Today she’s sharing with us her Walnut Brownie Breakfast Mousse. Y to the UM!
Walnut Brownie Breakfast (or dessert) Mousse
This is a seriously yummy, seemingly decadent, breakfast mousse that is both sustaining AND totally good for you. Shed that guilt, tuck in and savour every mouthful – this little baby is full of goodness (and a whole heap of joy).
1.5 cups almond milk (or milk of choice), add more if you prefer a runnier smoothie
1/3 cup of walnuts
1/4 of an avocado
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 tablespoon raw cacao (plus extra if you like it intense)
2 heaped tablespoons maple or rice malt syrup, to taste
1 heaped teaspoon maca powder
1 heaped teaspoon raw cacao nibs
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of vanilla powder (or essence)
Leave half the walnuts and cacao nibs aside. Throw the rest of your ingredients into the blender and blend until really smooth. Top with the cacao nibs and remaining walnuts. I would recommend making this the night before or at least half an hour before you eat it to allow the chia seeds to soften.
