Laura’s Raw Vegan Chocolate Mousse, Raspberry Mousse and Cream Sauce Recipes!

Okay, by special request of Scott Badenoch of Creative Citizen, who will be my guest on Visionary Culture Radio this Monday night January 5, here is a RAWSOME raw vegan chocolate mousse recipe! I bet Paul Mamakos of Everything Raw is going to love these recipes too. Can we package this Paul???

Scott was astounded that the recipe could be made with, yes… avocados! They are creamy and smooth, healthy fats… and they help us avoid any dairy products of course! The avo-flavor melts away with the addition of secret ingredients… here goes!

4 ripe avocados
1 cup raw vegan cacao powder
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. gluten-free vanilla and or 1 vanilla bean
6-8 large pitted (preferably medjool) dates (the dates give a carmelly, rich flavor!)
2 tbs. raw honey

Okay, simply place all ingredients in a food processor and process until completely smooth! Dish it up with date and mint sprig on the top, or perhaps a sprinkling of fresh raspberries and grated ginger!

Variation :: Raspberry Mousse

You can do this one independently, or mix the two…for a chocolate-raspberry delight!

4 ripe avocados
10 ounces raspberries (frozen or fresh. if frozen, thaw first. Place bag in a bowl to thaw to avoid raspberry leakage.)
1 tsp. gluten-free vanilla and or 1 vanilla bean
6-8 large pitted (preferably medjool) dates (the dates give a carmelly, rich flavor!)
1 tbs. raw honey

If you want a cream sauce with either of those ::

2 c. raw macadamia nuts
1/2 c. raw honey
1/8 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. fresh grated ginger
2 cups filtered or spring water (depending on how thick you want it)

Process all ingredients in the VitaMix or other blender. Keep it fairly thick. If you want it thinner, add more water. Thicker, start with a little less water.

Pour this sauce over either or both of the Mousses above. If you want to go really crazy, you can put these three alternately in a parfait dish, and place various fruits like raspberries, blueberries, mangos, in between the layers. Top with fresh mint leaves, a couple small pieces of date, and a sprinkling of fresh ginger. Maybe even a dash of lemon juice, and a whole lot of love!!

The raw cacao powder, raw honey, sea salt, mac nuts and vanilla can all be purchased easily at Natural Zing. Jeff and Helen have great prices, and they kindly support my community service work of this blog and the radio shows by donating a portion of sales proceeds when people find out about them through me! So please check out Natural Zing and tell them Laura Fox sent you!

Much love,
