In this gluten-free dessert, the sinfully creamy Banana Mousse With Strawberry Chocolate Sauce is made with only nine ingredients. The silky mousse is topped with fresh strawberries lightly coated in freshly made chocolate sauce. All this deliciousness in a simple mousse made in minutes, including the cooking time. All you need to add is chilling and then eating 🙂

Equipment needed to make this banana mousse.

I am sorry to say, but you will need a food processor. The reason is, the entire mousse is made by whipping up the ingredients until thick and creamy. But the great thing about it is, this is the only piece of equipment you will need to make the heavenly banana mousse. 




2-minute strawberry chocolate sauce.

For the sauce, melt the butter in a saucepan, add cocoa and maple syrup. Now all you add is the fresh strawberries and set it aside until cooled. Once the strawberry chocolate sauce has cooled, spoon it over the chilled mousse – done!

What inspired me to make this gluten-free dessert having extra bananas that were too ripe to enjoy. Bananas are excellent in many recipes like muffinscakes or breakfast bread. They add nutrition and natural sweetness. So why not a mousse, I thought, no reason at all!

The mousse turned out incredibly delicious and super creamy with a tasty banana flavour. By adding the strawberry chocolate sauce, this simple banana mousse becomes a dreamy lip smacking gluten-free dessert.
