Avocado Lime Mousse

Avocado Lime Mousse

Key Lime Avocado Pudding

Avocado lime mousse is one of my quick and easy recipe that I love to prepare. I had visitors last weekend and they wanted me to fix a dessert that was easy to make because they were about to leave. So I made my carob mousse recipe and place it in a gluten-free vegan pie crust and voila dessert was ready! It was a huge hit and they all couldn’t believe how simple it was to prepare. If you are pressed for time, this Midel crust is also gluten-free vegan

Well I decided to make a avocado lime mousse instead and it was just as delicious. My son Daevyd has been having allergies for the the past 4 days and he hasn’t been able to spend much time outdoors but today he feels way better so we decided to go by the lake on the property and play with his puppy macho. He wanted to eat his avocado lime mousse outdoor. I use this opportunity to teach Deavyd the foods that are toxic for his dog, he kept asking me what else is bad for his puppy.

Take me to the lake(1)

Ingredients:

  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 banana
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 lime zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Carob chips for garnish

Directions:

Cut avocado lengthwise, separate the two halves. Remove the seed and discard, scoop out the flesh with a spoon and transfer to a food processor or a bowl if using an immersion blender. Add coconut cream, maple syrup, banana and process until smooth. Add lime juice, lime zest, vanilla and sea salt and continue to process until fully combined. Transfer mousse to a bowl and refrigerate until chilled then serve.

Macho trying to get at Daevyd’s mousse but we wouldn’t let him have any because avocados are toxic for dogs. Some other foods that are toxic for dogs are bread dough, chocolate, grapes, raisins, macadamia nuts, moldy foods, onions, garlic, milk or other dairy products, candy, gums, persimmons, peach, plums, salt. Dogs are very curious animals so you have to take care that they don’t eat what they aren’t supposed to. Call ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center 888 426-4435 at once if you believe your dog has eaten something toxic.

      Rama, I add lime or lemon juice once I mash it. If I’m keeping for long, I put it in a sealed container and make sure I fill the container with the pureed or mashed avocado to the top. This way there isn’t much air to cause oxidation. When I’m ready to eat, I remove the lid of the container and scoop and discard the top layer. Hope this helps.

    […] Well, now that I have a small human being growing inside of me, I strive to be a little more aware regarding what I eat. So now I kept the monster at bay and I flogged myself some of this yummy Uncooked Avocado Lime Mousse. […]

    Hi Michelle, I stumbled on your twitter link through another vegan blogger and got your blog link through that. I am soooo happy about that since my aim is learning all I can about the VEGAN-plant-based lifestyle. I love your story about your son and his dog. It brings a soulful and caring atmosphere to your blog. What I love about your blog is that it seems that you not only care about nutrition but also about the planet and its animals, therefore I loved to see you also brought in a little information about nutrition for animals – not many people know that – it was very helpful. Thank you for sharing amazing recipe’s and stories about your own life, your experiences and your journey. What a blessing to hear another person that has been healed by God’s gift to nature, PLANTS (Fruit/Veggies/Seeds etc)!!

    Regards from South Africa

    I love Avocado mousse. I had it in an Tex-Mex type of restaurant a few years ago. Ever since then, I have been trying to make it on my own and never succeeded. I see the secret to your recipe is Coconut cream. I was using almond milk.
