When I turned on my phone last night after teaching a yoga class I found the following message “Dinner at Rhi’s… meet at 7.45pm… bring dessert”… As it was now 7.15pm and I was just leaving my studio in my yoga gear I thought…hmmm… what to do?!
After intercepting the fiance in a supermarket trying to buy Sara Lee Apple Danish and vanilla bean icecream I hatched a plan… after a quick text to the host to see if she had any raw cacao I was up and running…. raw cacao chocolate mousse coming at us!
This is literally the quickest, easiest and most delicious thing EVER so I highly suggest you try it (maybe even for breakfast)!
Ingredients (exactly what I added last night as it was what I had):
- 2 ripe avocados
- 1/2 banana
- 4 medjool dates
- 1/2 cup of raw cacao (I would have added a bit more but we had limited supplies – all depends on how chocolatey you like it)
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- pinch of Himalayan salt
- dash cinnamon
Pop it all in a blender and whiz til creamy and moussey… then serve. I made ours before dinner (when I arrived – still in yoga gear – as per usual) and then popped it in the fridge while we ate. It was next level… !
Here are some more bits you can add to make it even more decadent:
- A little vanilla
- Maybe some coconut meat for extra creamy-ness (or coconut cream from the can if you do not have the fresh stuff)
- You can try different sweetners like coconut nectar, or maple syrup…. experiment!
- Maybe even some medicine flower essences for extra flavour.
It’s soooo good I actually want to make this for breakfast now… and I might!
