Chocolate mousse

This is a delicious, healthy version of the ever popular chocolate mousse. It contains just four key ingredients – sweet, ripe bananas, avocados, almond butter and cocoa powder. Serve it with summer fruits and everyone will love it but they may be hard pressed to guess what it is made from - unless you tell them.

Good quality peanut butter can be used instead of almond butter and if the mousse is a little thick you can always add a drop of OatDrink if you like your chocolate mousse a little softer.

Serves 4


3 medium sized, ripe bananas

2 small or 1 large, ripe avocado

80g almond butter (rough or smooth)

30g cocoa powder

1 tsp vanilla essence

100g of berries i.e. raspberries, blueberries, strawberries

Maple syrup to drizzle (optional)


Peel and roughly chop the bananas and place in the bowl of a food processor. Cut the avocado/s in half, remove the stone/s and scrape the flesh from the skin. Add the avocado flesh to the food processor together with the almond butter, cocoa powder and vanilla essence. Process these ingredients for 30 seconds or until you have a smooth puree.

Divide the chocolate mousse into serving bowls or glasses and top with berries and drizzle with maple syrup.
