Raw Chocolate Lemon Mousse

Raw Chocolate Lemon Mousse

Welcome to my dangerously delicious recipe for raw chocolate mousse.

It’s silky, smooth, super healthy and highly addictive! (You have been warned ;) )

In fact, ever since I started making it for my events it I’ve been receiving messages like these almost daily:

 


 

And if you think it’s only women going crazy for chocolate… ;)

So for Kevin and everyone else…

Ready for some chocolate love?… Ok here it goes…

Raw Chocolate Lemon Mousse…

Les ingrédients…

  • Raw cacao powder
  • Raw honey
  • Avocado (ripe)
  • Coconut oil (melted)
  • Organic bourbon vanilla powder
  • Cinnamon
  • Maca root powder
  • A hint of sea salt, or better yet: Himalayan rock salt

 

And the secret weapon in this bazooka of chocoliciousness:

 

 

Tip: I buy most of my chocolate ingredients either on iHerb.com or at Ekoplaza here in the Netherlands. :)

Chocolate mousse in blender

Instructions:

Put all ingredients in a high speed blender and mix into velvety smoothness… Done!

 

 

 

 

 

What are the measurements, you ask?

I reply to you with the rest of my conversation with Kevin:

Chocolate amounts 1

Chocolate amounts 2

I’ve never been a fan of measurements or fixed amounts, but prefer to try & taste my way to pleasurable perfection…

A couple of hints & tips though:

– I buy most of my chocolate ingredients either on iHerb.com or at Ekoplaza here in the Netherlands. :)

– Be generous with the cacao powder (nothing worse than chocolate mousse that doesn’t taste like chocolate!)

– Go easy on the maca. (Max 1-3 teaspoons per person). It’s a powerful aphrodisiac and you will feel the effect even with just a little. The taste is also quite something, so make sure the maca flavor doesn’t overrule the chocolate-lemon magic.

– Real vanilla powder should be dark brown in color. (When you buy something called vanillin or “natural vanilla flavor” it’s most likely made either synthetically or “naturally derived” from cow dung – yuck!)
Go for the real deal, mi amore.

– Coconut oil becomes liquid at 24/25 degrees celsius. So unless your apartment/beach house/raw food kitchen is that warm: put it in a bowl on the heater, or melt au bain-marie: coconut oil in a small bowl, inside a bigger bowl with warm water. Make sure it’s below 47 degrees to keep it raw.

– If you want it to be less soft, tuck it away in the fridge for some time and the coconut oil will harden and make the entire mousse a bit more firm.

If you don’t have lemon oil, lemon zest and rind works fine too. But there’s something mmmmmagical about the lemon oil which makes the mousse super lemony without adding any sourness.
Most essential oils you shouldn’t eat. The Young Living Lemon Essential Oil is the best of the best and yes – edible.

– Enjoy with raspberries, pineapple or pecan nuts. Bonus points for grating some lemon rind on top for professional decoration look.  ;)

– Bonus bonus points if you get together with friends or a lover and feed each other…

[toggle title=”Click on the + to see what’s SO good about it:”]The botanical name for the cacao tree is theobroma cacao – which means “food of the gods” in Greek. Cacao powder improves heart health, lowers blood pressure and reduces LDL (“bad”) cholesterol.

Raw cacao is super high in antioxidants, magnesium and iron and also contains compounds that act as stimulants believed to boost serotonin and endorphin levels in the brain that gives you a pleasurable sensation similar to the high people get after exercise.

Raw cacao also contains tryptophan and phenylethylamine, which are responsible for causing feelings of happiness and sexual arousal.

Avocado and coconut oil add a lovely creaminess and are full of good anti-inflammatory mono-unsaturated fats that…

… Reduce the risk of heart disease, some cancers, diabetes and high cholesterol

… Prevent and assist with both rheumatoid and osteo-arthritis

… Help to burn fat and reduce weight

… Help prevent vaginal dryness

… Are high in vitamins A, C, E, K and B6, fiber, magnesium, potassium, riboflavin, niacin, folate and pantothenic acid

Raw honey has anti-inflammatory properties and is good for your skin.

Cinnamon lowers blood sugar levels and prevents blood sugar spikes. = Makes you more harmonious. :)

Lemon oil is high on the ORAC scale with lots of lovely antioxidants + acts as a mood enhancer and gives a feeling of ahhh… summer time…

So there you have it! Lots of reasons to have lots of raw chocolate mousse. ;) So if you needed an extra excuse besides the taste… Permission granted![/toggle]

    Tried it tonight. Added too much cacao I think, my other avocado’s weren’t ripe yet so I solved it with a banana. Now it tastes great. So next time more avocado’s and maybe more fluid? Coconut oil/ honey?
    Due to my blender not wanting to cooperate I now also have the best chocolate milk I ever tasted. As I couldnt get the chocolate all out and wouldn’t want to waste it, I solved that with some goatmilk from my daughter.

      Hey Marielle,

      Extra coconut oil, a dash of water or raw almond butter will do the trick. (Personally I’m not a fan of the banana flavor, but if you’re fine with it – go for it!)

      And yes, I didn’t mention it in the post, but I’m way too lazy to try to get it all out and I ALWAYS add water or almond milk + some extra flavors to make delicious frothy chocolate milk. Perfect solution!

      Glad you enjoyed it, and great that you got the lemon oil.
      Love and xx-es,
      Ronja
