|Raw vegan Chocolate Mousse|
In my last post I mentioned the Raw Food recipe book 'Easy Living Food'.
Karen started out by trying the Chocolate Fudge. In her excitement the ingredients became a bit confused with those of the Energy Balls recipe which was on the opposite page!
The result tasted wonderful but was too moist to be a fudge.
Almond flour to the rescue, and we ended up with a chocolate mousse.
It was quite rich so we served it up in cup cake size portions, topped of with a couple of fresh blueberries and a sprig of mint from the garden.
Our guests pronounced it wonderful, even Karen's brother who 'doesnt eat chocolate mousse'.
So the final ingredients were;
2 Cups pitted dates
1 Cup water
twist of Himalayan rock salt
dash of essence - we used orange or almond
2 Tablespoons cacao powder
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1 Cup almond flour
Blend the whole lot together.
You can always adjust the water or almond flour to get the right consistency.
Spoon into whatever small dishes or holder you want to serve up in.
Keep chilled in the fridge.
You can garnish or serve up with whatever fruit takes your fancy.
We used blueberries and mint.
We are loving this raw food concept. We do not have a Dehydrater yet, but we ordered take out Raw Food Pizzas the other day, and they were fantastic. The taste was divine, and they were very filling. I could only eat half a pizza in a sitting. In Cape Town you can order them here
