Here is a recipe for another spring time inspired dessert that can be made in minutes with avocados and a few of your everyday ingredients from your pantry.
Step #1 ~ Gather and Measure all Ingredients
Start with 1/4 avocado, 1 tbsp carob powder, 1 tsp raw organic honey* and1 tbsp coconut oil.
* For health and environmental reasons, it is very important that if you use honey, it is raw, organic and local. If you do not eat honey you can replace it with a dark maple syrup.
Step #2 ~ Mix all ingredients together with a spoon. Do a taste test, and adjust flavours as needed. You may be inspired to add some vanilla extract or cinnamon and experience how that tastes. Notice your personal preference.
This is an everyday dessert that’s so yummy; it can stand on its own. You are welcome to add a few more everyday delicious toppings to your preference. I promise, it is very easy :-)
Your Everyday Cuisine LOVES...Affordable Shredded Coconut
For example, you can use one of my affordable favourites: organic shredded coconut.
Step #3 ~ Scoop your chocolaty mousse into a wine glass and top with shredded coconut.
Step #4 ~ I had some dehydrated sprouted "buckwheaties" that I had on hand. So I added it to my "crunchy mix" along with the shredded coconut.
Like dehydrated sprouted sunflower seeds, dehydrated sprouted buckwheat are one of those things that are worth it to make ahead of time. Prepared in big batches, it easily stores well in the fridge in a glass container. Buckweaties are worth it is because they are so versatile and affordable. I was originally inspired to make these after reading Ani Phyo's Raw Food Kitchen. She uses buckwheaties as a base for many of her sweet and savory recipes like cereal, salads and more!
Delicious LOVES...Parfait Layers
It's always nice to split your mousse in two so you can layer your dessert.
Step #5 ~ I quickly steamed some raspberries to make a warm berry coulis.
I always have some frozen berries on hand in my freezer. It is best to pick fresh berries in the summer and store in your freezer for affordable healthy deliciousness all year long :-)
Step #6 ~ Top with fresh mint
One of the flavours I have chosen to focus on in my spring cuisine is fresh mint. Why? This refreshing herb pairs well with spring flavours like asparagus, peas, Swiss chard, dandelion leaves and everyday affordable veggies like beets and carrots.
