I had invited a group of friends over for dinner, and at the last minute a client asked me to come make a birthday cake with her children. While I was super excited to bake with the kiddos, I didn't have much time to bake a dessert for my own friends. I always have bananas in my freezer and avocados on hand, a light and creamy avo mouse would be perfect pre summer dessert. Now, I know the combo sounds strange, or maybe, it sounds like the best thing in the world and you already have your food pro plugged in. Trust me, it will evoke childhood memories of pudding packs just more sophisticated and packed with superfoods like cacao. I use rice malt syrup as my sweeter because it has the lowest glycemic index of all natural sweeteners and has no taste. That being said, I find it pair perfectly with unsweetened cacao but I would also use dates. Make sure they are chopped or soaked for ease in the food pro.
Prep Time 10-30 mins (if chilled)
- 1 Frozen Banana
- 1 avocado
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cacao powder
- 1/4 cup rice malt syrup or 5 dates
- 1/4 cup of non dairy milk, I used full fat coconut milk
- pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoons of vanilla
- Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Chill until ready to serve! Serve with strawberries.
