Raw & Fermented Treats

Vegan Avocado Chocolate Mousse {and Cake Frosting}

Avocado Chocolate Mousse

To improve your health and manage food sensitivities, you might be changing your diet, and cutting out cane sugar, wheat and dairy. This can mean missing out on dessert.

So, to meet both your dietary needs and your yen for something sweet and chocolatey, try this to-die-for avocado-based chocolate mousse recipe. It’s so incredibly rich and delicious, you might even like it better than the dairy-based version!

While this recipe will work with regular cocoa powder (or carob powder), I prefer to use raw cacao powder instead.

Raw cacao powder is a true superfood. Just 2 Tablespoons contain 170 mg of Magnesium (or 42% Daily Value ), 4 mg of Iron (or 22% DV) and 20 times more antioxidants than red wine or green tea.

So this raw, vegan (or beegan, if you choose!), Paleo- and GAPS-friendly chocolate mousse is not only yummy, but also nutritious and allergen free. It also makes a rich, decadent, dairy-free cake frosting, too!
