The raw chocolate phenomena

I adore chocolate, my Nan was a chocoholic and she lived until the ripe old age of 93!!

I decided to make a nutrition packed raw chocolate mousse for my book group friends, I have dietary requirements that means I avoid all dairy and all gluten products, leaving me constantly without pudding!

The secret ingredient in my recipe is avocado   No one at my book group could guess what the ingredients were, well they did eventually, after eating the entire pot!

So this is how you make it:

Ingredients:

4 avocados (very ripe)
4 tablespoons or raw cocoa
4 dates soaked in warm water (use drained)
a squeeze of brown rice syrup or a few drops of stevia
2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
splash of home made almond or hazelnut milk
a little Himalayan rock salt

This is nutrient rich, bursting with antioxidants, fiber, potassium, vitamin E, B vitamins and healthy fats!!

How to make it:
Slice the avocados in half lengthways, scoop out the green avocado flesh and place it into a food processor, adding all the other ingredients slowly until smooth and delicious.   You can add variations at this point, such as cinnamon, chillies or chilli powder, orange zest, desiccated coconut or some toasted nuts.

I like mine plain, it’s so delicious.  It can be eaten as a posh dinner party dessert, daily pot of super antioxidant food, and even chocolate spread!  Serve in glasses, pretty pots with a few berries, let it set in the fridge or serve immediately.

I don’t think you will be disappointed.

Hope you like it!!
