THE ‘I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S NOT REAL’ RAW CHOC MOUSSE
Yep, the title of this post says it all. Raw, creamy, moorish, delicious, indulgent chocolate mousse that is so far from the real (naughty, sugar-laden, unhealthy) version they may as well be from different planets.
It’s good. And not in that ‘if you frown and purse your lips it almost tastes good’ kind of way that some raw foods claim their fame. This is good enough to fool my partner, who is my measuring stick… If he loves it then I know you amazing foodies will swoon over it.
You’d think I have a really insane sweet tooth but I mostly enjoy the experience of enjoying a treat that is so good for me. I feel like I have a little secret, I almost feel smug.
So here it is. You want chocolate, you want mousse, you want delicious, mostly you want healthy?
I bring you this:
RAW CACAO & AVOCADO MOUSSE
1.5-2 Ripe Hass Avocaodos
3 heaped tbls of cacao
2-3 heaped tbls of coconut cream (take from the top of a can of coconut cream after its been in the fridge)
1 tbls vanilla powder/vanilla bean/pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon stevia or 1-2 tbls of raw honey
Blend until you have a glossy, thick, firm mousse. Refrigerate immediately. When ready serve with fresh fruit, crushed nuts or enjoy on its own.
This is such a lovely treat to enjoy for Christmas with a bowl of cherries to dip in with. Not to mention how super impressed your family and friends will be.
I promise, with the right ratio of ingredients the avocado is undetectable. So play around with the balance if you need to but up the vanilla, cacao and coconut before the honey. The less sugar the better.
Saha to you,
