If you love chocolate as much as I do you have to make this Banana Chocolate Mousse. This creamy, simple recipe does not have eggs. It is safe to serve to your pregnant friends and young children. The secret is to add chia seeds but don't tell them. When I came home yesterday I made this recipe in two minutes. I tried a spoonful right away and it was so good. It is best to cool the mousse in the refrigerator, for couple hours before serving, but I did not want to wait that long.
The quality of the chocolate that you are using in this recipe is very important. I am a big fan of organic chocolate . I love dark but also sea salt, toffee and ginger and almond. In the middle on the afternoon I love a piece of chocolate with tea. If you love green tea you could pair it with Almond or Milk chocolate. For herbal tea lovers dark chocolate is a great match. I love Rooibos tea at night and Maya Gold Chocolate is very good with this kind of tea.
And don't forgot Mother's Day this week-end. Make a basket of goodies with GChocolate bars and tea. That's a real treat!
