looking for a raw recipe


Recommended Posts



You may want to the following recipe. It’s from Living Cuisine: The Art and Spirit of Raw Foods by Renee Loux Underkoffler and Woody Harrelson.

While the cocoa powder and maple syrup are not technically “raw,” you may choose to substitute or use sparingly.


Chocolate Mousse


1/2 cup soft dates (without pits)

3-4 T maple syrup

1 T cold-pressed coconut butter (optional)

1 1/2 T vanilla extract

2 1/2 cups mashed avocado (try using 3)

3/4 C raw carob powder

4-6 T cocoa powder


Soak the dates in 1/2 cup fresh water for 5-10 minutes to soften. Drain the soak water and set aside. In a food processor, blend dates, maple syrup, coconut butter (if used) and vanilla until smooth. Spoon in avocado and blend until smooth. Add a few tablespoons of date soak water if necessary to aid in blending. Spoon in carob and cocoa powder and blend until smooth.



Have fun,
