Keyword: matcha mousse, vegan dessert
Servings: 2

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe Fresh California Avocados seeded and peeled
  • 70 grams Vegan White Chocolate
  • 2-4 tsp Ceremonial Grade Matcha Powder to taste
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Bean Paste
  • Maple Syrup sweeten as needed (optional)
  • Fresh Mint to garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • Remove the seed and carefully peel the avocado skin away. Add halved avocados to the food processor.
  • Melt the white chocolate in the microwave in 15 second intervals, stirring in between. Add to the food processor along with avocados and matcha powder.
  • Blend until completely smooth. Taste, and adjust by adding more matcha or maple syrup if desired. If using vanilla bean paste, add it to the blender at this stage as well.
  • Once completely smooth, transfer to small glass cups to serve. Dust with a thin layer of matcha powder on top and fresh mint to garnish, if desired.

Notes

Secrets to Success

  • I recommend using avocados that are ripe to the touch. They should be soft enough to be blended smoothly and will also yield the creamiest results for this dish!
  • If you prefer dark chocolate or milk chocolate to white chocolate, you can absolutely substitute. Just be aware that the green colour will likely not shine through. You may also need to adjust for sweetness, as white chocolate tends to be much sweeter than dark or milk chocolate. 
  • If you don’t have a food processor, you can also use a blender, hand mixer, or stand mixer with a whisk attachment to blend all of your ingredients. Keep in mind that you want this matcha mousse to be very smooth. 

Serving Tips

  • This dessert is best enjoyed immediately, so I recommend prepping just before serving. If desired, you can chill the mousse for about 30 minutes or so. The matcha powder will help to preserve the beautiful green avocado colour. 
  • If preparing in advance or chilling, dust with the matcha powder just before serving for the best presentation.

Storage Tips

  • I don’t recommend making this in much advance of eating it, as avocados are known to brown quite quickly. You can make it in advance for up to 30 minutes before, but not much longer than that.
