Try this healthier dessert – creamy avocado mousse sweetened with medjool dates and served with spiced oranges.


100g pitted medjool dates

2 large ripe avocados

1/3 cup (35g) NESTLÉ BAKERS’ CHOICE Cocoa

Cocoa nibs (optional – see note), to serve

Chopped pistachios, to serve
Spiced orange

2 oranges

1/2 cup (175g) raw honey (see note)

2 cinnamon quills

6 cardamom pods, bruised

3 whole cloves


Step 1
Soak dates in a bowl of warm water for 10 minutes, then drain and roughly chop. Set aside.
Step 2
Meanwhile, peel and segment oranges, then squeeze the juice from the remaining flesh. Transfer segments and juice to a small saucepan over medium-high heat with honey cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, and 2 tbs water. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 12-15 minutes until syrup has thickened and reduced. Strain syrup through a sieve and set aside to cool completely. Reserve orange segments and discard any remaining solids.
Step 3
Whiz the avocado, cocoa powder, and reserved dates and syrup in a food processor until smooth and creamy. Spoon into four 125ml serving glasses and chill for at least 1 hour to firm up.
Step 4
Serve mousse chilled, topped with orange segments, pistachios and cocoa nibs, if using.
