CHOCOLATE CHIA PROTEIN MOUSSE

Always have that craving for something sweet after meals or fancy some chocolate for breakfast (I'm guilty of this every single day dw)?
Then try whizzing up my protein mousse, which is not only incredibly nourishing due to all it's healthy fats but also tastes delicious and will keep you full and satisfied for hours.

The secret ingredient in this dish is avocado, which gives an amazingly light and creamy texture. As if avocado alone wasn't good enough, making it into a thick, velvety chocolate mousse transforms it into the best craving killer!


Topped with blueberries, edible pansies and a dusting of coconut sugar

INGREDIENTS:
(serves 1 hungry guy or gal or 2 people with a normal appetite..)

  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder (I use Vivo Life raw cacao PERFORM)
  • 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • Pinch of pink himalayan salt
  • 1 frozen ripe banana (optional but if you like things quite sweet I'd recommend it)
  • 2 tbsp Wyldsson healthy nutella (this is a spread made from cashews, hazelnuts, cocoa and dates but if you don't have it you can sub for 2 dates and 2tbsp nut butter of choice. I can't promise the sub will be as good but I guess it's better than nothing. I tried almond butter before and it just tasted burnt so I wouldn't recommend that! Cashew butter is probably your best bet)


Topped with cacao nibs and almond butter 

METHOD:
Blend in a food processor such as a Nutribullet until smooth and creamy.
You may have to stop a few times and scrape down the sides as well as add a bit more liquid if you're struggling to get it going.

Transfer to a bowl (if you can manage not to eat it straight out the blender) and then add your favourite toppings!

As always, if you try it then do let me know - tag me on Instagram @jesssriv as I'd love to see how you get on!
