Tuesday’s Tasty Treats: Lemon & Avocado Mousse

Recipes, The Root Chakra

Lemon desserts are one of my favorites! I pretty much love all fruit based desserts, like eton mess, apple crumble, apple pie, lemon meringue, and so on! Nowadays I don’t eat sugar laden desserts but have found a way to make my own versions of them with healthy ingredients instead. Guilt free desserts and no groggy feelings the day after are important to me.

The combination of the creaminess of the avocado and the astringent lemon is to die for!

My Lemon & Avocado Mousse is IMG_3397

  • Dairy Free
  • Gluten Free
  • Sugar Free
  • Cacao Free
  • Vegan

This makes mousse for 2.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 lemon, the flesh, no rind
  • 1 cup of cashews, soaked.
  • 1 dropperful of stevia
  • 1/3rd cup melted coconut oil
  1. Blend the avocado with the lemon,
  2. Add in the cashews and stevia, blend again,
  3. Finally add the coconut oil. You will probably need to stir a few times between blends, once the mixture is smooth and a perfect mousse consistency it’s ready.
  4. Serve straight away, or chill for an hour in the fridge.

You can also freeze this and eat frozen like an ice-cream/sorbet.

Enjoy!

Recipes, The Root Chakra, Tuesday's Tasty Treats

Raw Creamy Coconut Bars

These tasty treats are quick and easy, require no oven (just a blender), and kids love making them!

All you need is :

▪    2 cups of coconut flakes

▪    1 cup of melted cacao butter

▪    2-3 dropperfuls of stevia (nu naturals is my favourite) you can use a healthy sweetener of choice, raw honey, coconut palm sugar etc..

▪    3 tbsp of Coconut Butter,

Pour the melted cacao butter into a blender/food processor. Add in the Coconut flakes, the stevia and the Coconut Manna. Mix until well combined.

Press into a square tupper wear box or anything rectangle of square-shaped. I used 2 tupper ware tubs approx 5 by 4 inches.

Put into the freezer for 30 mins or the fridge for an hour or more until the mixture has set. Then cut into squares and serve.

Amp up the yumminess even more by coating in raw chocolate!

  • 1 cup of Cacao butter melted
  • ¼ cup of Cacao powder
  • 2-3 tbsp of Agave Syrup,

Mix together and dip the Coconut bars into the bowl to coat. Place in fridge to set.
