Recipe: Vegan Chocolate Mousse with Sea Salt
Sometimes you need a decadent recipe that you can make in less than twenty minutes. This one is it.
As we all know, there is no better combination than dark chocolate and sea salt. Made with avocados, the mousse is also vegan, but serve it to your non vegan friends and they’ll be so sold on the creamy chocolatey goodness that they’ll never notice the difference. You’ll get points for a posh dessert and no one will ever know that you made it in the frazzled half an hour that you had between your last work meeting and your dinner party.
Feeling extra fancy? Drizzle with a high quality extra virgin olive oil.
Vegan Chocolate Mousse with Sea Salt
- 2 ripe avocados
- 1 113g bar of 100% cacao, unsweetened baker’s chocolate
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/8 cup non dairy milk (I use hemp milk. If you want a thinner mousse, add a little more.)
Spoon avocado into a food processor and add in vanilla, salt sugar and cocoa powder. Mix until smooth.
In a double boiler melt baking chocolate and add to mixture. When smooth, spoon into serving dishes and chill until time to serve. You can also eat the mousse right away if you don’t mind it a little warm.
Garnish by sprinkling with a little bit of sea salt.
