There’s no doubt about it, Christmas is well and truly on its way and I, like most of Team Tea, revert to excited child mode as soon as the decorations are up.
If your Christmas traditions are anything like mine, food plays a big role in bringing everyone together. But, if the ghosts of Christmas past were to take a look at my yuletide eating habits, they’d gather quite quickly that I pretty much followed the tried and tested Buddy the Elf diet of candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.
However, this year my family Christmas will have to play a little differently as with a diabetic dad (and having been advised to avoid sugar myself) following the Buddy diet this year would make me a cotton-headed ninnymuggins.
Luckily, as a stubborn lady with a taste for experimenting and a penchant for scouring Pinterest, I’m not letting the quest for low sugar treats dampen my festive food consumption!
If you’re a regular HTC sweet treat reader you may have seen back in the summer my post on avocado cookies
, so it’s no surprise that my second favourite green hero (the Hulk is first, obvs… *HULK SMASH*) has been decked out for a wintry sequel with this gorgeously rich, surprisingly healthy chocolate mousse.
This recipe is a little early gift for all you diabetic lovelies, sugar fighting champs and wonderful will-powered folks who are planning on curbing your cravings this December. As an added bonus in the sweet treat stocking, this can easily become a treat for all our vegan and dairy free friends out there too simply by substituting the cocoa powder for raw cacao powder.
Enjoy the silky green chocolate avocado mousse goodness!
Chocolate Avocado Mousse
- 4 avocados, peeled and sliced
- 120g agave nectar
- 50g cocoa powder (replace with raw cacao powder for dairy free/vegan alternative)
- 150ml almond milk
- Put all the ingredients into a blender and blitz for 45 seconds - 1 minute or until smooth.
- Alternatively, pour all ingredients into a bowl and mix with an electric whisk until smooth. Mash the avocados beforehand if you are mixing this way.
- Feel free to add a little extra cocoa/cacao if you want your mousse extra chocolatey.
- Pour into bowls and leave to chill in the fridge for at least an hour.
