Oh, what a decadent Paleo treat this is! Except it is made from all healthy ingredients and is gluten, dairy and processed sugar free.
The mousse can also be used as part of a fancy dessert such as below where it is on top of a chocolate tart (see recipe in dessert section) and topped with a chocolate ball (see recipe section). The strawberries add so much colour to the dish and l topped it all with some finely sliced Loving Earth Organic Raw Chocolate.
In this picture l added the mousse to a berry pancake which was made using Buckwheat & Coconut flours, eggs, water, chia seeds and berries.
This mouse will last a few days and is better after it has set in the fridge and even better the next day, although a taste as soon as it is made is definitely advised as it is so delicious!
The ingredients for the mousse are:
2 ripe avocados, peeled and stone removed
40g raw organic cacao powder (approximately 1 generous tablespoon)
2 tablespoons raw organic honey
85g medjool dates, pitted & soaked in warm water for 20 minutes, then drained (I usually can’t wait the 20 minutes and just give them a quick soak).
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 vanilla pod, split lengthways & seeds scraped (I often use organic vanilla essence-1/2 a teaspoon)
Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. That’s it. Now taste test!
I have called this chocolate mousse extreme because for me this is an extreme taste sensation and indulgence. Living with food intolerances, sensitivities and a limited diet is a daily challenge and a dish like this can brighten up my whole world.
