oooohhhh myyyyyy goossshhhhh. THIS.MOUSSE. I recently (finally) tried soaking cashews to make my own cashew milk, and after I did, I’m newly obsessed with soaking them to invent all sorts of things. This afternoon, I was on my way to making more milk, when I decided I NEEDED chocolate right meow – so my idea took a turn. I opened my pantry, spotted a few ingredients, then opened my fridge, and a lightbulb went off…..chocolate.mousse. boom. CLEAN. Chocolate mouse….oh yes, you heard me right!
  

Vegan Chocolate Mousse [dairy free]

Ingredients: 

  • 1/2 cup cashews, soaked for 48 hours
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (or non-vegan) raw, local honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup water 
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cacao powder 

 Directions: 

  1. Rinse cashews and add to blender (I use my ninja single serve cup)
  2. Add remaining ingredients, adding water last. Add half the 1/4 cup, try to blend, and if you need more liquid to blend, add gradually 
  3. Blend on high until well blended and mixture is whipped, like mousse-consistency 
  4. Serve with your favorite fruit and enjoy! I use strawberries, raspberries, and bananas it was AMAZE.
