Chocolate strawberry mousse pots

Chocolate strawberry mousse pots

Having a “family dinner” one  night over Easter for ten people, I decided to make something interesting up for dessert. This is what I came up with! Little layered chocolate and strawberry mousse pots. The trick is not to tell anyone that their mousse is made out of tofu and avocado! And let them enjoy it before you confess 🙂

*NB. I made double this amount for 10 dessert bowls. For a ‘normal’ size family just make the recipe below. (And yes, there are only 8 in the picture! The kids already ate theirs :))

Chocolate mousse:

1 ripe avocado

1 tin coconut cream (just the creamy top)

2 T cacao

2 T rice syrup/agave

1 ripe banana (optional if extra sweetness required)

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

sprinkle of salt

Mash, stir, blend and refrigerate 🙂 (Like a lot of my recipes!)

Strawberry mousse:

1 pkt silken tofu

2 punnets of strawberries, hulled

2 T agave/rice syrup (if required)

1 T balsamic vinegar

Blend the tofu in a blender until creamy. Add remaining ingredients and blend.

The chocolate mousse will be thicker than the strawberry so put the chocolate mix on the bottom as per below.

You don’t need to wait for the chocolate mousse to set, it will already hold it’s own. So spoon the chocolate avocado mix in and then pour the strawberry mix on top.

I then topped them with a few blueberries but if you had dark chocolate to shave over them I think it would be perfect 😉

I also think these strawberry ones would be brilliant at a little girl’s kids party. You could do little mousse pots in plastic shot glasses. Gorgeous and pink! (Or of course, if you have a son that’s into pink!)

Make sure you allow a couple of hours for them to set well in the fridge before eating. Enjoy!
