You will need to blend the following
- two bananas;
- one avocado;
- two big spoons of cacao or carob if you don’t like to use any stimulants;
- if you like: one spoon of sweetner such as Stevia, lucuma or (for non-vegans) raw honey;
- tiny bit of (coconut) water if you like it a bit more smooth.
After blending you should keep the mousse in the fridge for at least one hour before you indulge. For the picture I added some pieces of raw dark chocolate. You can add more as a topping or blend them as well if you like.
