Recipe: Raw chocolate mousse

For Easter I decided to make a raw chocolate mousse. It was divine!!

Of course this treat could be made any time. I topped it with raspberries and Loving Earth raw chocolate.

I used quite an old and powerless blender, the result was still amazing but not quite as smooth as I wanted. A vitamix or equivalent would be perfect!

Here is my recipe

Ingredients:

I whole medium avocado

Flesh of 2 young coconuts (mine had quite thick flesh as they had matured a bit since leaving Thailand I gather. It was still effective.)

1/4 cup of coconut oil

1/2 cup of water

5 tablespoon of raw cacao (or to your desired strength, taste test!)

A vanilla pod or 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla powder

Approx 1/2 a teaspoon of stevia (taste test.)

Method:

Place water and coconut oil in a pan and warm until oil melts.

Place coconut flesh and avocado in blender. Add the water and melted oil and blend until smooth.

Add stevia, vanilla and raw cacao. Blend until ingredients are well blended and very smooth. Make sure you taste test for cacao strength and sweetness.

Place in separate bowls or one large bowl and place in the freezer for an hour and then the fridge for another half an hour.

Serve with raspberries and roughly chopped raw chocolate or your choice of topping.

Serves 3 to 5 people depending of how big the serves are.

Enjoy! x
