Notes

EXTRA IDEAS
  • Make a gorgeous Raw Raspberry Cacao Tart with this mousse by blending together 1 cup of fresh dates, 1 cup of activated walnuts, pecans or almonds and 1/2 tsp unrefined salt.  Press this mixture into a tart tin to make the base, place in the refrigerator to set for 1 hour, then fill with the mousse and decorate just before serving.
  • Use the mousse as a topping for cakes and cupcakes, or as a filling for the Almond Butter Cookies. Just add 2 tbsp of coconut oil to make the mousse a little firmer.
  • Try strawberries or banana instead of raspberries.
  • Add a couple of teaspoons of energising and revitalising maca powder.
  • Top with a sprinkle chopped nuts, cacao nibs, desiccated coconut or bee pollen instead of raspberries.
  • Try adding the zest of an orange, some fresh mint leaves or a tsp of cinnamon.
  • In place of hazelnut butter use almond or cashew butter.
  • Any leftovers (unlikely!) can be frozen in small ice block moulds to make the most delicious and healthy treat.
** At The Health Emporium you can grind your own hazelnut butter, which being so fresh, tastes amazing.
