Banana Chocolate Mousse

This banana chocolate mousse is delicious and so easy to make. This mousse is a great way to use up ripe bananas when you’re in the mood for a nutritious treat.

Ingredients and substitutions

I like to use ripe bananas with plenty of brown spots when making this recipe. You can use bananas that are a bit less ripe if you prefer, but the end result won’t be quite as sweet.

I prefer to use chopped dark chocolate in this mousse, but you can substitute chocolate chips or any type of chopped chocolate you like.

Vanilla extract complements the other flavors in this mousse. I recommend using pure vanilla extract as opposed to artificial vanilla flavoring if possible.

How to make it

Add the chopped chocolate to a pot on the stove set to low heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until the chocolate has melted, then immediately remove the pot from the heat.
