ChocOrange Mousse. Just plants & love

ChocolateOrangeGanache{20141211122052}.jpg

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.

What are New Earth Chocolates?

unnamed[3].jpg

New Earth Chocolate is the chocolate from the future.

 

 It is what Nature has always intended for us.. before the Food Industry had its way with it.

This kind of chocolate is free from chemicals, unhealthy additives, white sugar or milk powder. It is created with natural high quality ingredients ONLY - high vibe medicinal cacao, untreated nuts and nutriceuticals (super foods, food grade essential oils, and spices) and new earth sweeteners, such as coconut or date sugar, maple/yacon syrup, raw honey, stevia, etc.

 

Quality, freshness and health consciousness must be a motto of anyone creating food in this world.

 New Earth Chocolates are kind and loving not only to the palate.. but to our DNA and our cells.

 One can safely say,

"It is medicine that tastes like chocolate"

           Now that we know that, we can make a choice - to continue buying old world chocolates filled with additives and chemicals, made by those who dont care about our HEALTH OR switch to the New Earth Chocolates - clean, plantbased, medicinal, made by those who care about WELLNESS, CONSCIOUSNESS and EARTH.

The Best Chocolate Bar. You can make it!

20170306_162507~2.jpg

Tools: blender, bowls, cutting board, spoon, chocolate bar mold

Ingredients to make the filling:

- 1 cup non roasted pistachio nuts ( it is fun to experiment with other nuts)

- 1/4 cup raw coconut oil, melted

- 2 T maple syrup (or raw honey)

- A pinch of Himalayan salt

Ingredients to make chocolate:

- 4 T raw cacao powder

- 2 T new Earth sweetener of your choice - raw coconut crystals, coconut sugar, agave or maple syrup, etc

- 4 T raw cacao butter, melted

- a touch of vanilla powder (optional)

Step 1. Blend all the ingredients to make a creamy nut filling and transfer it to a bowl. Let it rest.

Step 2. In another bowl mix all the ingredients for the chocolate. Make sure it is smooth and silky.  Keep mixing until the mixture is cooled down. 7-10 minutes at least.

Step 3. Pour the chocolate into a chocolate bar mold half way ONLY and transfer the mold into the refrigerator for 10-15 mins.

Step 4. Get the mold out, Fill the future chocolate bar with the nut cream, staying away from the edges of the mold.

Step 5. Pour the chocolate over the nut cream, filling the mold to the full. It takes a little skill to make the right proportion between the layers, but.... practice makes a master, right? Once you do it once, you will become a chocolate pro.

Leave your creation in the refrigerator for at least a few hours. Then call your friends and family for the chocolate medicine party.

Thank you for your healing ripples in the world. Together we can change the beat of the world.

New Earth Chocolate. This is How We Make It at Home

Go-Nuts Baskets{2015329121853}.jpg
  • 2 T raw cacao powder
  • 2 T sweetener of your choice, such as coconut flower/date sugar OR Maple/Agave syrup
  • A pinch of Himalayan salt
  • 3 T raw cacao butter or raw coconut oil, melted
  • ¼ t vanilla seeds
  • Nuts of your choice, chopped (almonds, walnuts, pistachios, pecans, cashews, macadamias, etc.)

 Combine cacao powder with salt, vanilla and sweetener. Add the melted cacao butter or coconut oil. Mix well.

When the chocolate fluid of life is ready, lovingly pour it into the little round forms to create the baskets. Place them in the refrigerator for no longer then ten minutes to semi harden.

While waiting, prepare the nuts and design your creations, giving it loving thought. Get the chocolate baskets out and fill them up with nuts any way you wish. This is your chance to chocolate rock-n-roll.

Transfer back to the refrigerator for another 30 minutes.

A tip: Little mint leaves, stripes of orange peel, cacao nibs, dried or fresh flowers, shredded coconut, edible gold flakes, and much more can be used to make this creation absolutely rock.

You did not know that you were a real raw chocolatier. Did ya?
