Last night while doing some research on raw food, raw cacao, and all things raw, I came across a recipe for raw chocolate pudding. While it sounded delish, I decided I could make it better and added my own coconut twist – you know how I love me some coconuts!! I ended up with a raw chocolate mousse that was so awesome it deserved it’s own blog post.
Here’s the recipe for Rockin’ Raw Chocolate Mousse
2 avocados sliced
1/4 cup organic raw cacao powder
1/4 cup agave nectar
2 T vanilla extract
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 T coconut oil
Mix all ingredients except coconut milk in a blender or a bowl. Gradually add in the coconut milk to the consistency you prefer. You may also use less agave nectar as it did turn out pretty sweet.
To the right is a picture of the real deal. As you can see it’s not green and no it doesn’t taste like guacamole! The avocados are completely masked by the cacao powder. I couldn’t believe it myself. I was all set to take a bite of chocolate flavored guacamole. Nope. Instead it was decadent, rich, chocolate moussey goodness! Enjoy!
