Recipe: vegan chocolate mousse/pudding

I don't really post two or more blog posts in a day, but since the last one was just "I'm on Facebook" information, I decided to write another post today, a recipe. Yay! I already posted a picture on Facebook in "Food" album, and I think it's time to share my favorite dessert with you :).

It's super easy to make (5 minutes), it's vegan, a healthy snack, dessert or even breakfast :)

Ingredients (for one person):
- one ripe avocado (use a smaller avocado or just half of bigger one)
- cocoa powder (preferably an organic one, I used regular one)
- agave nectar (or maple syrup)
- (optional) cinnamon

Put peeled and cut avocado into a food processor and mix until smooth consistency.

Add 2-3 spoons of agave nectar and mix. Add 2 spoons of cacao powder and little bit of cinnamon, mix again. Make sure that all ingredients are well combined.
Et voila! Serve and enjoy! :)

I saw this recipe on Cinnamon and Thyme blog, she just added rum and coconut cream on top. Here is a video from The Sweetest Vegan for the same dessert: click.
Here is a video how to peel and cut an avocado: click. Explanation is kinda ridiculous :D

Instead of agave nectar, you can use honey, in that case it would be just vegetarian dessert :) (I'm so into vegetarian/vegan thing right now).
If consistency is too thick, use a little bit of soy or almond milk. Or just regular, if you don't care about the vegan part :).

Avocados are super foods, full of potassium, fiber, Vitamin E, folic acid and healthy fats. I will write another post soon on how to use avocados.

Bon apetit!

  1. Mmmm, hvala za tole! Jaz sem sicer vegetarijanka, ampak me malo hecajo jajca in mleko in se jim izogibam, kolikor se da. Jogurti in pudingi mi pustijo pa rees neprijetne posledice na želodcu, tole bom čim prej sprobala, ker imam drugače rada pudinge. :D Komaj čakam še druge recepte, pri avokadu sem pogosto brez idej. :D

    1. Js ne prebavljam mleka, tudi kakšnega sira ne morem in sem na poti, da postanem vegetarjanka, trenutno jem samo morske sadeže in ribe. Povej kako se ti je zdel tale puding!
      Bom objavila še kakšen recept čim prej :))

    1. Avocados are A-mazing for all kinds of desserts, to add that creamy texture ... I use them in and with everything. I love avocados! :)
