Want to give your love a sweet-but-healthy chocolate treat on Valentine’s Day...or any day, for that matter? This mousse is 100% Paleo, gluten-free and vegan (and provides minerals such as copper, iron and manganese). How much healthier can you get?
3 tbsp coconut oil
1 oz 100% pure dark chocolate
3 tbsp cacao powder
1 tsp instant coffee
6 pitted medjool dates
2 large ripe avocados, pitted
1/4 cup coconut milk
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
3. In a blender or food processor, process the remaining ingredients until almost smooth. Add in the chocolate mixture and continue to blend until completely smooth.
4. Scoop or pipe into glass bowls. Place in the refrigerator to firm up for four hours or eat it soft and warm straight out of the blender.
Yields 4 half-cup servings
