Matcha Green Tea and Avocado Mousse Recipe

January 29, 2014 2 min read

I've seen Hunted and Gathered's Paleo Chocolate in a few health shops around Melbourne lately and been meaning to try it. I've always loved their packaging, and the chocolate tastes pretty damn good aswell. 

It's handmade here in Australia and is raw, vegan (I always thought the vegans and paleo crowds were staunch enemies but apparently when it comes to chocolate they have found some middle ground), gluten free and of course no added sugar - that is like kryptonite to a paleo-er.

Paleo Chocolate Packaging back

So I finally picked a packet (I could only afford one) and decided to pair it with some matcha of course.

Due to this current heatwave, I felt a refreshing, cooling dessert was the order of the day. This is my attempt to recreate a chilled matcha, avocado and banana mousse recipe by Chris over at TalesofaKitchen.

It is full of healthy fats from the avocado and the cashews, packed with antioxidants from the cacao and matcha, and tastes pretty good too!

Ingredients:

Mousse.

  • 1 tsp matcha tea powder
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 frozen banana
  • juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • Topping-
  • 30g Paleo Chocolate
  • handful of cashews
  • some frozen mixed berries

Green tea and avocado mousse ingredients with paleo chocolate

Method:

  • Add all the mousse ingredients and blend until they are well combined, light and fluffy.

Preparing a matcha mousse dessert

  • Scoop into 2 bowls (or one big bowl if you are alone) and add your toppings.

That's it. It takes about 10 minutes - except for freezing the bananas, do that earlier. You should get 2 serves out of it but I wouldn't blame you if you ate the whole lot!

Real matcha

Kenko is the best matcha I've found in Australia. Expensive, but genuine tea matcha unlike the cooking grade which is sold by some suppliers. Whisks up to a beautiful foam, taste and aroma excellent. Reminds me of matcha I bought in Kyoto.

A very nice gift pack

This Matcha tea taste really good. Best advise, only boil water to 80%.
Staff at Kenko are really helpful. A great alternative to coffee.

Best Matcha by far

I've tried several different brands of Matcha over the years and Kenko is by far the best, highest quality Matcha you can buy. I absolutely love it! Thankyou.

Electric Matcha whisk

This great little electric whisk froths up my morning matcha in no time. Easier than using a traditional hand held bamboo whisk. Comes with a compact storage case. Kenko orders are sent with love, wrapped in red tissue paper. Highly recommended.
