Are you struggling to find healthy dessert options that aren’t loaded with refined sugars and flours, crappy oils and other nasty junk?
Healthy treats can be a hard find, which is why I like to get creative in the kitchen and whip up my own delicious and squeaky clean desserts.
Avocado mousse is one of my go-to healthy desserts. It’s super quick and easy to make – and packed with nutrients and healthy fats.
There are so many foods and spices you can blend with avocado to create the perfect creamy mousse-like dessert, so have some fun and play around with different combinations of flavours.
Check out my rich and creamy Tiramisu Avocado Mousse recipe. It’s gluten and dairy free making it a perfect low-carb, Paleo and vegan friendly dessert.
Tiramisu Avocado Mousse
INGREDIENTS: (serves 1)
1 ripe avocado
1 shot espresso (cooled)
1/4 cup coconut milk (canned, full fat is best)
1 tsp cacao powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
A pinch of stevia, a couple of dates or 1 tsp. maple syrup (for added sweetness)
Toppings (optional): Cacao nibs, shredded coconut, cacao powder
1. Place all ingredients (except for toppings) into a food processor or high speed blender.
2. Blend until you reach a smooth and creamy consistency.
3. Chill avocado mousse in the fridge for a cool dessert.
4. Add toppings and enjoy.
Want to turn this healthy dessert into a nutrient-dense breakfast? Add 1 scoop of protein powder to the list of ingredients and blend. If you’re using my recommended PurePaleo protein, I suggest leaving out the added sweetener since the protein powders are sweetened with stevia. Add more coconut milk if needed.
