RECIPE: Best Chocolate Mousse (Vegan, Keto, Paleo)

Do you love chocolate mousse? Who does hey . . . I do – like I really love it! Over the years I have found it hard to find or make the perfect chocolate mousse that was not full of too much sugar or didn’t taste yummy enough!

Finally, after many different tries, I have found the perfect recipe for my favourite BEST vegan chocolate mousse!

The chia seeds in this mousse make it nice and thick and gives it a nice texture like choc chips.

The avocado and the coconut cream add in some healthy fats – bonus!

I do of course advise eating sweet foods like this, as occasional treats only. Also, I encourage you to cut the sweetener down even more if you can. Less sweet is best and a healthier option but gosh they are good when you do reward yourself :)

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe avocados
  • 400ml can coconut cream, chilled so that it’s firm
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup honey/maple syrup/agave/sweetner (or less) (remove for Keto or change to 1/2 tsp of stevia)
  • 3-4 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1-2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • cacao nibs, optional.

Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and whisk or in a blender/thermomix until all ingredients are well combined and smooth.

Pour into 4-6 serving glasses or cups. Sprinkle with cacao nibs and/or strawberries if you like.

Chill in the fridge for at least 3 hours, or until firm. Then eat and enjoy with a large smile!

Recipe: Spelt Pancakes (Dairy Free, Gluten Free)

Oh Pancakes! How much I love you – do you love pancakes?

One of my favourite parts of the weekend, is having yummy, healthy Spelt Pancakes with a cup of tea.

We often think of pancakes with a breaky treat but you can enjoy eery bite with a healthy option.

This recipe is a light, fluffy and totally comfort by having a natural choice for breakfast. While pancakes font have a reputation as a healthy option, this recipe still gives you nutrients that can benehfit your health.

Spelt flour is a great option to substitute for other flours such as whole wheat flours. Spelt flour is much more densely packed with nutrients than the regular wheat flour and gives you a super charges breafst otion to start your day. An extra bonus is that spelt is sweeter than regular wheat flour and has a mild, butty flavour too. Its a lighter grain which helps to have fluffier, lighter pancakes.

A tip is to be aware of how much sugar, processed or natural, are topped on top :)
