Did you know that today was national mousse day? In celebration, I wanted to share this original recipe I created in an attempt to use up some extra whipped cream from Thanksgiving. It’s incredibly light and silky smooth with a wonderful flavor reminiscent of a banana split – layered with fresh bananas and topped off with a sprinkling of cinnamon, this mousse will satisfy your sweet tooth without weighing you down!
Banana Split Mousse – serves 1
- 1 rounded T dark chocolate chips
- 1 rounded T white chocolate chips
- 1/2 C whipped cream
- 1/2 banana, sliced thinly
- cinnamon, dash
In a microwave safe bowl, combine white and dark chocolate chips and heat in microwave on medium until melted. Stir chocolate until smooth, then fold in whipped cream, one spoon at a time, until very thick and fluffy.
In a sundae bowl or glass, layer mousse and slices of banana. Top with more slices of banana and a light sprinkle of cinnamon.
