Recipe Directions

Cover the dates in warm water and soak for 2 hours ( I leave mine soaking over night). If you don’t want to wait this long then you can use raw agave nectar. However, leaving the dates to soak for a few hours makes the water very syrupy and scrumptious!

When the dates have soaked, add them to a blender and blend. This makes them into a thick syrupy date sauce. They may not mix, so slowly add a little bit of water to get everything spinning. Once everything is spinning stop adding water.

Chop the avocado and add to a food processor.

Add the date syrup to the food processor.

Add a big tablespoon of raw chocolate powder (or 100% cocoa powder).

Food process it all.

Scrape down the sides of the food processor bowl to ensure everything gets mixed.

Eat it all up!

DeborahBee's Thoughts

Really easy, super quick and yummy chocolate mousse! Flavours, such as orange or lemon, can be added.

I get raw chocolate powder from www.detoxyourworld.com http://www.detoxyourworld.com/acatalog/chocolate_powder_organic.html

If you can’t get hold of raw chocolate powder you could substitute with 100% cocoa powder (this isn’t raw).

This mousse satisfies the sweet craving I sometimes get and at the same time makes me feel full which means I don’t crave to eat anything else. Perfect for when I feel I might fall off the wagon!

Even my junk foodist boyfriend likes this!

I like to make it in advance and take it to work the next day. Everyone asks “What’s that? I thought you ate only raw food?” He he he he!

So just use less dates. Sweetness factor can be adjusted according to taste.

Okay, does anyone know where i can get this powder in the US??? Do you think raw Carob powder would substitute nicely? I like the Carob because it's caffeine free...
