chocolate mousse raw food recipe

This raw food beginner recipe looks like more than what it is. You could say it’s like the girl who has on Gucci from head to toe, but doesn’t have any money in the bank.

I made this simple raw food recipe out of necessity. I thought I’d found the sale of a century when I saw that Fresh Direct (an online grocer) had pears/avocados on sale for 99 cents. However, I was wrong. My heart dropped when I opened my box and felt these extremely soft avocados. I instantly knew why they were only 99 cents each.

Being a Caribbean woman who was raised by Caribbean parents, I instantly heard the voice of my mother saying, “You betta not waste them pears ya.” So although I had no plans of making chocolate mousse, I turned a bad situation into a delicious one.

This recipe is so delectable. If you have kids or friends that aren’t raw, you can make this for them. When they’re finished eating, tell them that their chocolate mousse was made with stale pears/avocados. I know that it will be a conversation starter for sure! Don’t take my last piece of advice if you plan to serve this to “important” guests, though.

So dig in, and don’t forget to share and comment on this raw food beginner recipe!

Lovely click of the vegan avocado chocolate mousse. I tried this once but I did not like it. However I am loving your version will have to try it again.

Thank you Wizzy ! This recipe only works if you use the right amount of sweetener and chocolate powder.

This looks really delicious and interesting, though I must confess, I’m not an avocado lover nor a vegetarian.
I love how you infused your “Caribbean-ness” into your post (I suspect Bajan based on you Mum’s response)

Would love to connect some more and happy to see you @ Caribbean Recipes on FB.

This looks delicious! I’m a huge fan of avocado chocolate mousse, and the banana cream sounds like a perfect match for it.
