Chocolate Kiwi Pistachio Mousse Cake

Chocolate_Kiwi_Pistachio_Mousse_Cake_Recipe_001

It’s a green cake day, well not really green because the filling is brown, but green on the outside!

What’s even more exciting was, after I decided it was going to be a green-themed cake, I discovered I had some kiwi fruits left! YAY, this is going to work out great.

Plus, avocado is secretly green, so ha!

But anyway, I wanted to use green grapes to sweeten the crust. Though it’s not overly sweet, you won’t be able to tell if you’re eating everything together. The reason why I put one tablespoon coconut sugar is because I find that coconut sugar is slightly less sweet than maple syrup, and 2 tablespoons of maple syrup would be overdoing it a little.

My favourite thing about eating things like this is, I’m just like gulping half of the cake and feeling happy that this is healthy! Otherwise, I’d feel so guilty for putting evil stuff in my body that I’m going to spend forever getting rid of. This goes especially the avocado, absolutely guilt free! In a way, I still can’t believe how good it tastes with chocolate flavour.

1 medium avocado

1 tablespoon coconut sugar
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Topping
1 kiwi fruit
1 teaspoon cacao nibs

Spoon it out onto a mini springform pan and make the shape of a bowl with the crust. Put it in the freezer while you prepare the chocolate layer.

Also, wash out the blender if you can.

Chocolate Middle: Spoon all the flesh out of the avocado and put it in the blender, along with the cacao powder, coconut oil, coconut sugar, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Blend on full speed and stir it around once in a while until everything is smooth and no more lumps are found.

Spoon this out onto the middle of the cake, be sure to use a spoon to flatten the top and make it pretty, then put it back into the freezer for about an hour or two until it hardens.

After the chocolate cake sets, chop the kiwi fruit in half, then scoop out the middle and chop it into small slices (whatever shape you want) and decorate the top of the cake with it, add a little cacao nibs and cacao powder and serve.
