Can you imagine, creamy, luxurious, decadent, goodness in your mouth? Like, legit smooth, feel good vibes all up in your mouth? Do I have you drooling yet? Or are you wondering where the heck I’m going with this…? Haha.

I honestly couldn’t believe my ears when avocado and cacao and mousse came to me all in one sentence. How is it possible that savory avocado can be also a sweet treat?? Well it can, it is, and it will be. Right here. Right now. I reveal…. Creamy Chocolate Mousse. Ta daaaa! Oh and it’s super yummy, cuz Duh.

So, anyways, I am always trying to create recipes of things I use to eat before, when I was still taking in dairy, meat, and gluten. I have found this love of dark chocolate and anything related to it. I also love a good creamy ANYTHING, especially pudding or mousse, since both of those I can’t normally have!!

This avocado mousse is seriously decadently amazing. Test it out and let me know what you think. Your taste buds will definitely thank you and I will Give you an accolade for winning in the health department!! PLUS, you are intaking healthy fats, fiber, magnesium, potassium, AND antioxidants to give your body and cells life and the tools to combat illness and toxins coming you way!!

Creamy avocado mousse
Ingredients:

• 3 Ripe avocados
• 10 soaked dates
• 3/4 Cup Almond or Coconut milk
• 3/4 Cup cacao Powder
• 1/2 teaspoon Stevia
• 1/4 teaspoon Salt
• A pinch of cinnamon
• Option: can add 2 Tablespoons

Process:
– Allow dates to soak for at least 30 minutes.

– put dates and milk in blender and blend until broken down to a liquid paste-like consistency. Then add the cacao powder, salt, and cinnamon.

– Once everything is blended together, add the avocado and blend until creamy, about 1 minute.

– Taste and see if it needs a little Stevia for sweetness, add it now. Also, if it could use a little salt add a pinch more.

– This mousse tastes best after sitting in the fridge for 2-3 hours. By sitting and chilling, it will gain more of a “mousse” consistency and the flavors will developed a little more.

Cacao Superfood Smoothie

Cacao Superfood Smoothie

 

As a little girl, I loved when my mom would make anything with chocolate in it. I loved chocolate sauce on my ice cream, peanut butter cups, chocolate chip cookies, you name it, I wanted to be eating and enjoying it. As I grew older, I realized chocolate had dairy and refined sugar in it. I still purchase Dark Chocolate and certified dairy free now, but I try to keep it on occasion. This smoothie helps me to still be able to enjoy chocolate and I know its good for me.

I love Chocolate so much!! Don’t you? If you would like to slurp something super nutrient dense and also yummy tasting this smoothie is fantastic. At the end of the day, not only do I want to have a good meal that tastes good, but I also want to make sure it is packed with optimal nutrients. Cacao has magnesium, antioxidants, and healthy fat. It is great for a little kick in energy and satisfies that chocolate bar craving. I also added maca root and beet powder for added energy. I am so thankful to be be able to have these ingredients at hand to put into a smoothie in order to fuel myself. Feel free to add other ingredients that sound good to you.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon Flaxseed
  • 1 Banana
  • 2 Dates
  • 1/2 Cup Spinach
  • 1 Tablespoon Beet Powder (I like MRM brand)
  • 1 teaspoon Maca Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1-2 Cups Non Dairy Milk (Trader Joes has a great unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk)
  • Go Raw Cacao Granola For topping 🙂
Process:
If you have a powerful blender like the Vitamin or Kitchen aid, or blend tech, etc. I like to throw in and grind the seeds dry first so that they become a powder.
Then put all other ingredients into the blender and blend. You can add liquid to desired consistency and ice if you would like it colder.
I LOVE eating smoothie bowls. So I usually use a little less liquid so I can create a bowl thats thick enough to hold sliced bananas, unsweetened shredded coconut, cacao nibs, goji berries, and hemp seeds! The possibilities are endless, Enjoy loves.
