You know how sometimes when you give foods a second chance you end up liking them? I tried that yesterday with celery and PB. A stringy stalk of celery at that (remember now, I have a weird aversion to strings on food).
Nope. Still gross. I actually had to throw the last piece away because I could not handle the taste and texture. That’s not the first time I’ve given foods a second chance though. Actually, I recently had a really good experience with a second chance recipe.
So the other day there was this half an avocado and a really old banana chilling in my kitchen.
That sounds like the start of a bad joke, huh?
Whatever. So there was half an avocado and a really old banana chilling in my kitchen, and since brown bananas are not my thing and avos don’t last long, I had to do something about it.
Enter semisweet avocado mouse. Now, I know that this has been done before, but I really wanted to give it a go. I made this once before and it was nast. I’m so glad I gave this another chance because it turned out really well. I promise this one is a keeper!
You only need a few ingredients, too, which you probably already have around the house.
Semisweet Chocolate Avocado Mousse
- 1/2 ripe avocado
- 1 banana (on the verge of death)
- 2 Tbsp + 1 tsp cocoa powder
- 2 tsp honey
- 1/2 packet stevia (optional, but necessary for me)
- Blend avo, banana and cocoa powder in food processor.
- Scrape down the sides with a spatula.
- Add in honey and stevia packet (I did use the stevia).
- Continue to blend until completely smooth!
