A real vegan dessert that’s sure to impress your guests! This one replaces cream with avocado. Delicous and nutritious. Now this I have to try!
“This vegan dessert recipe is from Carolyn Scott-Hamilton of The Healthy Voyager, whose new cookbook, Global Kitchen: Plant-Based Recipes From Around the World is on shelves now.
Chocolate Mint Mousse
1 pitted and peeled avocado
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/3 cup agave nectar
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon mint extract flavoring
1/2 cup water (add small amounts incrementally if more is necessary to blend)
Fresh organic strawberries, washed and sliced
5 to 6 fresh mint leaves
In a blender, mix all of the ingredients until creamy, no chunks. Scoop into serving bowls and garnish with fresh strawberry slices and mint leaves. Enjoy! You can also freeze the mousse for later for a deliciously divine frozen delight.” -Ecostiletto, February 28, 2012.
