Yield6 small cakes
1/2 cup buckwheaties (sprouted, dehydrated buckwheat)
2 medjool dates
5 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice
Â½ ripe avocado
7 tbsp carob
1 tsp orange zest (about 1 orange)
Make the bases:
â€¢ Process half of the buckwheaties into a fine powder in the mini processor.
â€¢ Place the processed buckwheaties, along with the whole buckwheaties into a small bowl. Sieve 4 tbsp of the carob into the bowl.
â€¢ Place a medjool date and 4 tbsp of the orange juice into the mini processor and process until you have a syrup.
â€¢ Pour the syrup into the bowl with the buckwheaties and carob and mix really well until you have a thick dough that sticks together when you press it.
â€¢ Form the mixture into 6 bases using a 2 inch biscuit cutter as a mould
Make the topping:
â€¢ Place the other medjool date and 1 tbsp orange juice into the mini processor and process until you have a syrup.
â€¢ Scoop out the avocado and put into a bowl, along with the date syrup, 3 tbsp sieved carob and Â¾ tsp orange zest.
â€¢ Mash the avocado into the other ingredients, combining well until you have a smooth chocolately mousse.
â€¢ Spoon the mousse onto the buckwheat bases and top with the remaining orange zest.
If you donâ€™t have buckwheaties, you could try making the base with oats, or ground almonds/sunflower seeds.
Pathlesstrodden's ThoughtsBy pathlesstrodden
I created this dessert specially for a recent raw food demonstration and lunch. My guinea pigs loved it! They were even more amazed to try a dessert made from avocado. This healthy fruit, rich in natural oils gives a perfect way to make an easy raw-vegan mousse. I combined it with a crunchy buckwheat base to provide a rich, smooth couple-of-bite-size desserts. Enjoy!
