Christmas Day Desserts

vlogmas

In my opinion the best desserts are ones that can be enjoyed all year round not just during the festive period.  Don’t get me wrong I love Christmas pudding, yule log and stollen but I tend to eat them throughout December and like to have a couple of less indulgent desserts on offer after lunch.

Avocado Chocolate Mousse

 

This Mousse might look like it’s full of cream so you might be surprised to find that it’s actually made with Avocado, yes you read that right! Avocado.   To make this mousse you need to make sure that your avocado is ripe, don’t try it unless it’s squishy or it will taste bitter.  You will also need 75ml of milk (almond, oat, soya or plain old cows milk), 2 tablespoons of agave nectar if you are serving to babies under 1 or honey if you are serving to anyone over the age of 1, 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder and 1 teaspoon of almond extract or vanilla extract.

Blend until smooth and decant into two bowls, chill for at least two hours and enjoy.

Fruit meringue is always a crowd pleaser, like many of my vlogmas dishes this is so simple to make and takes minimal effort.  You will need a pot of crème fraiche, icing sugar, blueberries and raspberries, mix together and sandwich between mini meringues.

 

I hope you have enjoyed this vlogmas series and that you can use some of my recipes or tips to wow your friends and family with your meals over the festive period.
