Banana, Mocha & Pistachio Jello-Mousse

Serves 6-8 | Preparation 15-20 min

This is a vegan recipe; made up today. It was intended to be a cake filling but the cake (with e.g. citrus juices, walnut oil and pistachio-flour mix) didn’t set in 1,5 hours in the oven and went straight into the bin. Luckily the filling works as a separate dessert.

Ingredients
2 bananas​
16 g (1 pack; 4 pouches) Vegegel (agar agar -based gelatine alternative)​
200 ml/g strong coffee​
5 tablespoons cocoa powder​
5 tablespoons runny honey​
70 g (~135 ml) pistachios​
~300 ml/g cashew milk​
2-3 tablespoons potato starch​
50 ml/g water​
_______________________________________________________________​
A handful of whole pistachios and a stem of mint for garnish​

Instructions

Crush the pistachios in a blender/mixer into kibble. Make ~200 ml strong coffee and keep it hot. Warm the cashew milk in a pan or pot on medium heat. Mix the potato starch with water and mix the blend with the cashew milk. Wait until the mixture bubbles and starts to thicken. Take aside. Mash the bananas with a fork, liquify the honey in the microwave (~30 seconds) and mix the honey, pistachios, cocoa powder and thickened cashew milk with the banana mush. Dilute the Vegegel in hot coffee and add it in the mixture. Mix well and let cool in room temperature. Add extra cashew milk if needed and mix well. Garnish with whole pistachios and mint.

presumably it is possible to substitute the honey for something vegan such as maple syrup?
honey is not actually vegan. It harms the bees in removing it by all sorts of reasons not least of all removing an important food store for them to survive.
