Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients

  • 1 large ripe avocado de-stoned, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder or vegan approved cocoa powder
  • 150 grams silken tofu
  • 100 ml soya milk (or unsweetened almond or coconut milk)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp sugar free syrup optional to taste
  • 1 square dark chocolate optional curled/grated for garnish

Instructions

  • Dice then mash the avocado with a fork so that it blends more easily (I find this stops my blender from becoming clogged and mixes a smoother mousse much better)
  • Add all ingredients to a blender and blitz until smooth and velvety, adding the milk a drop at a time until you reach the desired consistency
  • Add sugar free syrup or sweetener to taste. The chocolate velvet can be served immediately or chilled to set more firm and be served later
  • Grate or curl some vegan approved dark chocolate over the top to garnish when serving

Notes

Add dairy free or vegan approved dark chocolate shavings on top, or crushed nuts
