Avacado, Mint and Raspberry Cacao Mousse

Vegan, Vegetarian, Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Wheat-free, Yeast-free, Guilt-free
Very quick & easy Raw Avacado, fresh Mint, Raspberry, Cacao Mousse with homemade Dairy-free Chocolate Decorations!
(Holly berries are only for decoration only, must NOT be eaten)

As its coming up to the festive season, i decided to create a healthy dessert using only natural Sugars.
The Mint leaves and raspberry remind me of the Holly leaves and berries, i really enjoyed making these little Desserts. I wanted to make some decorations which are edible (so of course i opted for Chocolate) 

This Mousse contains Avocado, which is one of my favourite foods at the moment and has great health benefits. You can read all about Avocado and its wonderful benefits on my blog post linked below-

The Cacao adds a lovely dark Chocolaty flavour, whilst being packed with Nutrients and goodness!

Why not indulge in a healthy treat, which tastes too good to be true<3

How to make the Chocolate Decorations!
This is the exact way i made my chocolate waffle on my Lemon Cheesecake recipe. 
You can check out the recipe here-

All i did for these, was drizzle some melted dairy-free Chocolate onto Grease proof paper in different shapes and whilst the Chocolate was still liquidly,  place on some Mint leaves to look like a Tree and some Raspberry bits to give a really effective...effect :P
I think they really add to the dessert and make it look special and eye catching!


Decorate your Mousse with your Chocolate Decorations and some mashed Rasberry and a mint leaf. Mashed Raspberry tastes delightful mixed into this Mousse! 
I also sprinkled some Sesame seeds ontop for added texture, and Protein :)
It could even be serve up with some cheeky Soya/Coconut Cream.

Keep the Mousse chilled in the Fridge until ready to indulge :)

And were all done!!!
