Avocado "Key Lime" Mousse
Don’t miss out on making this avocado "key lime" mousse. It is a winner on every level. This pudding can literally be made in under 5 minutes; chilled and devoured in under half an hour; and requires absolutely no skill whatsoever. Just blend and chow!
1/3 cup coconut nectar, plus more to taste
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
2 ripe avocados, pitted and peeled (no bruising or discoloration)
2 cups chopped bananas (about 2 bananas)
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
Throw all of the ingredients into your blender (I use a Blendtec) and puree on high for 1 to 2 minutes, until well combined. You may need to stop your machine and scrape down the sides of the container to ensure everything is incorporated evenly.
Tweak the sweetener to taste.
Divide the mousse among four serving glasses and chill in the fridge for about 3 hours to thicken. Serve the same day, chilled, to avoid oxidation.
Note: This mousse works best with ripe avocados that don’t have any brown discolorations. Over-ripe or bruised avocados detract from the taste.
To cut down on tartness just add a little more of the sweetener to this recipe.
