Raw, dairy free, nut free, healthy

On a Sunday during the late afternoon when everything is quiet and we are settling down for the week ahead, I can often be found in the kitchen rustling up a little chocolate mousse for teatime. This one tastes creamy and super indulgent yet it’s dairy free and soya free too.

Personally, I love it with fresh raspberries or dolloped over a few slices of banana and topped with hazelnuts. Try adding a teaspoon of ground ginger to the mixture if you would like a ginger chocolate mousse.

NOTE: This keeps for between 2 or 3 days in the fridge if covered.
