Persimmon + Banana Mousse

20131222-211054.jpg

Simple, quick, vegan + healthy. What more could you ask for?

Ingredients:

1 fully ripe hachiya persimmon
1 large spotty banana
7 oz (approx 1/2 can) coconut cream
Roasted coconut chips

Instructions:

1. cut the persimmon in half
2. with a spoon, scoop the flesh out + discard completely of all the skin
3. place the ingredients in the food processor
4. pulse until smooth
5. serve in glass dessert dishes, as such shown below, + refrigerate
6. before serving, garnish each pudding with roasted coconut chips

If you’re driving to a festive party but cannot transport the dessert dishes, fill up the same way in 4 oz mason jars. Take them to the party + as a little gift, let them keep the jar. Maybe tie a ribbon around it or even some baker’s twine. Get creative!

Serves:

12-14

This is what your persimmon should look like.

The coconut cream I use is from Trader Joe’s.

Another Trader Joe’s product: their delicious roasted coconut chips.

This is the way my mousse looks when styled for a party at home.

I like to serve it with mini dessert spoons.

If the dessert were styled in mason jars to take for a party, this is how I set them up. With lids on of course!
