Chocolate and Avocado Mousse ...

a la Sadie Frost.
I didn't see the whole programme; just caught the end when I was waiting for the Apprentice and to be honest I tried this because I believed it wouldn't work. I was wrong, it does and is super delish.
(This is not their recipe just my interpretation of what I saw)

1 200g bar of dark chocolate(see previous post on chocolate cake for American equivalent)
2 large ripe avocadoes
the juice and zest of 1-2 flavourful oranges.

Melt the chocolate gently until runny. Halve and peel the avocadoes, roughly chop and place in a liquidizer (or food processor) with the juice and zest of the orange. Blend on high speed and add the chocolate. Blend again until completely smooth. Place in the refridgerator and allow to set.
These ingredients make about 3/4 of a pint.

Oh good god. I think something inappropriately sexual may have taken place while I was reading that.

It sounds yucky, but then, Cilla Black's Oxo cube rubbed onto an orange sounded pretty horrible too!

The real test was the children, the painter was sceptical but game. So I didn't tell the kids. Afterwards Surrealo Son, who had seen me writing the post said. "I thought you were going to make us eat chocolate and avocado". When I told him he didn't even mind. Would be really lovely served with biscotti.

I'm going to get the ingredients for that when I go shopping in 23 minutes.

On another note: if I copy the minigallery graphic and link code to my rantz, will you and The Painter get points for that? If so, I will...
