Notes

Use this recipe as ganache for the brownie as an alternative to the peanut caramel sauce. This mousse also works great as a dipping sauce for fresh strawberries.

 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup vanilla almond milk or coconut water
  • 1/2 Cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 Cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 avocados
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Teaspoon sea salt
  • Fresh raspberries (optional garnish)
  • Coconut shavings (optional garnish)

Directions

Place the mousse ingredients in the order as they appear, beginning with liquids, in a Vitamix® or another high-power blender and blend until smooth.



If the consistency is too thick, add more almond milk or coconut water. Accessorize with raspberries and coconut shavings.
