I LOVE a creamy mousse for dessert. When it has the perfect amount of sweetness, and that soft delicate texture! I want to share a recipe for you to make your own at home that wont sacrifice your health! A mousse that is full of brain food to keep you you smiling and happy. In order to keep our brains functioning optimally is is important to be feeding them properly. When we are eating enough brain food this is one less thing to be holding us back from blissful happiness.
This recipe is full of antioxidants and good healthy fats! Our brains thrive off of fats. Not your greasy fast food, ridiculously deep fried dripping in oil type of fat! But the good healthy fats full of Omega 3 and 6! When you are getting enough omegas in your diet (specifically Omega 3) your mood will improve, you will have better memory, Brain fog can improve, depression will be helped… and this is just the benefits to do with brain health!
The Ingredients: (Makes 2 servings)
- 2 avocados
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/2 cup blueberries
Avocados and coconut oil are jam packed with healthy fats to keep you smiling! The blueberries are full of antioxidants, and they give it the perfect purple hue to bring a little more happiness, and Purple into your life! Maple syrup, although it is a sugar is actually is lower on the glycemic scale than your regular cane sugar. It also has some vitamins and minerals (iron, magnesium, manganese, zinc and potassium) and antioxidants!
What you’re going to do:
- Place the avocados in your blender. Blend them untill they are a smooth and creamy texture
- Add in your blueberries, coconut oil, and maple syrup and blend until they have become completely smooth and creamy!
