the cocoa and the banana. The texture is silky smooth and looks exactly like mousse. In fact, I bet if I gave it to someone without telling them what it is, they wouldn't know the difference. I'm thinking of using it as a pie filling. Delish.

Time: 5 minutes.
Makes 2 Cups.

  • One really ripe banana.
  • One really ripe avocado.
  • 1 Tablespoon of cocoa/ cacao powder.
  • 1 Tablespoon of agave nectar (optional).

Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Stop occasionally to scrape down the sides.
Will last for a day if placed in the fridge in a sealed container. The outer layer will change colour to a darker brown, just like normal mousse, but it's still good (It's still good)...
