Chocolate Mousse 5/7 people (when served in 15 cl glasses) All organic ingredients if possible
- 1 cup date paste: contains tannins which have anti-inflammatory properties
Good source of vitamin A (anti oxidant) as well as other anti oxidants
An excellent source of iron (iron is the nucleus of our blood cells and bonds to oxygen)
Contains many other minerals such a potassium, calcium, magnesium and copper
Dates are a lot better than refined sugar!
100 ml of almond milk: Out of all vegan milks almond has the highest calcium content.
Dairy milk is acidifying for the body once digested. Although it contains calcium your body will take calcium from your bones to neutralise the acid from the milk. Almond milk is alkalising.
- 2 ripe avocados: High in oleic acid, a good fat (like olive oil).
Very alkalising due to its high potassium content and its low sugar content.
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract, choose a good organic one and, where possible the pods themselves.
- 200 grams of 85% dark chocolate (melted) or 100 g chocolate powder)
- A sprinkle of raw cacao nibs: One of the richest sources of anti oxidants, which deal with free radicals.
Yes chocolate is good for you, but in its natural form, straight from the bean!
For the date paste soak 500g of pitted dates in 200ml almond milk for a few hours then blend until smooth.
For almond milk soak 100g of almonds overnight then blend well in 1 litre of water then sieve . You can keep the fibre as this will add a nice texture.
Put everything in a food processor and blend until smooth
Sprinkle some raw cacao on top and serve chilled
Chocolate mousse doesn't always have to be naughty!!
