2 Ripe avocados, large (or 2 cups of flesh from smaller avos)
180 g Pure Maple Syrup
30 g Coconut sugar or rapadura sugar (or 2-4 tbsp to taste)
2 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp tamari sauce (can use soy sauce if not GF)
2 tbsp Cold-pressed virgin coconut oil
75 g raw cacao powder
Place avocado flesh in the TM bowl. Puree for 20secs on Sp 5. Scrape down sides of bowl and repeat.
(This step is optional, but I find it gives a much smoother end result)
Add remaining ingredients except cacao powder & blend for 1 min, 37C, Sp 6. The slight heat helps to melt & emulsify the coconut oil.
Add cacao powder & blend for 30 secs on speed 6. Scrape down sides of bowl with spatula & taste mixture. Adjust balance of flavours if required then mix for another 30 secs on speed 6 or until the mousse is totally smooth & glossy (using spatula to assist if required).
Can be served straight away (fantastic with fresh strawberries) or refrigerated for a firmer dessert.
Here, it is served with strawberry coulis (from the EDC) & vanilla bean icecream.
My daughter used non-stick egg rings as a mould for the dessert in the main picture. This recipe can also be used as a vegan ganache when cold.

Raw cacao is the best food source of magnesium & this is such a yummy way to eat it! Most people would never guess the ingredients in this rich dessert - don't tell them it's (relatively) healthy
