My YouTube video library is a ready resource you can turn to whenever you want to do more than just read a recipe. The demos I’ve created will let you see watch me ‘in action’ as I put together various recipes...often in under 10 minutes.
One of the most popular demos in my library that’s gotten nearly three times more hits than any other demo is my raw food Chocolate Mousse video.
Chocolate mousse is on the dessert menu at lots of upscale restaurants. It’s rich and creamy with a deep chocolate flavor that’s positively addictive. What’s also ‘addictive’ is the massive amount of refined sugar that goes into most recipes. But my recipe for Raw Chocolate Mousse delivers everything you love about mousse, but uses all-natural ingredients to create it.
One of those ingredients is maple syrup which is a much healthier sweetener than processed sugar. Maple syrup contains a little bit of potassium and calcium whereas refined sugar is nothing but empty calories. And besides, maple syrup tastes amazing!
Kids love this mousse because it reminds them of chocolate pudding. Or you can freeze it and make ‘mousse-cream’-like ice cream, but without the dairy. And when you spoon this mousse into my a raw food crust made with nuts, coconut, and dates, you can turn it turns into an elegant chocolate mousse tart that grown-ups will adore.
Warning! You may want to go overboard on portion sizes with this recipe, but you need to take care. Raw food chocolate mousse may be made with nutritious ingredients, but it is not a ‘diet dish’ that is low in calories.
