Raw Chocolate Mousse

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

chocolate-mousse1Tonight I made some little Chocolate Mousse cups for my husband to take to work with him tomorrow.  I have to laugh, it’s just like making cupcakes for your child’s school function. “Don’t forget your pudding cups for your workers today honey.”  :)  I had some beautiful avocados in the fridge that were begging to be used.  They were perfectly ripe and I knew they weren’t going to last too much longer so I found this recipe by Jennifer Cornbleet.  You could use this recipe to make parfaits or even in a tart pan with a nut crust.

Ingredients: yields 2 cups

  • 1/2 cup  medjool dates, soaked
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup mashed avocados, ripe!
  • 3/4 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup water

Preparation:

  1. In your food processor, using the “S” blade,  combine the dates, agave and vanilla until nice and smooth.
  2. Add the mashed avocados and cacao powder.  Blend until nice and smooth, stopping the processor every once in a while to scrap the sides down.
  3. Add the water and blend until nice and creamy.
  4. The mousse will keep for 3 days in the fridge or 2 weeks in the freezer.
  5. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
  6. Top with Lemon Vanilla Frosting.

    Today’s treat was soooo pretty and very yummy as well. Had cheese ravioli for lunch and it was a perfect match afterward for desert – it cleansed the palate of the pasta sauce!

    Thank you for sharing,

    Amie Sue, this has got to be one of the best things I’ve ever eaten! Thanks for sharing it (and the recipe) with me. =)

    Thank you, Amie Sue, the chocolate mousse was delightful and beautiful. I loved the slight tartness of lemon against the chocolate, and the smoothness of both the frosting and the pudding base.

    This is just as good without the frosting. I have never been a frosting fan, so I made mine without. Super yummy! Now I can have pudding, watch my blood sugar, and not have all of those horrific chemicals! Thanks for another great recipe!

      Your welcome Val. It is good without the frosting, I do agree! Chocolate Mousse would taste great on a flip flop if you ask me. hehe Have a great evening, amie sue

    I have a question. Some of my other family members think this is entirely too sweet for their tastes (had company). Can I decrease the agave and just increase the water? Or is the agave helping with the texture? Thanks so much!

    These are amazing! I’ve recently started making raw desserts because I feel better afterwards than after eating cakes with loads of sugar. This chocolate mousse is the best raw dessert I’ve ever tasted. I was only going to taste a tiny bit and then wait until after dinner but I couldn’t resist. The taste was amazing and the texture perfect. I now prefer these to regular chocolate mousse. Thank you so much for the recipe.

      That is wonderful Soley! So happy that you found a guilt free dessert for yourself. :) This is a great recipe to help introduce others to if they are not familiar with raw foods. Have a great day! amie sue

  7. OMG!!! this recipe was great!!! I told my husband that I was going to make him a chocolate pudding from fruit and he was skeptical… Instead of the frosting I cut up some banana slices and placed them on top and then sprinkled a few crushed macadamia and cashew nuts on top and he was flabbergasted at the results!!! Home run again with your recipes :) thanks for all the fun taste bud experiences!!!
