Healthy Chocolate Mousse


This chocolate mousse is raw, vegan, and tastes fantastic. Use as a dip with fresh fruit or as a frosting.  Feel free to reduct the amount of dates or maple syrup if it’s too sweet.  Dates are fairly high in minerals, including potassium, manganese, and magnesium.

INGREDIENTS

1/4 c. dates (pureed with 1-2 TBS of water)  OR  maple syrup

1 avocado

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 c. cocoa or carob powder

METHOD

In  food processor, puree dates with water until smooth then slowly add avocado, vanilla, & cocoa/carob, one item at a time.  Refrigerate to keep it fresh.
