The Easiest Raw Chocolate Mousse You’ll Ever Make

Chocolate Mousse Tarts

Love it or loathe it, Valentine’s Day is the perfect day for couples to indulge and for singles to flirt. If you are single, Valentine’s Day can make you see the world through tacky red-tinted glasses in which every other living soul is a love sick couple struggling to squeeze a bouquet of overpriced roses into a cab. Well, chocolate doesn’t care about your relationship status! Treat yourself by making my amazing two-step raw chocolate mousse. This is the easiest, most flexible recipe you will ever make and it can be made in less than 10 minutes. Use it as a filling or dip for fruit, spread it on cake as an icing, make mini tarts or a big decadent pie, or better yet, enjoy it as breakfast in bed.

Yield 2 Cups

Ingredients

3 ripe avocados
3 Tbsp raw Ontario honey
1 Tbsp raw organic coconut oil
2 to 3 drops peppermint extract (I use Living Libations because their essential oils are edible! Use your imagination and flavour to your liking.)
Zest and juice of 1 lime
5 Tbsp raw organic cacao powder (not to be confused with cocoa powder and should not be substituted)

Garnish: raw cacao nibs roasted and chopped nuts and the list goes on!

Directions

  1. Scoop the flesh of the avocadoes into the bowl of a food processor.  Add the other ingredients and blend. Transfer to mixture to a bowl. Refrigerate.
  2. Serve to someone you love.
