Laura's Super Healthy Raw Chocolate Mousse

Raw healthy chocolate Mousse
I have really wanted to try this out for some time. Chocolate mousse made using avocado and other completely raw ingredients! 

Doesn't it sound fabulous, the idea of a healthy dessert! Although I was excited by the idea, I couldn't quite see how it was going to taste like the real thing, but it sounded too good to pass up and I eventually came up with a recipe of my own by combining several I had seen online. 
Raw chocolate mousse recipe

  • 3 Small Avocados
  • Beans from a Vanilla pod
  • 75g virgin coconut oil
  • 100g Raw Cacao powder
  • 150g Agave nectar
Mix everything together well in your blender until it forms a smooth paste, then dish up and chill for an hour or so. I decided to top it off with a few blueberries. The recipe made enough to serve 4 people. Just a little more than pictured below. It is quite rich so you don't need a lot!

Raw all natural chocolate mousse
It was absolutely delicious! Chris even said it tasted exactly like the usual cream based mousse I usually make, and I would agree that it wasn't too far off! What a revelation!

It was so simple to make too, and doesn't require too many ingredients, which is a pet peeve of mine especially with 'raw' recipes. I am looking forward to making this again in the future.
