  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 5 mins
  • Yields: Serves 5


1 avocado

2 medium bananas

125g/4.5oz almond butter

1 tbsp. cacao

80g/3oz maple syrup

40g/1.5oz pitted dates

180ml/6fl oz water

5 tsp. coconut cream (the cream from the top of a can of full fat coconut milk)

5 strawberries


Peel and remove the stone from the avocado, then peel the bananas.

Place the avocado, bananas, almond butter, cacao and maple syrup in a blender and blitz until fully combined and a thick and creamy texture is reached.

Divide the mixture into 5 small glasses (leaving a bit of room at the top of each glass for the date syrup and coconut cream) and place in the fridge to set.

Place the dates and water in a sauce pan and bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer. Keep mixing and mashing the dates until a smooth but thick syrup is reached.

Remove the mousse from the fridge and add a layer of the date syrup, then place back in the fridge for 5 minutes.

Open the can of coconut milk and spoon 1 teaspoon of the cream on top of each mousse glass, then top with a strawberry on each and serve or refrigerate until later.
