Avocado Chocolate Mousse
(with thanks to The Food Matters Recipe Book)

Cacao promotes positive outlook, facilitates rejuvenation and simply helps us feel good.  Cacao beans are rich in a number of essential minerals, including magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron, zinc, copper, potassium and manganese.

Ingredients

2 medium sized ripe avocados

1/3 cup raw cacao powder, or more to taste

5 fresh dates, pitted and roughly chopped

¼ cup coconut milk, nut milk or filtered water

1 tsp natural vanilla extract

A pinch of unrefined sea salt

Optional:  dried coconut, grated dark chocolate or berries to serve

Preparation

Soak the dates in the milk or water for 10 – 30 minutes to soften.  In a blender, add the avocado flesh, dates and milk, vanilla, salt, cacao powder.  Blend until smooth.  You may need to add a little more liquid to facilitate blending, and scrape down the sides of the jug a few times.

Adjust ingredients to taste, adding more cacao powder if it needs it.  Serve and garnish with your choice of toppings.
