Try This Decadent Chocolate Mousse—Without Any Guilt

Yes, it's raw and dairy-free, but that doesn't mean this smooth, creamy mousse isn't insanely delicious. The sweetness comes courtesy of plump Medjool dates!

Raw Chocolate Mousse Recipe

Yield: 4 to 6 servings
Active Time:


2 cups pitted Medjool dates
2 cups almond milk 
1 tablespoon chia seeds 
8 tablespoons cacao powder 
1/4 cup cashew butter 
1/2 teaspoon Maldon sea salt 
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract 

Raw chocolate mousse


Soak the dates and almond milk together in a bowl for 3 hours. Transfer to a high-speed blender and blend on high until creamy. Add in the chia seeds, cocoa powder, cashew butter, salt, and vanilla and blend until well incorporated. Pour into ramekins and top with nuts and berries, or other fruit as desired.
