Chai Chocolate Mousse with Mixed Berries

Chocolate Chai Mousse

How much do you love chocolate? I think it’s easy to say most people LOVE chocolate! And that’s because we have very clever bodies that know that chocolate is full of nutrition. It’s no accident that we crave chocolate at certain times, especially when we are in need of some additional magnesium. And what a lovely way to take a supplement. Cocoa helps prevent cancer, heart disease, & ageing in general. It also helps build strong bones & assists digestion, strengthens the mind and elevates mood with anti-depressant properties. Doesn’t get much better than that!

So how did I make it? Well really, its so simple, you barely need the recipe, but here we go:

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 125 ml coconut cream
  • 1/4 cup cocoa (cacoa)
  • 1 heaped Tbsp chia seeds
  • 4 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom
  • 1 big pinch Celtic sea salt
  • 250 gms mixed frozen berries

Directions:

Put all ingredients except mixed berries in the blender and puree till smooth.

Line glass bowls with the mousse and put mixed berries on top. Chill in fridge for minimum 2 hours before serving.

The avocado, the main ingredient is full of high quality oils, brilliant for your heart. In this recipe, I also have some beautiful chai spices happening. Cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom are all great for your digestion and brain function. We all need all the help we can get in terms of assisting digestion, and in just getting digestion sorted, we in turn help brain function. Healthy gut, clear mind. I can’t stress this one enough!
