Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Actually, I’m not a massive fan of Valentine’s Day. I spent the best part of my twenties cursing all the couples as I drifted in and out of unsuitable ‘relationships’ but mainly remained single (TMI?!) So I don’t really see the point of an over-commercialised ‘holiday’ designed to make single people feel inadequate and couples feel as though they have to gaze into each other’s eyes in a check-tableclothed Italian restaurant being overcharged for a plate of spaghetti carbonara.
Having said that, I still expect a card from the other half 😉
So my lovely husband and I tend to just make each other dinner at home and tonight it’s my turn for pudding. I have just whipped up these little chocolate mousses with a surprise healthy ingredient. They tasted pretty good when I licked the spoon so here’s hoping the afternoon in the fridge will make them super-yummy.
Simply whizz up 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil (or melted coconut oil if you have it) with one teaspoon of water and the flesh of a whole, ripe avocado (the ‘surprise ingredient!) until very smooth. Then add 2 tbsp of cocoa powder (or raw cacao powder for an uber-healthy version) and 2 tbsp of honey and whizz again. Transfer to two bowls or ramekins and leave in the fridge for a couple of hours. Serve with fresh berries.
Have a lovely day!
