- 2 ripe avocados
- 1/4 cup chopped ceremonial cacao
- 1/4 cup maple syrup or sweetener of choice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Pinch of sea salt
- Optional toppings: fresh berries, grated ceremonial cacao, or edible flower petals, granola.
Step 1: Melt the Ceremonial Cacao.
In a small heatproof bowl, place the Ceremonia-Grade Cacao, then add 2-3 tablespoons of hot water to the bowl and stir gently until the cacao melts into a smooth liquid. Set the bowl aside to cool slightly.
Step 2: Prepare the Avocados.
Start by halving the ripe avocados and removing the pits. Scoop out the avocado flesh and place it in a blender or food processor.
Step 3: Blend the Ingredients.
Add the melted ceremonial cacao, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and a pinch of sea salt to the blender or food processor with the avocados. Blend until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy. Take a moment to scrape down the sides to ensure all the ingredients are well incorporated.
Step 4: Adjust the Sweetness.
Give the mousse a taste and adjust the sweetness to your liking. If desired, add more maple syrup or your preferred sweetener and blend again until well combined. You can also add more cacao at this step if you want it richer.
Step 5: Chill and Serve.
Transfer the mousse to individual serving dishes or a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow it to set and chill. This step enhances the texture and allows the flavours to meld together.
Step 6: Garnish and Enjoy.
Once chilled, remove the mousse from the refrigerator. Serve it as is or get creative with your favourite toppings. Consider adding fresh berries, a sprinkle of grated ceremonial cacao for an extra chocolatey touch, or even edible flower petals for an appealing presentation. Indulge in each spoonful of this luscious cacao-infused creation.
