I was inspired by a recipe I saw on Goodveg for a raw cake, and used her raw mousse to make an indulgent pudding.
The longer you run the blender, the more air is worked in as well.
Raw Chocolate Mousse
- 1½ cups raw cashews, soaked in filtered water overnight and drained
- 1¼ cups filtered water
- 1/3 cup Raw Cacao Powder or unsweetened cocoa powder
- ¼ cup pure maple syrup
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- ¼ cup melted virgin coconut oil
Add the drained cashews, filtered water, cacao powder, maple syrup and vanilla to a high-speed blender (such as a Vitamix). Process on low, going up to high slowly, tamping as needed, until smooth. Spoon into serving dishes (custard cups work well), refrigerate until cold and set up.
This isn’t an overly sweet pudding. If you are used to more sugary desserts, add more to taste. You can also use agave or honey as well, both of which I find to be sweeter in taste.
