Orange Blossom Chocolate Mousse

by Kristen Suzanne in raw chocolate, raw recipes, vegan

Think: Delicious, Floral, Chocolatey, Creamy. One of my creations, this recipe is simple (less than 10 minutes to make!) with only a handful of ingredients. Enjoy!

Orange Blossom Chocolate Mousse
Yield 1 1/4 cup

2 tablespoons water

2 tablespoons orange blossom water*
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons raw agave nectar
1/4 cup raw chocolate powder
2 tablespoons raw carob powder**
3/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 avocado pitted, peeled

Blend all of the ingredients in your blender until creamy. It’s wonderful to eat right away or chilled in the refrigerator or you can freeze it in an ice cube tray for Frozen Orange Blossom Chocolate Bites!

*You can easily find this at most Middle Eastern Markets and some Whole Foods Markets, or purchase it online here: Dayna’s Market (while you’re there, pick up a bottle of rose water, which I use in some of my Easy Raw Food Recipe ebooks). The orange blossom water provides the unique floral and orange essence to this recipe. You can, of course, replace it with plain water, but it will be plain chocolate mousse (delicious still, but certainly not the same).

**The only place I have found “true” raw carob is at NaturalZing.com.
