Recipe Directions

In the bowl of a food processor, blend dates and avocados until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and blend. Add water or almond milk as needed. (approximately 1/3 to 1/2 cup) Use water or almond milk to reach desired consistency. Thicker consistency could be use as icing on a raw cake. Lighter consistency is almost like eating chocolate pudding. Can be refrigerated for up to 3 – 4 days.
Note – We have not wanted this in awhile. But we whipped some up tonight. We omitted the maple syrup and raw agave nectar and used 2/3 cup of Organic Raw Blue Agave instead. The family could not taste a difference. So Good!

Thanks for the positive feedback!
This has been a great transitional recipe
for our family and friends learning to eat raw.
Thanks, once again, for the kind words of motivation.

I love this recipe...it works fine with just raw agave and a little raw honey.
I think when it comes to raw...don't be too fanatical about it when you first begin. Use your maple syrups and all that jazz, but it is good to know what's 100% raw and what's not. Just don't worry about being militaristic with it, because then it's no fun :-( Either way, there are plenty of raw alternatives for most anything.

I too was/am turned off by using Avacado's in this way - probably because i'm in love with Guacamole on my "Taco Salad".... but, i'm going to do this once i'm done with my master cleanse (6 more days)... with that being said, i just want to comment on maple syrup not being raw. I started my Master Cleanse and felt horrible for the first 2 1/2 days. I finally realized that it was the maple syrup. I immediately stopped using it and substituted Raw Agave for it and now i feel fabulous. I think i was on a sugar high. I've been raw for about 6 months now and barely use sweeteners (agave is the only one and it's sooooo low in glycemic index). So, my body was not liking the maple syrup and the smell of it actually started to repulse me. On my last 3 cleanses, i was fine and never had this problem, but i was eating normal American food... odd, huh? Anyway, i can't wait to try this pudding/frosting. I hate dishes that take too long, so this is perfect :) Thanks!

"Can be refrigerated for up to 3 – 4 days."
I don't think it would last the night at my household.

Hey Deeddlit,
We do not eat honey, but I am sure you could use it as a substitute.
Just apply your measurement slowly to reach desired sweetness or taste.
The recipe really is an easy one to play with to fit your preference.

This looks and sounds amazing! Could I just use raw honey in place of the maple syrup and agave?

Oh Yeah, I have also been meaning to try the chocolate mousse in Vanessa Sherwood's
chocolate tart crust. I think that would really be a great hit.
I just haven't gotten around to it yet. Here is the link for the chocolate tart crust
so check it out....http://gliving.tv/greenchefs/vanessa-sherwood/Chocolate-Orange-Tart/inde...

Bellasera.....I am so happy to hear you and your friends liked it! I loved what you wrote earlier about moderation. I highly agree that when you are making the switch from SAD to RAW...moderation is the key. I think as time passes the less and less
it becomes that way. You start to lose interest in those things that you were taking in with moderation. But every once in awhile when our family does have that sweet craving, this chocolate mousse sure does the trick. I apologize for the richness.
However, I think you will find there is plenty of room to tweaked it to your personal
perfernce. Once again, so happy you found it Yummy!

YUM YUM!! I should not have said anything to my non raw son though about the avocados he just could not get past them being in the pudding. But all my friends raved about it and loved it. VERY VERY RICH though so I'm toning it down with a bit of nut milk tonight. I've got two more recipes to do tonight then I'm done this weekend for my raw preparing frenzy. Thanks to everyone for such great recipes here to try!!!

You are so right about the avocados. This is similar to the recipe I make from Jenifer Cornbleets book and I would never in a million year have thought that avocados could taste so darn good!

Thanks simplyraw, I didn't know they actually were making a raw agave nectar. I see it so often in raw recipes and use it in moderation but know that is not actually a raw product. Now I just need to convince my local whole foods to carry it. LOL I still do use some non raw items like maple syrup, cocoa powder and agave from time to time, I try and make sure they are at least organic but to me moderation is the key and your chocolate pudding looks devine!!! Making it tonight! thank you

Thank you x5live! You are correct...
maple syrup - is not raw
cocoa powder - is not raw. Which you could substitute with carob powder.
vanilla extract - is not raw. Please note you should make sure your extract has no
alcohol.
Agave Nectar - is not raw. It is processed at roughly 140 to 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
You want to look for Raw Pure Organic Agave Nectar - which will say
it is specially produced at tempertures below 115 degrees Fahrenheit.
Like some of the popular raw cookbooks (example - Raw Food, Real World) and the site
for gliving.tv .....
Our family likes to use the maple syrup from time to time as a sweetner.
We also do not mind using cocoa/carob powder or vanilla extract from time to time either. I think it comes down to personal perference. But for those new to raw...x5live is correct. Maple Syrup is not raw.
Thank you x5live for mention this.

Maple syrup is boiled, so it is not raw. :( I used to love using it...

Some people are turn off by the dates or avocados.But then once they try it, they cannot believe it was made with avocados.
Try It! You won't believe it is Raw!
