Mousse for everyone!

photo-34Yes, this mousse may work for every palate at your table – vegan, gluten- free, nut-free and most importantly delicious!  Oh and it only takes about 10 minutes to fix! You will need ~

2-4 ripe avocados

Any good cocoa powder (unsweetened works best so you can add your own sweetener);  Ghiradelli makes a really good 100% cocoa for the price

Sweetener of choice – the syrups may alter the consistency of the mousse a little ..so play with it.  I used a couple of tablespoons of fine maple sugar.  The powder sugars must be finely ground to avoid a gritty mouth-feel.

Vanilla extract and a pinch of salt to taste; a spritz of lemon juice

Cut and slice the avocados into a large bowl.  Add all the other ingredients to taste.  I used a hand blender to gently mix everything to the desired consistency.

Some flavor choices? Orange zest and a dash of orange liqueur…or chopped crystallized ginger with a dash of dark rum?

A very festive holiday from my table to yours!
