Alkalizing Lemon- Lime Mousse Parfait Serves 4-6
¼ cup fresh squeezed lime juice (key limes are best)
¼ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 large ripe avocado
¼ cup honey or to taste (or powdered stevia for non-sugar version)
dash sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or flavoring
1 cup homemade coconut whipped cream or Truwhip, divided (see below)*
1 cup fresh blueberries or blackberries
Garnish with mint leaves, lime or lemon wheels or just a little zest
In standard food processor pulse avocados a few times to cream, then blend in lime and lemon juices, honey, vanilla and salt until very smooth and creamy. Add 1/2 cup whipped cream and pulse a few times just until incorporated. This can all be done with an electric mixer as well, just cream the avocado first and fold in cream last. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving.
When ready to serve, layer berries, mousse, and whipped cream anyway you want into pretty parfait glasses and garnish.
This is an amazing, taste bud tantalizing experience! The best part – It is actually helps to balance the body’s pH!
Homemade Coconut Whipped Cream Serves 4 – 6
1 cup coconut cream*
2 teaspoon honey (or 1 teaspoon powdered stevia for a “no sugar” version)
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon lemon zest
Large chilled stainless bowl
Remove coconut cream from 1 can of chilled full fat coconut milk. (*Note: Allow can to sit undisturbed for at least 48 hours to allow the water and cream to separate. I keep a can on hand in the fridge at all times). Open can and scoop the cream off the top into your cold stainless bowl, (water will be at the bottom of the can – save for a smoothie). Add honey, vanilla and zest. With a hand held mixer or stand mixer, whip the cream until light and fluffy. Keep cold until ready to serve.
Truwhip is a packaged coconut whipped cream (like cool whip). It can be found in the freezer section of your whole foods store. It’s really delicious, but does contain a little sugar. After detox, this is a convenient alternative to homemade.
