Decadent Carob Mousse

| 4 Comments

This mousse is adapted from Heather’s chocolate pudding. It is quite rich. A little goes a long way and it sure is a crowd pleaser. Thanks to the avocados, it has a very “fluffy” texture! No one will guess that there are avocados in it! I topped it with blueberries, but any berry would be delicious!

Carob Mousse:

2 large avocados

1/2 c pitted, chopped dates

1/3 c nut milk (I used homemade cashew milk)

1/4-1/2 c water

1 t vanilla

1/2 t cinnamon

3 T carob powder

First blend the dates with the nut milk and 1/4 c of water until smooth. Next add the rest of the ingredients and blend. Add only enough water to blend. It should be very thick. Chill in the fridge until ready to serve!

I recently went to Whole Foods and picked up a “raw porridge” in their bulk bins. It was made out of sprouted buckwheat and sunflower seeds and had dried apples and raisins. I tried it soaked in water and was not overly impressed. Not wanting to waste it, I decided to make a cake with it! I mixed the dry cereal with a mashed banana, baking powder, baking soda and almond milk and baked it in a cake pan. The cereal was already pretty sweet, so I did not need to add a sweetener. I topped it with cooked sliced apples, a orange, lucuma caramel sauce and maple roasted walnuts! Let’s just say it went down well! We ate it all in a day!

Cereal never looked and tasted so good!
