The Blissful Chef’s Heavenly Raw Vegan Chocolate Mousse
We have friends coming over tonight, and while I’m probably not above whipping out my netbook and blogging right in front of people, I figured doing it now would be the polite thing to do. I have something completely deliciously and (un)sinfully decadent to share with you! Today, Christy posted her recipe for Raw Chocolate Mousse on The Blissful Chef, and I just happened to be in possession of two avocados in dire need of use. I’ve heard amazing things about vegan avocado chocolate frostings and desserts, I’ve just never had a recipe magically appear in my reader when I had the necessary ingredients on hand and a little free time, like today.
Not only is this mousse delicious, it’s so quick and easy to make as well. I simply soaked the dates, put everything in the food processor, blended, added a little maple syrup to personal taste (as Christy suggests), and viola! Chocolate mousse. The flavor is light, creamy, rich, and even my avocado-hating husband couldn’t guess the main ingredient. In the photo, the dessert looks a little green hued, but I promise when served in person it’s a very chocolate color. I highly recommend checking out this dessert recipe and making it for your loved ones who could use a heart-healthy treat!
