A beautiful chocolate cream that turns into a real chocolate mousse or into small chocolate truffles!
I have recently spoken to my dear friend that was so excited she had relevealed a new ingredient that now puts in every single dish she makes - the AVOCADO!
Since she currently yearns for new ideas on how to use it, especially in desserts, here it is a real chocolate treat...and creamy as well! Just the way she likes it...
- 100 g dark chocolate (at least 75% cacao)
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 banana*
- 150 g coconut cream**
- 60 g walnuts
- 2 tbsp honey***
* If you don't like banana flavour, skip it. I personally enjoy it and think it enriches my cream with additional sweetness and nice flavour.
** Use the dense coconut milk from a can, store it in the fridge, then use the thick coconut cream.
*** I used acacia honey. I reccomend you use a similar mild honey or the same and not let it take over the taste.
Melt the dark chocolate over a "bagnomaria".
Peel the banana and avocado and slice it roughly.
Blend the walnuts to flour in a food processor. Stir in the avocado, banana, coconut cream, melted chocolate and honey. Pulse until a smooth creamy mixture forms.
Place the cream into your serving dishes with some fruit, nuts or something else. Serve immediately or chill in the fridge in order to get a nice mousse consistency.
Enjoy your homemade healthier chocolate mousse version!
