Raw Chocolate Orange Mousse ‘Mousse Chocorange’

For Vegan Month of Food 2014 I am adapting recipes from the first book I ever learnt to bake from: Chocolat: Fondre de Plaisir by Camille and Nathalie Le Foll. Join me as I veganise 20 recipes from this book – it’s going to be a month of total chocolate decadence!
Raw chocorange mousse TITLE
I am the last person who would eat a purely raw diet, but I have to hand it to the raw foodists: their desserts are the bomb. All those natural fats (avocados! nuts! coconut oil!) make for the best desserts. Just think of raw cheesecake, raw ice cream, raw chocolate mousse, raw fudge, raw chocolate… the list is endless. You may well already be familiar with blogs such as This Rawsome Vegan Life and Fragrant Vanilla Cake which boast the most impressive looking raw desserts I’ve ever seen.

Mostly, I like raw desserts because they don’t cause havoc with my skin and digestive system. I am not the type of person to deny myself a slice (or five) of cake but sugar is not my friend. Nah-uh. Vegan Month of Food has been fun so far but… I’ve had to wear foundation every single day this month just to cover up my pimples. October will be a month of sugar-cleansing for me, it seems!

Raw Chocolate & Orange Mousse

2 avocados
2 tbsp cacao powder
8 dates, pitted
juice of 2 oranges + zest for topping

Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend till smooth and creamy. Decant into 2 glasses or small pots and enjoy straight away, or refrigerate for a few hours until needed.
