MEATLESS MONDAY : VEGAN CHOCOLATE MOUSSE

Different kind of raw vegan mousses have been my easy go-to-desserts for a while now simply because they require minimal effort and time. I normally use just cashews for the base, but this time I added avocado as well, since I had few that were about to be over-ripe (=bad). And I really loved it!

Raw Chocolate Mousse

1 avocado
Handful of raw, unsalted cashews
2 tbsp melted coconut oil 
3 tbsp raw cacao powder 
1 tbsp maca powder 
1 tbsp your choice of sweetener (date paste, brown rice syrup, agave, stevia, honey, sugar)
Pinch of salt
Pinch of vanilla powder 

Raw cacao nibs to sprinkle on top

Soak cashews 4 hrs-overnight in water. If you don't have time, don't soak. I often don't and it comes out just as good. Blend in a high-speed blender with little bit of water to create smooth paste. Add avocado and the other ingredients. Add more water (or plant-based milk) to create consistency of your liking. Pour or scoop in to serving bowls. Sprinkle with cacao nibs.  
Serve. Enjoy. Love. Guilt-free.
