- Do you have children or guests with a sweet tooth?
- Do you wish to ween them over to a healthier diet and lifestyle?
- Do you want a fast and nutritious dessert to serve yourself and your family?
Well this dessert is for you!
This is so healthy you could have dessert for breakfast.
- ½ cup plus 2 Tbsp raw, organic cacao powder (you can use cacao paste if you have it) or to taste. They now have cacao paste at Whole Foods as well as on-line (it comes as a brick, it’s really not a paste at room temperature- it must be melted at low temperature) Cacao powder works just fine but cacao paste is an added bonus if you can obtain it.
- 2 young coconuts (the white ones), water and meat (Most health food stores will open them for you) This is optional, you can make this recipe without these, but they add a yummy Wow factor.
- ½ cup coconut oil and or an additional ¼ cup cacao butter-or a mixture of both
- 1/3 cup or coconut nectar (syrup), Monk fruit to taste, or raw honey, or yucon or Jerusalem artichoke syrup (to taste), or coconut sugar, or a combination of some of them. If you are doing strict gut repair you can substitute with Stevia drops to taste
- Pinch or two of Saigon Cinnamon to taste
- 1-2 tsp raw vanilla powder (optional, if unavailable then just stick with vanilla liquid)
- 1 tsp vanilla liquid
- 4 large avocados (can add more if they are small) May need to add a little more cacao powder.
- Dash of cayenne (optional)
- Macuna powder 1 teaspoon-Great for Dopamine enhancement (happy neurotransmitter in your brain)
- Toasted Maca powder- 1 teaspoon (optional)
- 1 teaspoon wheat grass powder
- ½ cup soaked goji berries (optional)
- Hint of rose water (optional)
- Hint of peppermint (essential oil), hint of Orange essential oil (optional), hint of lavender (optional) this means 1-2 drops, no more or you will be very surprised when you eat it.
- Vanilla flavored Stevia drops (I like Sweet Leaf brand)
- Mayan flare: 1-2 drops orange essential oil, cinnamon, dash of nutmeg, clove, ginger, and cayenne pepper.
- Melt coconut oil and optional cacao butter and add raw cacao powder. (If you have cacao paste then, melt cacao paste on very low heat. I prefer using a double boiler. While it’s melting, melt coconut oil or cacao butter with the cacao in the double boiler.)
- Drain coconuts and save liquid, then scoop out meat.
- Peel and seed avocados.
- Put avocados in food processor and blend, then add young coconut meat and coconut water and blend more, then add your sweetener of choice (coconut syrup, or monk fruit, or honey or stevia drops) and blend.
- Next add cacao and coconut oil/cacao butter and blend even more until very rich and creamy. Add more sweetener, essential oils, spices or raw cacao to taste.
- Dish into small serving bowls and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Soak 1 ½ cups cashews for 2 hours minimum. Add to food processor. Add 1 tsp raw vanilla powder or liquid, few drops of stevia, or monk fruit, or 1 tsp honey, or coconut nectar to taste. 1/8 tsp sea salt. 1-2 drops orange essential oil. 2 Tbsp alternative milk like coconut, almond, or cashew. May add more alternative milk for desired consistency. It should be thick and not runny. Blend well in food processor and then top the mousse with a heaping dollop.
