Choc-Orange Mousse Pots

These mouth-watering sweet treats are packed with beauty and health-boosting ingredients.

Coconut cream is a rich source of B vitamins, to help support energy levels and nerves; skin repairer vitamin E, and essential minerals including anti-ageing selenium that is deficient in Australian soils.

Avocados are rich in anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats, while both avocados and bananas supply super-antioxidant Vitamin C, to encourage tissue growth and repair. Dates provide essential calcium and iron as well as collagen-building manganese.

The final touch – cacao, an Amazonian superfood with 40 times the antioxidant of blueberries – and The Beauty Chef’s Chocolate BODY Inner Beauty Powder to shore up gut health and enrich deliciousness.
