A chocolate banana mousse recipe is probably all you need to cool down during the summer. And even when it’s not the hot weather season, if you just really like having new desserts to try for a change, this is another sweet treat meant to impress. Invite friends over to your house to show off this fancy-looking, and yet absolutely quick and easy recipe! Hosting a party? You can also make various mousse dessert recipes for your guests to choose from. Whether it’s a fruity peach mousse or light vanilla mousse, They are all easy to follow and almost require no baking procedure.

Don’t you just love an intensely sweet chocolate dessert? This chocolate banana mousse recipe uses bittersweet chocolate for that strong bitter taste. But the natural sweetness from the bananas counterbalances the bitterness, and gives it a smooth, creamy texture!

Serve this in pretty glasses like a champagne flute or a martini glass. Use a pastry bag with a small-mouth tip to transfer the mousse and have more control over it. Another way is to pipe the mousse into a glass halfway, add some berries, then fill the other half with more mousse. Though, just putting them into jars and slicing up some fruits along with crushed chocolates to make a nice garnish is the easier route.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is my chocolate banana mousse runny?

The whipped cream probably wasn’t stiff enough which is a result of not chilling them beforehand. Another possible reason is that the fruits weren’t drained well. To counter this, you will need a cornstarch. Add a tablespoon of cornstarch to a cup of water to make a roux mixture, heat it up, and add this into the mousse.

Why is my chocolate banana mousse grainy?

It’s important to let the chocolate cool at room temperature before you mix them with the other ingredients. That is because it could cook the cream causing it to firm up into tiny grains without intending to.
