Raw Chocolate Mousse
Rich, Thick, Delectable
and oh, so...
This is crazy easy and fabulous enough, delicious enough, incredible enough to serve to dinner guests!!! I tried this recipe from another site, but altered it slightly. Clean up is easy - just rinse the blender! This makes about 4 servings - cut recipe in half for two servings.
Place in a blender:
Avocados - 2 ripe, or nearly ripe
Warm Water - 2 cups, one per avocado (warm, not hot!)
Lime - squeeze]
Cocoa - 1/4 cup (then add depending on your taste buds)
Sugar - start w/ 1/8 cup, then add according to your taste
Agave - Squeeze in to taste (add more of this and less Sugar for a richer, yet healthier option)
Vanilla - 1 tsp. (add according to taste - coconut extract also works, but use less)
Whir it in the blender until smooth and creamy! Indulge! For you non-Vegan's, a dollop of whip cream. DO NOT WORRY - this does NOT NOT NOT taste like avocado! It tastes rich and chocolaty, with an undertone of banana (go figure!).
Hope you try it - it's totally fabulous!!!
