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 as well. 

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 Tales of a Kitchen.

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!

Organic Matcha Ceremonial Grade - 100g Bag (3.5oz)

Lovely green color powder

First matcha purchase!

So far I have made tea cookies, raw nut/fruit balls, smoothies, and plain matcha with cashew milk and it's all good to me! Don't have much to compare it to but a chain coffee shop latte experience years ago. I learned the amazing benefits that make the cost of matcha well worth the price.

I have yet to receive my order

This review is not about the quality of the set, but based on my customer service experience. Placed my order on April 13th, got shipping notification on April 14th, and the last shipping notification I got was April 16th saying USPS was awaiting the item in Buena Vista, CA. Emailed customer service April 22nd and received a response the same day from a member of your team saying he would inform me once he receives info from usps. I also contact usps and they stated they have no information regarding the package. As of today, April 27th, I have yet to receive any information about my order. This was meant as a gift that will now be late. Was very excited to try the set and the matcha, but this experience makes me doubt if I will order from Kenko again, unfortunately. Would appreciate this problem being solved as soon as possible. Thank you.
