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.
