So today in Middle Tennessee its a snow day. This doesnt mean much for me as far as the kids go because we homeschool. It does however having me wishing I was living in California. I love the beauty of snow but do not like to have my freedom taken away, if that makes sense.
But, what can you do so I started making yummy food. I juiced turmeric and ginger for shots and made my raw kale salad, and now I am sharing with you the vegan chocolate mousse that I like that is also sugar free!
I am not a huge sweets person, I like a good piece of chocolate now and then or a bite here or there, but I do not crave sugar. I will add stevia to my tea and thats about it. This dessert is decadent, fulfilling, nutritious and can also have you back away from the chocolate cake. And when the need does arrive it will fill the dessert craving for me :)
You will need:
Vitamix or food processor
1 organic ripe avocado
1-2 tsp coconut oil
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
1.5 packets of stevia, or xylitol
1 tsp organic vanilla extract
touch of sea salt
approx 1/4 cup of nut milk
optional toppings: cacao nibs, goji berries, hemp seeds, vegan chocolate chips
Place all ingredients in the mixer of choice and blend. You may have to scrape the sides a couple times or add more nut milk if you would like it smoother. Place in fridge until cold throughout, then eat! If you are not worried about sugar you can use honey or pure maple syrup instead of stevia for a nice flavor change.
Now since my pictures are so fancy ( sarcasm) I hope it shows you how yummy this is. Really think chocolate gelato with a hint of avocado.
