When I was looking for a dessert from Sao Tome and Principe, I found a recipe for banana mousse and decided to garnish it with chocolate from Sao Tome – Alegio Chocolate. This recipe is so easy and so tasty. We liked it so much that we made it twice in two days while we were in the mountains.
- 2 C organic heavy whipping cream
- ¼ C organic coconut sugar
- 2 ripe bananas
- Splash of pure vanilla extract
In a medium mixing bowl, mash the bananas and sugar together until you get an even puree. Stir in a splash of vanilla.
In a large mixing bowl, whip the cream until stiff peaks form.
Fold the banana mixture into the whipped cream.
Spoon the mousse into serving glasses. Cover and chill for at least 30 minutes. To serve, garnish with shavings of chocolate.
On night two, D and R made the mousse; they wanted to garnish with banana slices as the shaved chocolate.
