DECADENT RAW CHOCOLATE MOUSSE, THATS GOOD FOR YOU TO EAT BUT TASTES LIKE ITS BAD FOR YOU!

By • July 21, 2011 • 0 Comments



Author Notes: AFTER MAKING MY FIRST VERY SUCCESSFUL BATCH OF RAW AND DELICIOUS BLACK BEAN DIP, I STARTED TO PONDER SWEET VARIATIONS. I KNEW THAT I LIKED THE VELVETY SMOOTHNESS OF THE DIP AND WHEN I MADE IT A SECOND TIME I USED MORE AVOCADO WHICH CREATED A LIGHTER TEXTURE AKIN TO A SILKY MOUSSE. SO I FIGURED IF THIS WAS GOING TO BE A HEALTHIER DESSERT I MIGHT AS WELL MAKE IT BOTH AS FLAVORFUL AND HEALTHY AS POSSIBLE. HOPE YOU LIKE IT!DUZE @BakingBackwards
