Rich and Creamy Avocado Cacao Mousse

Rich and Creamy Avocado Cacao Mousse

(It’s Vegan too!)

This creamy cacao mousse is the perfect way to cap off a meal. We’ve made these so many times for guests and they are always blown away at how rich and creamy these are, despite not having an ounce of dairy in them. Plus, they are really EASY to make – what’s not to love?!

Ingredients

For four servings

130g ripe avocado (either 1 large avo or one and a half little guys)
4Tbsp Cacao Artesanos Cacao Paste
90g whole (unsalted) cashews
140ml oat milk
6 Tbsp maple syrup or agave syrup

Method

Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until silky smooth.
Spoon the mousse into your serving dishes (we suggest individual little dessert pots, if you have them).
Chill for 30 minutes prior to serving in the fridge.

Optional: Feel free to add small cacao paste shavings or crushed nuts to decorate.

Banana & Cacao Smoothie

Banana & Cacao Smoothie

These smoothies are simply bang on – the classic taste of banana & chocolate, but just as Mother Nature intended! This recipe honestly couldn’t be easier – a quick and simple treat when you need a fast pick me up.

Ingredients

1 cup water
1 small banana
2 Tbsp cacao paste

Optional:
1 Tbsp of your favourite natural sweetener – we like to use agave syrup. How much sweetener you add can really depend on how ripe and sweet your banana is.
2 Tbsp almond butter
Dash of cinnamon
1 tsp maca powder – cacao tastes extra delicious when paired with maca powder, a taste sensation and superfood delight!

Method

Add ingredients to a blender and blend – hey presto!

Optional: Make your smoothie a chilled by adding a frozen banana and a handful of ice.
