I first made this plant-based recipe over 5 years ago. I recently rediscovered it whilst in search of making myself new snacks and desserts that fit my dietary restrictions (many food allergies, vegan, eczema and health/fitness things I live by) and also wanting to save more money to reach certain goals.
It’s challenging sometimes to find food that fits all of my dietary criteria, that actually tastes good, is plant-based and doesn’t cost me a gazillion dollars. Do you ever have this problem?
I’m very happy to share this recipe with you and I’m pretty sure you will love it for a multitude of reasons (it’s healthy, delicious, easy to make, vegan, simple ingredients, plant-based and affordable). Unless you don’t like avocado…..in which case we can’t be friends (relax, I’m joking!).
Now without further ado, let’s dive into the recipe! 🍓🥑🍒
-1 cup frozen mixed berries
-1 Tbsp agave nectar
-1 tsp vanilla extract (optional, but never hurts)
In a blender (I used a Vitamix blender) add your 1 cup of frozen mixed berries.
Then making sure that your avocado has been washed, cut it in half, remove the seed and use a spoon to scoop out the insides.
Now, add the avocado into the blender with the frozen berries. Next, add your 1 tbsp of agave nectar into the blender.
Add the vanilla extract if you wish (I have made this recipe both ways and I like it either way).
Put the lid on your blender and blend well until it’s smooth and well mixed together. Due to the thick nature of the mousse, you may have to stop a few times to scrape down the sides of the blender and/or use a spoon to stir it up to move the mixture back closer to the blade.
Once the mixture is a rich, smooth texture it’s all done and ready to eat!
Serve and enjoy right away! 👍🏽 😄
Makes 1 to 2 servings
(You can eat the whole thing on your own, or share it with another person in a separate dish)
Avocados: This is a source of healthy fat. They contain vitamins C, E and K, potassium, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin B-6 to name a few.
Berries: These beauties are full of antioxidants, vitamins C & K, fiber and phytonutrients, plus other nutrients.
-If you have any dietary restrictions (such as food allergies, a fitness diet regimen, etc) no problem! You can easily replace the agave nectar with Stevia (zero calorie sweetener derived from a plant).
-If after you have mixed all the ingredients together, you still find you want it to be a tad sweeter, simply add a bit more of your desired sweetener to get it to your liking (…but don’t go nuts here guys n gals, lol!).
-You are free to experiment with other flavors instead of mixed berries. If you have another idea, go for it and let me know how it turned out! With a bit of creativity you can really make some plant-based masterpieces!
