Rich Chocolate, Orange & Ginger Mousse

Valentine's recipe for Burlanes from Ceri's Natural Kitchen Adventures


2 ripe large avocado
2 medium banana
6 Tbs melted coconut oil
Zest and juice of 1 orange
Ginger juice (from 1 Tbs fresh grated ginger)
1 tsp orange extract
½ cup raw cacao powder (or unsweetened cocoa)
½ tsp ground cardamom
Pinch salt
[Optional 2 Tbs maple syrup, or more to taste]

Place the avocado & banana flesh, coconut oil, orange juice (reserve zest till later) and ginger juice in a high-speed blender, and blend until a smooth mousse-like texture forms, and all the green of the avocado is dispersed. You may need to scrape down the sides with a spatula.
Add in the cacao, cardamom and salt and blend again until fully incorporated. Add maple syrup to taste and transfer to individual serving glasses.
Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes until the coconut oil firms up the mousse. The texture should be like a decadent French pot au chocolat.
Decorate with the orange zest and serve.

This delicious mousse is absent of refined sugar and suitable for vegans, dairy-dodgers, and men too!
