Here’s the recipe I outline in the clip from my book Rocket Fuel On A Budget
- 6 pitted fresh dates (soaked and pitted)
- 1⁄4 cup of pure maple syrup or raw honey
- 1⁄2 tsp. of vanilla extract
- 2 avocados (mashed)
- 1⁄4 cup of raw organic cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp. of liquid from the soaked dates
- 4 tsp. of toasted coconut flakes to garnish.
My tips: This is a rich, smooth sweet treat! You only need about 2 tbsp. per serve.
If you are sensitive to the caffeine in cocoa, then try substituting with carob powder that is caffeine free.
Blend dates, maple syrup and vanilla in food processor until smooth.
Add avocado and cocoa powder; process until creamy. Add the date liquid and process briefly.
Divide the mousse between 4 ramekins or tall dessert glasses. Store in a sealed container.
Mousse will keep for 3 days in a fridge, or 2 weeks in a freezer.
