Avocado Mousse

Avocado mousse is a new way to eat avocado for dessert. This is super easy to whip up and full of good-for-you fats from the avocados.

While this recipe is much easier in a blender or food processor, you can mash the avocado first with a fork if you don’t have either tool. I roughly chopped my avocado and then threw it into a Magic Bullet and blended it until smooth. It made a nice and creamy whipped consistency.

If you’re looking for a way to include more decadence into this dessert, you can add some dark cocoa powder. This dish does not traditionally include chocolate, but you can add some dark cocoa powder if you feel so inclined! The chocolate powder will mix well with the fat from the avocado and will give you a creamy smooth dessert.

The avocado mousse is best served cold, so chill it in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.

Where to Find Rosewater

Rosewater is a specialty ingredient that can be difficult to find. It took me about a week to find it the first time I needed to use it in a macaroon recipe.

If you have a couple days to spare, you can order it on Amazon. In a specialty grocery store, it will be located in the international food isle. Don’t be shy about asking someone who works there for some direction about where to find it if you’re unsure.

If you can’t find rosewater or don’t want to wait for Amazon to deliver it, you can always make your own or use a replacement. Rosewater is just want it sounds like- steamed roses. If you have access to fresh roses (I know they sell those at the grocery store!) steam the rose petals. A steamer will be the perfect tool for making your own rosewater at home. If you don’t have a steamer, put the rose petals in a saucepan covered with water with an empty smaller bowl in the middle. Cover and let simmer for about 30 minutes. Let simmer for about 30 minutes; the rosewater will collect in the in the empty bowl.

Rosewater adds a great flavor to this avocado mousse.

Best Honey to Use

Using locally sourced honey is always best, and there’s many reasons to use local, raw honey. Local bees will make honey using the local flowers. Many of us that suffer from hay fever are allergic these same plants that these bees visit, so some of these pollens are also in the honey that they create. This means that when we eat local honey, it can possibly combat some of these allergies.

It’s always best if you can get your hands on an unprocessed and unfiltered honey. The kind that you find in the grocery store may look appealing, but that is because it’s incredibly processed and all the benefits (such as the pollen) have been filtered out of it.

Spend some time on Google researching local beekeepers and be sure to ask if they have honey for purchase.

Making the Avocado Mousse

Basically, you’re adding the ingredients together and blending. This is a super easy and straightforward recipe to follow.

It’s best to blend the avocado first with the milk before adding in the other ingredients since the avocado is what will take the most time to blend. After it is blended, add in your other ingredients and continue to blend. Taste and add in more salt or honey if you so choose.

The avocado mousse is best served cold, so chill it in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.
