There are gazillions of great recipes these days.
Some are healthier then others.
Very often we compromise on the health factor to get the taste of our treats.
I personally believe that we can have it all these days, and I love-love-love showing how it is done.

This Chocolate Mousse is easy to make, it is loved by ALL- non-vegans, plant-based, raw foodies, even kids love it (just do not tell them it is made with avocado).
Do not take my word for it, create this treat this week, and give yourself and your loved ones a real treat.

I had an honor to show how this mousse is done in a beautiful restaurant in Kathmandu yesterday (been inspiring conscious cafes & restaurants for the last decade) and while this inspiration (and the taste in my mouth) is fresh - I decided to share it with you here.

Ingredients to make two servings:

  • 2 ripe avocados, stoned and peeled

  • 4 T raw cacao powder

  • 2-3 T coconut nectar OR Maple Syrup OR 5-6 medjool dates (whatever you like or have)

  • 1/4 t vanilla seeds (optional)

  • 3 T raw coconut oil or cacao butter, melted*

  • 2 T fresh squeezed orange juice

  • 1 T finely grated orange peel and/or 2 drops food grade orange oil

  • A few slices of fresh orange and mint leaves for presentation

Scrape the flesh from the avocados into a blender.

Add the cacao, vanilla, orange juice, coconut oil or cacao butter, sweetener of your choice and orange peel and/or orange oil. Blend all the ingredients together into a creamy concoction.

Prepare the presentation part by arranging a few slices of fresh orange with mint leaves at the bottom of each glass.

Spoon the mousse on top of the orange. Gently shake the glass, letting the mixture ‘hug’ the fruit and leaves.
Place the decadent desserts in the refrigerator for a few hours. Before serving, garnish with more orange and mint leaves, as well as cacao.

A tip: Avocados do not taste like avocados when they are hanging out with raw cacao and orange. However, if you happen to dislike them, replace with frozen bananas

Enjoy.


Take good care of yourself and your loved ones, so together we take care of the world we live in!
Thank you for being a part of my journey.
