Luscious Lime Mousse
If I hadn't given up chocolate recently, you'd most certainly see a Dark Chocolatey Mousse in that Lime Mousse's place. This Lime Mousse recipe has an avocado base along with frozen bananas and of course, fresh lime juice. But I do love the flavor of lime and this creamy treat tastes even better than it looks, and it's no doubt a healthy dessert for your family and mine.
I've given up most dairy for health reasons and I'm working toward eating a diet of 50% raw foods so this is a perfect treat for me. If you like gluten-free and vegan recipes, this may be perfect for you too.
The health benefits of the avocado (including it's good fat nature) are reasons why I want to eat them as part of my anti-inflammatory diet that meets my personal health criteria. You can find avocado nutrition information listed at Avocado Nutrients. Want some "R-rated" history of the avocado? You'll find more than you want to know here.
FYI: The portion of the avocado closest to the skin is the most dense in nutrients, so be sure to scrape the skin clean before tossing.
It's thick and creamy.
Luscious Lime Mousse(Raw, Non-Dairy)
Ingredients:1/3 cup almond milk4 Medjool dates (pitted and cut)2 medium avocados (chunked)1 tsp vanilla extract1/2 cup fresh lime juice1 Tbsp coconut butter2 frozen bananas sliced
Add the first six ingredients to a high-powered blender (like a Vita-Mix) and blend. Then add frozen bananas last and blend well. Eat right away or refrigerate 'til later. You could probably freeze this in Popsicle molds and eat it like a frozen dessert, but I have not tried that yet.
Top it off with some frozen berries and treat yourself right!
