Ingredients – Turnip, butternut squash, chickpeas, raw cacao powder, maple syrup & vanilla essence
I hope you all had a good Easter break and ate a lot of chocolate!! If you want to carry on eating chocolate while being good to yourself, try this mousse I made last night. It is not only really creamy and chocolaty….it is also healthy. I made it using some veggie I had in my fridge. I used turnip and butternut squash. Added some chickpeas for the texture and obviously cacao powder and maple syrup to add some sweetness. With a touch of vanilla essence, this mousse is the real deal!
Here is how to make this veggie chocolate mousse (using a standard coffee mug):
Makes 2 servings
1 cup of turnip
3/4 cup of butternut squash
1/2 cup of chickpeas
4tbsp of maple syrup (or more if you want to add more sweetness)
2 to 3 tbsp of raw cacao powder
1tsp of vanilla essence
– Boil the turnip and butternut squash until tender. Drain and put in blender with chickpeas (from tin).
– Once well mixed, add the cacao powder, maple syrup and vanilla.
– Mix well and taste. Add maple syrup and/or cacao powder if needed.
– Put mixture in fridge for at least one hour or preferably overnight.
– Et voilà!
