Avocado Protein Chocolate Mousse +Recipe

Avocado Protein Powder Chocolate Mousse

My new obsession —> avocado chocolate protein mousse. I have eaten this for breakfast, a post workout meal, and as a dessert. It is creamy, smooth, packed with nutrients and protein, and tastes like dessert.

Avocados are considered the number 1 super food by many health professionals. There are so many benefits to eating avocados, but if you are like me, and don't really love the taste of them on their own, then this recipe is a perfect way to incorporate them into your diet.

Just to name a few of their health benefits; these fruits reduce inflammation, which causes chronic diseases like asthma, allergies, heart disease, etc., improve digestion and nutrient absorption. They are great for our eyes, skin and hair.

Avocados contain antioxidants, heart-heathy monounsaturated fats and fiber to help keep you satiated. After I eat this recipe I am always satisfied.

Avocado Mousse Recipe:

Ingredients (1 serving):

Mousse:

  • 1 avocado
  • 1-1.5 scoops of protein powder (I use Orgain Chocolate Fudge)
  • 1/2-2/3 cup coconut milk or almond milk
  • 3/4 frozen banana
  • 1/8 tsp salt (or less)
  • 1/4 tsp of cinnamon
  • *optional 1/2 tsp maple syrup if your protein powder isn't very sweet

Toppings:

  • 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries *optional

Instructions:

  1. Add coconut milk, frozen banana, salt, cinnamon, avocado, and protein powder into blender, in that order.
  2. Blend until it is a smooth, light, and creamy consistency.
  3. Remove mousse from blender into bowl, then mix in blueberries or other desired toppings.
  4. Enjoy!

I have a large appetite, so I can easily eat this whole recipe on my own. But this could also be made for 2 or 3 servings if you wanted to serve it as a snack or dessert.

Nutrition facts 1 serving (whole recipe):

 

 

  •  calories: 470
  • 20 grams protein
  • 28 grams fat
  • 47 grams carbs

 

  • 19 grams fiber
  • 14 grams sugar (almost entirely from the banana and blueberries)

 

 

 

I have also made this recipe with other brands/ flavors of protein powder. When I made it with vanilla protein powder, I added more cinnamon to the recipe. You can also add a bit of maple syrup if you want to make it sweeter. I have also found that coconut milk makes the mousse slightly thicker than almond milk. When I use coconut milk I add closer to 2/3 of a cup, compared to almond milk when I stick closer to using 1/2 cup.
