Ingredients

For the Mousse:

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1 avocado/small avocado
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Juice and zest of 4 limes (see notes)

For the Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup cashews (soak for 12-24 hours) (see notes)
  • 4 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (see notes)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A hint of sea salt

Preparation

  1. In a jar, mix the almond milk with the chia seeds and let stand in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. The seeds will form a gel texture.

  3. Place in glasses or jars in portions and store in refrigerator while preparing the frosting.
  4. Discard water from cashews and rinse thoroughly. Place all the ingredients for the frosting in a processor or blender and process until obtaining a homogeneous consistency (2-3 minutes).
  5. You can spread the frosting over the mousse with the help of a spoon or pass the frosting through a sleeve with peak decorator to spread the frosting with your favorite design.
  6. Serve or store in refrigerator for up to two days.
