  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 3 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon grounded chia seeds *optional, I like it with it gives the pudding a thicker consistency.
  • A pinch of salt
  1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor. Blend until the mixture is completely smooth, scraping down the sides to even out the blend.
  2. Store in a airtight container to chill in the fridge for at least an hour or until ready to be consumed.
  3. To serve place the mousse in individual cups garnished with nuts, and fruits (it pairs particulary well with bananas, berries, and sliced oranges).

Note: This will keep up to 4 days in the fridge, or 6 weeks in the freezer. This mousse is a great all rounder; serves well as a creamy chocolate sauce, great as a rich chocolate ice cream alternative, to frost cakes with, and even as a face mask if you really want to (I recommend consuming it instead). Tip: You can tell when an avocado is ripe by holding it in your hard. If it’s hard – it’s not ripe. If it’s soft – it’s avocado mousse material. Though for normal consumption such you should look out for avocados with a slight give not more, not less.Keep it stored in the fridge to slow down ripening.
