Orange Fig Chocolate Mousse

This is probably the quickest chocolate mousse you can ever make. It is raw, vegan and sweetened only with the natural sweetness of fruits. My son is generally not a big fan of figs or avocado, but one spoon of this wholesome mousse in his mouth and he could not resist anymore. He is a fan of this combination now:). 



Ingredients:
  • Fresh squeezed orange juice - from 3 clementines
  • Dried figs - 4
  • Raw cacao powder - 3 Tbs
  • Avocado - 3 (well ripened)
  • Orange zest - to garnish

Directions:
  • Add orange juice and fig to a blender/Vitamix and puree well.
  • Add cacao powder and avocado flesh and continue blending till creamy and fluffy, for about 20 - 30 seconds.
  • That's it, scoop into 3 or 4 mini dessert cups, optionally garnish with bits of orange zest.
  • Enjoy!!
 Note: this is just mildly sweet, so feel free  to increase number of figs if you want a more sweeter version.

  1. Hi Mini,
    I love chocolate so I was immediately drawn to this delectable dessert! I can't believe how quick and easy it is to make. I am also delighted to use figs for the first time. I have to admit that I never buy them, so this will be my opportunity. Thank you so much for sharing this satisfying and delicious Orange Fig Chocolate Mouse recipe at the Plant-Based Potluck Party Blog Hop! I appreciate it!
