Avocado almond chocolate mousse.

mousse para guardar-1

One avocado has the potassium content of three bananas. But a half of an avocado, which is one serving, has 4.25gr of carbohydrates and one small banana has 22.8gr, making this recipe a good choice even for those dealing with diabetes.

Also, the oils provided by an avocado are colesterol lowering unsaturated fatty acids. One study of individuals with moderately high levels of cholesterol who ate a diet high in avocado showed significant decreases in total cholesterol and they also exhibited an 11% increase in healthy HDL cholesterol (Murray, 2005).

Another great thing about this recipe is that you can use the over-ripped avocado.

Recipe:

  • 1 ripe avocado 
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp. date paste or 2.5 big dates
  • 1.5 tsp. cinnamon powder
  • 3 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1/4 vanilla bean, or 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp. almond butter
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds for finishing

With a food processor or a hand blender start blending the avocado with the coconut milk. You can use almond milk if you like. Add the date paste or soaked dry dates if they are too dry. Add the rest of the ingredients and finish with the chia seeds or granola for a layer of good fiber and a nice texture.

      Yes! and if you see any bad parts,… it dosen’t mater! put every part of the avocado. You can always adjust this recipe’s flavor. Add more cinnamon if you have a very strong avocado flavor, or more almond butter.

    These make great Pudding Pops! I just filled some little dixie cups with the pudding, let them chill about 1/2 hour, then stuck popcicle sticks in the center and froze for a couble of hours. My little granddaughter loved them! I didn’t have maple syrup, so I used agave instead.
