I tried this raw chocolate mousse at Earth Fare. The gRAWnola guy was doing a “cooking” demo although, of course, there is no cooking required and he let me scrape the bowl. This recipe is beyond yum.
- 3/4 cup dates soaked until very soft with pits removed
- 2 avocados
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup almond butter
- 3/4 cup cacao powder
- 1/2 cup agave
Combine all ingredients in a food processor until very smooth.
The recipe card I picked up doesn’t credit anybody so apologies to the raw chef I’m not crediting.
Argh, one of the times I hate having an almond allergy! I bet I could do something with sun butter and maybe rice milk for dairy free though, hmm.
Oh yes–I’m sure that would work. I love sun butter!!
I actually like to make this recipe with Brazil Nuts! It’s even better, just soak the Brazil nuts in water overnight in the refrigerator. Either put them through a masticating juicer, or just put the nuts and the nutmilk (you could use rice milk, or any other type of ‘milk’) in the blender to really puree the nuts, and you will be good to go!
I’m sure this recipe has incredible texture and flavor. I’m just not ready for the carb load of the dates and the agave syrup. I’ll try this sometime for a pot-luck treat, though.
