Raw Chocolate Mousse

Raw Chocolate Mousse

Certified psychology of eating teacher Nina Manolson shares her recipe for Raw Chocolate Mousse, which uses avocado in place of eggs. 

Ingredients

  • 2 medium ripe avocados
  • 1/2 Cup soaked and pitted dates
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract (she prefers the non-alcohol version)
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Dash of cayenne
  • 1 Teaspoon orange zest
  • 3-5 Tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 Cup water

Directions

In a  Vitamix or blender, blend all ingredients together well. Put in small dishes and refrigerate. This lasts several days in the fridge (if you can resist it for that long!).
