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!
