Ingredients tip from chef Thomas Sixt
Prepare delicious chocolate mousse, this is also possible vegan, without cream and without tofu.

5. Prepare the Avocado Chocolate Mousse with Bananas

Peel the cold bananas and mash them finely with a fork, then place them in a mixing bowl. Next, process the avodacos:

I use the Hass variety because they are always ripe. Halve the avocados with a knife, take out the stone and place the flesh with the finely pressed banana.

The skins of the halved avocados can be easily scraped out with a spoon.

Next, pour lemon juice over the fruit and sprinkle over the vanilla sugar.

6. Mix the Chocolate and Fruit, Please Pay Attention To the Temperature!

Beat the prepared fruit quickly with a hand mixer for about 2 minutes.

Then pour in the melted chocolate and cocoa and continue stirring to prepare a creamy mousse.

Then quickly pour into glasses and refrigerate for at least an hour.

Note: Cold fruit and lip-warm chocolate can be mixed well, if the chocolate is too hot the consistency will suffer!
