If you’re looking for a quick and easy dessert to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, look no further than this Avocado Mousse from my new book, More Quick Fix Vegan.  It doesn’t get easier (or quicker) than this creamy and delicious dessert.

I like it topped with raspberries, but you could top it with other fruit (blueberries or strawberries come to mind) or sprinkle it with toasted nuts for some crunch. (Thanks to Lea Jacobson for the photo.)

Avocado Mousse with Raspberries

Recipe from More Quick-Fix Vegan by Robin Robertson (c) 2014, Andrews McMeel Publishing.

2 ripe avocados, pitted and peeled and pitted
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1/3 cup almond milk or other nondairy milk
1 cup fresh ripe raspberries

In a food processor, combine the avocados and lime juice and process until smooth.  Add the sugar and almond milk and process until creamy and well blended.

Spoon into four dessert dishes and serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until chilled.

To serve, top with the raspberries.

Serves 4

Speaking of More Quick-Fix Vegan….I was thrilled to see one of the recipes from the book featured in The Washington Post this week.  Here’s the link for the article and recipe for Kale and Black-Eyed Peas with Smoky Grits.  Here’s the photo of the recipe from the Post (photo by Deb Lindsey).  Doesn’t it look great?

Robin that looks delicious! I also like the avocado mousse recipe. Can’t wait to try. I’m going to look for this book at my local bookstore and I’m also tempted to buy the new revised edition of Vegan Planet. I have the older one though and I wonder if it will bring enough new recipes to be worth having two. Thanks so much! Without your inspiration I would give up in the kitchen. : )

Wendy, I think you’d appreciate having the new edition — in addition to many new recipes, the others have been revised or updated, plus corrections have been made and the typography has been improved.

You are right Robin, I purchased this from my local bookstore. The minute I seen how nice it is and the format, I had to have it. Much better than the first. Thanks for updating it. I also purchased your “One Dish Vegan” and the “More Quick-Fix Vegan” They all look wonderful and I’m happy with my purchase. My favorite book of yours is “Vegan On the Cheap” Maybe in the near future you would consider a “More Vegan On the Cheap? ” Thanks again!!!!

Robin, I made the smoky grits this week and it really was delicious! The smoked paprika is a real flavor boost to the polenta. I think next time (and there will be a next time!) I’ll just throw in two 5 oz. bags of baby kale, save myself some work, and get the same yummy result. Thanks for sharing it with the Post, and us.

Glad you liked it Carole. Great idea to add the baby kale to the polenta. I love anything that saves work in the kitchen! :)
