this is what i had for lunch today. the hard life of a food blogger eh ?
it’s my 3 ingredient chococolate mousse – one of the simplest desserts of all time. or in this case, lunch.
gluten-free, nut-free, oil-free and of course vegan and super healthy !
don’t like bananas ? switch it up with avocados or silken tofu instead. i’ve never tried it with fresh dates, but should work too – just skip the soaking part.
i always like serving chocolate with something fresh, like berries, fruits, herbs. today we had the mousse with tons of frozen berries, pear slices, and basil. a bit of cinnamon, chilli or sea salt in the mix won’t hurt non either !
3 ingredient chocolate mousse
3 large, or 4 small, bananas
1 cup of dried pitted dates ( about 10-15 depending on which kind of dates )
about 4 tbsp cacao
– soak the dates in cold water for about 1 hour, to make it easier on the blender. if your dates are quite soft, you can skip this part.
– mix bananas, dates and cacao in a blender or food processor until completely smooth. give it a taste and add more of anything if needed.
– pour into glasses or serving bowls. i like placing the glasses in the freezer for a bit to chill and let set a little. completely optional, it’ll be totally yummy straight out of the blender too.
serving suggestion :
frozen berries. fruits, like pears or apples, or shredded orange peal. fresh strawberries. herbs like mint or basil. spice it up with cinnamon, a dash of chilli, or a sprinkle of sea salt !
ok that’s it kiddos – now go into that kitchen and make your own !
you can thank me later.
