« on: June 16, 2013, 09:01:30 AM »

Who knew?
This is incredibly rich.  Gotta find a way to lighten it up.  Next time, I'm leaving out the chips.


Ingredients

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips, such as Ghirardelli
4 very ripe (8 ounce) avocados, peeled and pitted
1/2 cup agave
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon fine salt
Fresh raspberries, for garnish

Directions

Place the chocolate chips in a small bowl. Place over a small saucepan of barely simmering water. Stir until the chocolate is melted and smooth, about 3 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.

Place the melted chocolate, avocados, agave, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt in a food processor. Blend until smooth and creamy, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed. Spoon into glasses and refrigerate for at least 3 hours (can be prepared 1 day in advance).

It depends on what the meaning of "is" is.

My wife made this.  Looks like mousse, but tastes really off.  Inedible, really.

BTW, fuck this fake food that's better for you shit.

Eat a real burger if you want one - not a chicken burger.  Have a real hot dog, not a "veggie" dog.  And if you want mousse, get the real thing.   

A little of what you like can't hurt you.

It's far from fake.  The avocado replaces heavy cream and raw egg whites, which some people have problems with.  It's also an alternative to using up ripe avocados instead of the same 'ol guac.  I've made this several times and people devour it.  Since it's so rich, I found that making it into truffles and dusting with something to keep them less sticky (cocoa powder, crushed nut powder) is the perfect 2-bite chocolate fix after dinner.   The mixture needs to be refrigerated before making the truffles to firm it up and then kept cool otherwise they get to melty soft.

Why Agave Nectar

Isn't it one of the worst sweeteners given that it is so high in fructose ?

Any sweetener could be used.  This recipe just happen to call for Agave.  Honey would also work but depending on the source, it might have too much of a floral taste.  Regular cane sugar would be too course to adequately dissolve, so I'd probably cook it down into a syrup first.

Those truffles look absolutely delicious! I'm afraid I cannot convince my husband to try them if he knew they're made with avocado, though...

If you want to use cane sugar, you could grind it to powder first. My mom used an old electric coffee grinder to make powdered sugar.

I considered that because it works when baking and needing a finer grain for texture purposes, but in this case, since there's no cooking involved, the consistency of the finished product would be off - too dry.  A 1/4 cup of honey or Agave, corn syrup... adds to the "creaminess".   Regular truffles are SIMPLE to make.  They're basically melted chocolate and heavy cream with a few other ingredients.  Calorie wise ~ probably not much difference.

I understand your point.
Maybe it's because we're not used to cook with liquid sweeteners in the NL. Agave syrup is only found in expensive health shops and corn syrup is nearly impossible to come by (found a jar in a arts and crafts shop, though Huh ). The only use we have for syrups is as topping for pancakes, or in tea in case of honey.
Usually, we just use granulated or powdered sugar in those recipes some extra liquid, such as milk, melted butter, water or juice.

Still, it's a perfect recipe for when my lactose-intolerant friend visits. Smiley

Looks pretty good!

I'll replace the agave with some sugar or artificial sweetener. Agave syrup sounds gross tbh..

It's yummy, vegan, and great for your skin.   Tongue

Try this recipe Princess L. It's a little lighter. Less avocado, and no chocolate chips.
Not quite as fudgey, ...more moussey.

Wow....good find Princess. I wouldn't include the chocolate chips myself.

And another good find 24.

I won't use Agave as the sweetener I don't think.

Princess's looks like pudding....24's looks more like a mousse.

But how can anyone go wrong with chocolate anything??? Tongue

Hubby eats yoghurt with cocoa powder and cocoa nibs. That combo is most faul to me.  Lips sealed

But some dark chocolate in a beef stew is very nice...
