Chocolate Mousse

(Dairy Free, Grain Free, Paleo and GAPS Friendly)

This Mousse is a great addition to the family menu as it has a mostly veggie (pumpkin) and fruit (avocado) based which gives you another place to bring in more vitamins and minerals along with a healthy dose of good fats or oils from the avocado which makes you feel more satiated or fuller longer.

For the picker eaters in your household you may want to increase the honey or other sweetener until the palate has adjusted.

  2. For piping you need to slightly chill the mix so it holds shape
  3. Chill in the fridge for 30-60 minutes before serving.

In the picture below I piped the left over mix onto a baking paper lined tray and then froze then as little freezer treats. It could be used as an icing or spread or even as a centre for homemade chocolates.The below image is a frozen thawed sample (L) and a frozen sample (R)
