Chocolate Date Mousse

More sugar-free desserts. Yes, please. My kids grab their spoons and dig in!

This chocolate mousse (made with dates) is very rich and will really satisfy your sweet tooth.

As with other sugar-free desserts, it should still be treated as a treat. No, there is no refined white sugar, but it still is not like eating carrots or lentils!

But how delicious! Yes, you can give it to the kids, but this is also a grownup-kind-of-dessert that you could serve without shame after a dinner party.

Ingredients

200g pitted fresh dates

400ml thick coconut milk or coconut cream

50g unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

3 T melted coconut oil

60g fresh raspberries, plus extra to serve

Method

Blend the dates to a paste in a food processor. Add all of the remaining ingredients, except the extra raspberries and blend until smooth.

Pour into six ramekins and chill for at least three hours. Serve topped with extra raspberries.

You can also add whipped cream on top, or substitute cashew cream or whipped coconut cream to keep it dairy-free.
