Raw, Vegan & Sugar-Free Chocolate Mousse. ~ Pauline Hanuise

This raw, sugar-free chocolate mousse could actually make a perfect chocolate smoothie as well.

You can adjust the consistency by varying the amount of coconut water you add to the blender. You can serve it very thick as a chocolate mousse or with a thinner consistency as a smoothie. It’s entirely up to you.

In any case, it’s not only delicious and super easy to make (with only four ingredients, plus some spices); it’s also totally suitable for diabetics and people with candida as there is no sugar in it.


• 1/2 ripe avocado

• 1/4 cup coconut water

• 1 cup young coconut flesh

• 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder

• 1 tablespoon tahini

• 1/5 cup cacao beans or nibs

• 1 pinch cinnamon

• 1 pinch unrefined sea salt

• 1 pinch vanilla powder

• 1/4 teaspoon stevia (you can use other sweeteners such as raw honey, date paste or maple syrup if you prefer)

• Sunflower seeds for topping (optional)


Blend all ingredients in your high speed blender, except the cacao beans/nibs and sunflower seeds.

Add the cacao beans/nibs at the end to keep the crunch.

Garnish with nibs, sunflower seeds and swirls of tahini.

Place in the fridge for 30 minutes if you want a very thick, chilled chocolate mousse.
