Healthy Vegan Mousse – 2 Flavours!
Sometimes it happens when we’re sitting on the couch watching a movie. Sometimes after a nice dinner out. No matter where we are, when that sweet tooth hits, sometimes, there’s just no way around it.
It can take over our whole body and mind. All of a sudden we become a Thoroughbred with blinders on determined to get our fix. ‘Don’t do it, stick to your goals!’ That little voice in your head pleads. ‘Shut up! I’ll deal with you later’.
So what do we do when those cravings hit? How do we satisfy it without derailing our progress?
First, you hire me, (shameless plug) your health coach, to rid the evil sugar addiction so it’s not a daily thing. Second, you grab the ingredients for these delicious mousse recipe because every once in awhile, you deserve to kick back and treat-yo-self! And with this healthy, no sugar, no dairy dessert, you can do it guilt free!
My favorite thing about this recipe is the texture. It’ s thick and creamy, almost pudding-like which made it ultra satisfying. Plus the healthy fats in the avocado help stabilize blood sugar which actually helps rid sugar cravings! Double score!
Why I should make this:
-High in antioxidants
-Rich in healthy fats
-High in fibre (supports weight loss)
-Supports skin health & cognitive function
-Satisfies your sweet tooth/chocolate craving while keeping on track with your health goals
This dessert is perfect for sharing with your loved one, a friend, or a large spoon.
