Spicy chocolate mousse recipeFitness and nutrition · Feb 20, 2021
Prep time: 25 minutes | Makes 4 servings
Rich in plant-based omega-3 fats and antioxidants, this nutrient-dense dessert is inspired by "xocoatl", a decadent ancient Aztec drink brimming with chocolate and spices.
2 ripe avocados
4 ½ tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
4 tbsp honey or maple syrup
2 pinches chili powder
⅛ tsp ground cardamom
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
1-3 tbsp milk or milk substitute
Raspberries or strawberries for garnish
In a blender, combine the avocado flesh, cocoa powder, honey/maple syrup and spices until well blended (about one minute).
Add milk if necessary, one tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
Taste and add a touch more honey or spice, if desired (at this point, you will still taste the avocado, but it will disappear once chilled).
Chill for 15 minutes in the freezer.
Garnish with berries before serving.
