Top with raw cacao nibs for a choc-chip crunch! 

Sugar-Free Vegan Chocolate Mousse

I love experimenting with recipes, particularly ones that involve raw cacao. 

This mousse is the real deal - it is 100% raw, all natural and sugar free - yet it is so decadent you could swear you were eating the sugar-laden variety. It's also simple and quick to make, and lasts a while in the fridge. 

Ingredients

1/2 an avocado

1/4 cup of coconut water

1 cup of coconut flesh (I bought a whole coconut then scraped out the insides but you can sometimes find fresh coconut chunks chopped up at your supermarket)

3 - 4 tablespoons of raw cacao (depending on how chocolate-y you like your mousse)

1 tablespoon of tahini

1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon

Dribble of vanilla extract

Pinch of Himalayan sea salt

1 1/2 tablespoons of rice malt syrup (you can also use date paste as a sweetener)

Method

Blend all ingredients in your blender. Taste and adjust flavours as necessary - you may want to add more cacao, or more rice malt syrup if you like it a little sweeter. 

Refrigerate for around an hour before serving. Top with raw cacao nibs for a choc-chip crunch!
