Dates Avocado Mousse
2 ripe avocados, pitted and flesh scooped out
1/3 cup raw cacao powder or more to taste
5 fresh Medjool dates, pitted and roughly chopped
1/4 cup coconut milk, nut milk, or filtered water
1 tsp vanilla
Optional: Dried coconut, grated dark chocolate, or berries to serve.
Soak the dates in the milk or water for 10-30 minutes to soften. In a blender, add the avocado flesh, dates, milk, vanilla and salt, and cacao powder. Blend until smooth.
You may need a little more liquid to facilitate blending, and scrape down the sides a few times.
Adjust ingredients to taste, adding more cacao powder and garnish with a choice of toppings. Stay creative.
