Indulgent Chocolate Banana Mousse


Looking for a delicious dessert that is also (reasonably) healthy, guilt-free and ready in 5 minutes?

Yes… 5 minutes!

Search no more!

Well, if you are not new to my blog, you already know how much I love the combination of chocolate, coconut and bananas. And it fact, who doesn’t? So let me tell you a bit about this purely decadent recipe.

I had some last minute visitors coming for lunch last Saturday and I didn’t know what to do. I wanted to have the time to make a proper dessert. But I didn’t have much on my pantry and not much time available to go shopping for the perfect ingredients or the perfect recipe. So I grabbed whatever I had – bananas, chia, cocoa powder, maple syrup and… not much more to be honest. Mixed it all in the blender and Voila! A perfect and indulgent combination of ingredients in a pudding that was ready in less than 5 minutes (plus refrigerating time, of course). What more to ask?

Desert sorted! Puddings in the fridge.

This desert may also work as a snack (really depends on how badly you are craving for something sweet and smooth).

It is:

  •     Rich
  •     Indulgent
  •     Dark
  •     Sweet
  •     Sugar-free
  •     Diary-free
  •     And super easy to make.

With a smooth, dense texture, delicate sweetness, and a perfectly balanced combination of flavours and long-lasting aftertaste, this is a rich, indulgent treat that you will wish to enjoy all alone, taking your time to truly relish each spoonful.
