KEY LIME AVOCADO MOUSSE
Mousse is the best! Creamy and sweet, it really is the perfect dessert. But with heavy cream and eggs, it's not the most sustainable or healthy treat. Enter: avocados! They're lighter on the planet and our waistlines, providing a creamy texture and healthy fat. Combined with maple syrup and tart key limes, you can't taste the avocado in the final product, and you can rest easy knowing you're doing something good for yourself and the planet. Yum!
Prep Time: 15 minutes, plus time to chill
4 small key limes
2 large, ripe avocado
½ C maple syrup
2 tsp chia seeds
Flaked coconut, to garnish
Fresh raspberries, to garnish
2 lime wedges, to garnish
Juice and zest the limes, placing both the juice and zest into a food processor or blender.
Scoop the avocado flesh into the processor. Add the maple syrup and chia seeds. Blend on high until smooth and creamy, about 1 – 2 minutes.
Transfer the mousse into two serving containers (I use glass tumblers) and let sit in the fridge 1 – 2 hours.
Once ready, top with some flaked coconut and fresh raspberries, and garnish each glass with a wedge of lime.
