Dairy-free chocolate mousse

Dairy free chocolate mousse

Makes 6

  • 150 g dairy-free dark chocolate, plus extra for serving

  • 2 large ripe avocados

  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste

  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup

  • 1 x 160 g tin of coconut cream

Place a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water, making sure the base doesn't touch the water. Break the chocolate into the bowl and allow it to melt, then set aside to cool slightly.



Meanwhile, halve and stone the avocados, then scoop the flesh into a food processor, discarding the skins. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse for a few seconds. Scrape down the sides with a spatula, then pulse again to combine.



Pour in the cooled chocolate, then pulse a final time until creamy and smooth. Divide the mixture between six small bowls, then pop in the fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes. Serve with an extra grating of chocolate and a fresh fruit salad.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere ā€“ only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
