Luscious Lime Mousse

lime mousse pot

If you’re not a huge fan of avocados I hope this delicious recipe will instil a new found love for this superfood! Avocados are one of the few ingredients which contain pretty much every single nutrient we need for survival. They’re absolutely brilliant for your skin, hair and nails and they’re crammed full of healthy fats and energy.

If you’re not a fan of adding avocado to your blended green drinks and don’t enjoy the taste of guacamole I would love you to try this recipe and tell me what you think. The addition of lemon and lime and added sweetness of maple syrup completely disguises their taste! Please give it a try and post in the comments below. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

INGREDIENTS

For the Mousse

1 avocado

Juice and zest of half a lemon

Juice and zest of half a lime

2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil

1 to 2 tablespoons of maple syrup or honey

For the Base

2 tablespoons of chopped dried dates

2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil

2 tablespoons of chopped mixed nuts or trail mix

Flat teaspoon of cacao powder

Plus

Raspberries / passion fruit / trail mix – to decorate

HERE’S HOW

Blitz the avocado, lemon juice, lime juice, zest and coconut oil together. Add a tablespoon of maple syrup and blend again. Check to see if your mousse is sweet enough. You may need to add more depending on the size of avocado

Whizz the base mixture ingredients together. I like mine chunky so I tend to pulse the mixture for a minute only

Layer the base mixture into a glass.

Spoon on the lime mousse

I added raspberries, passionfruit and trail mix to decorate.

I absolutely love this lime mousse pot. Super healthy and super delicious!
