Raw chocolate mousse

Serves 2


1 tbsp coconut oil
1 avocado
1 tsp water
2 heaped tbsp raw cacao powder
2 tbsp agave syrup (or more, to taste)
Raspberries or blackberries, to serve


Try this fun party game – ask your guests what unexpected green ingredient they think is in this velvety mousse. They will never guess!

Melt the coconut oil in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of hot water, then transfer to a blender with the avocado flesh and water and whizz until very smooth. Add the cacao powder and agave syrup or honey and whizz again until completely smooth. Taste and add a little more agave syrup, if required.

Put the mousse in a dish for two or, if you prefer, divide the mixture between 2 ramekins. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Serve with raspberries or blackberries… delish!
