I had some avocados that were on their way out, so what is a girl to do? Make raw chocolate mousse! A reader really wanted me to share the recipe, so here it is! And it’s so easy to make! Happy Friday!

This is a chocolaty dessert that you don’t have to feel guilty for eating! Avocados make the base for this mousse instead of heart clogging butter cream and eggs. We use raw cacao which is chocolate in its natural unprocessed state.

Heavenly Raw Chocolate Mousse

12 dates, soaked for 2 hours and pitted or 1 cup maple syrup
2 ripe avocados, pitted
1/3 cup raw cacao powder
1 teaspoon vanilla flavor
Pinch of sea salt
5 strawberries, sliced

Directions:
First blend dates in a food processor until they become a paste adding a touch of the soaking water if necessary. Scoop out avocado meat with a spoon and add with the rest of the ingredients to the food processor except the berries. Blend until smooth. Be sure to scrap the edges of the bowl a few times to incorporate everything. Taste and add maple syrup if you want it sweeter.

Serve in a martini glass with sliced strawberries on top.

P.S. You can add protein powder to take this up a notch!

    this was so good and my 18 month old loved it! I did add a frozen banana though, because i wanted it a bit sweeter and didn’t have maple syrup.

    Is this just for one serving?  Wish your recipes had nutritional stats.

    • Christy Morgan 17 / 01 / 2012 Reply

      This makes 2 servings, if you wanted to share. I don’t do nutritional stats and I never will. When you eat the Blissful Bites way you do not need to count calories. I’m not a fan of counting calories and I hope people will move away from that and just eat a whole foods plant-based diet. Avocado is a good whole food fat and this is a dessert, so it’s a treat.

    No decent strawberries this time of year.

    Would some thawed dark sweet cherries do?  Mmm… chocolate-covered cherries…  🙂

      This is definitely a summer time dish with the strawberries. Cherries would be delish! Go for it!

    Will regular unsweetened cocoa powder do? I have it sitting in my pantry and definitely want to make this as I love avocados, AND chocolate,of course!

    • christy 26 / 07 / 2017 Reply

      I think that would work fine! You might actually need less sweetener since raw cacao is much more bitter. Give it a try!
