Beware the Falling Avocados is available as an eBook or paperback from Saturday 18 June. Here is the first chapter, in which we return to Zambia after a month’s holiday in the UK and I encounter creepy-crawlies in the dark…
In my last post I promised that I would share some avocado recipes. I do not claim to be a chef, so you will discover a number of my recipes are haphazard, made up of what I can find in the cupboard to substitute for not having x, y or z. (That may also explain some of my children’s comments…)
As we are going ‘back to the beginning’ today, here is the first one I made with all the right ingredients. It was quite some time ago, and more done out of intrigue as a friend had posted it on Facebook. So, in my house, it is quite simply known as Anneliese’s Chocolate Mousse.
Take 1 banana, 1 avocado (recommend ripe fruit, ready to be mashed), 1 tbsp cocoa powder, 2-3 dessert spoons of honey, 1/4 cup water and a splash of vanilla essence. Put all ingredients into a bowl and blend well.
Put into small pots, refrigerate and (a little later) serve!
I like recipes that are this simple. The children liked it too – not leaving any for me to lick out of the bowls. (Their verdict may be swayed by it being chocolate.) It is also both gluten- and dairy-free.
Withenay score: ???
Why not give it a try and let me know what you think?
Don’t forget: Beware the Falling Avocados is available as a paperback and eBook from 18 June 2016.
