Healthy dessert by celebrity nutritionist
"Craving a dessert? Well let me teach you this decadent avocado chocolate mousse," Makhija says in her Reels.
Avocados, as we all know, are loaded with the goodness of potassium and healthy fats that you can have guilt-free. Avocado is a versatile fruit which can be consumed in several ways.
The highlight of this avocado chocolate mousse is that it is sugar-free. Makhija uses honey as a sweetener for this simple yet savoury dish.
To prepare this avocado chocolate mousse, you need 2 avocados, 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tbsp honey, 3 tbsp of melted dark chocolate, a cup of coconut milk, and a pinch of sea salt (optional).
Now, add avocados in the food processor. Add cocoa powder for a nice colour and flavour and not really for the taste of it. Now add the vanilla extract, honey and coconut milk. Coconut milk will provide a creamy texture to the mousse. Now add the melted chocolate and blend all ingredients and voila, your very own healthy avocado chocolate mousse is ready!
And no, we are in no way referring that it is okay to eat the whole dish at once. Practicing portion control is the key to managing weight and avoiding weight gain.
Do try this delicious mousse as it can be prepared in just 15 minutes!
