Recipe! Raw Chocolate Mousse w/ Maca

July 15, 2013

Raw Chocolate Mousse I am well aware that when I mention to people that I eat mostly raw foods, most of them imagine me in my kitchen sobbing while eating raw apples and gnawing on celery silently wishing I had a cheeseburger. And although I won’t lie I love to get down with simple raw veg and fruits, it is also true that with a little effort you can create raw vegan gourmet deliciousness that is guilt-free and puts the original recipes to shame. Last week made this raw chocolate mousse in literally five minutes, and I’m sure any chocolate pudding lover would agree that it tasted ten times better than any version that included dairy. The other great part about it is that if you are watching your figure you don’t have to worry about feeling like your tush is going to expand when you are done eating this. For this recipe as long as you have a high speed blender you are good to go, no food processor necessary. I used raw cacao with maca already added in the powder, but  you can also add maca into your mousse seperately for an extra nutritional and libido boost. If you are a chocolate lover, you’ll enjoy this quick and easy dessert and get your cacao fix full on. -XoXo Raw Girl 

Raw Chocoloate Mousse w/ Maca

Prep Time: 5 minutes, 1-2 Servings


1 Avocado (pitted & peeled)

½ tsp sea salt
2 tsp vanilla extract 

½ cup water (or less if you prefer thick)

In a high-speed blender, combine all ingredients until smooth. Pour into serving dishes, garnish with berries, and chill in the refrigerator for 15 -20 minutes or eat immediately if you just can’t wait! Enjoy!
