801010 Chocolate Mousse

| Breakfast

IMG_9068smallThis is another gem I have discovered over the past few weeks – how to make chocolate mousse using the same ingredients that I use for my chocolate banana ice cream!  It is so easy, tastes incredible and makes for a very filling yet SUPER healthy breakfast:)

IMG_9072smallDo understand, this is not intended to be a mousse that you serve to guests for dessert!  As lovely as it is, it is not the light fluffy or dense, rich and creamy chocolate mousse that I deem “guest-worthy”.  For a dessert chocolate mousse for guests, make this recipe of mine – it will knock their socks off – guaranteed!  This does, however, make for a perfect breakfast or lunch.  As I was eating this, I kept telling my husband how I can’t believe this is actually good for me!  He agreed:)

Ingredients

  • 130g pitted dates soaked in 3/4 cup water overnight (medjool or brick dates – any will do)
  • 420g chopped up frozen bananas
  • about 5 tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon maca powder (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla powder or extract
  • additional stevia if needed
  • water as needed

Instructions

Add dates along with their soaking water to your food processor and process until the dates are all broken up and the liquid is nice and frothy.  Now add the cacao and process until well-combined.  Now add the frozen banana pieces along with cinnamon, maca and vanilla and process until a light and fluffy mousse forms.  You will need to add water as you process it – just add a 1/4 cup water at a time so that you do not use any more than is necessary.  Taste:)  These ratios of ingredients above are just guidelines.  Play around with the ratios to suit your taste – perhaps you like less cacao or more vanilla or no maca or no cinnamon or perhaps you want to add chilli!  Use this as a template to create a dream breakfast for YOUR taste buds:)

Enjoy it!
