key lime mouse



small avocado, 1/2 lime

blended



mmmmhh




Sugar-free, super simple, key lime mouse.

1 small soft ripe avocado (about 9 Tablespoons)
1/2 juice of a lime (or if you can find a key lime...)..also you can add lime to your taste
3 tablespoons coconut milk from native forest (in can, they don't use BPA)
pinch of salt
1 dropper vanilla stevia extract (i use the now brand glyercine based)
5 Tablespoons coconut oil

toss everything except coconut oil in a blender (i use a magic bullet type thing for this) and blend!
heat coconut oil to liquid, add, and blend!

finito! be careful, you may eat the whole thing! if you put it in the fridge it will get much more solid....
be creative, add 2 tablespoons of cashew or mac nut butter for extra richness, make a creamcheese topping..
i love to add some ground flax (not presoaked to avoid toxins!) it gives the mouse a built in crust taste. i love it for breakfast. or sandwiched between too perfect paleo cookies with some cream cheese frosting... recipes for those in previous post...
enjoy!
