Finally got around to using that Irish Moss in my cupboard and made some delicious Raw Chocolate Mousse from the Cafe Gratitude Cookbook, 'I Am Grateful.'. It was delectable and delightful. My temporary roommates are all now cacao-addicted. Here's the recipe:
1 oz. Irish Moss 1/2 cup water 4 cups almond milk (better if you make your own, though you can get some store bought) 1/2 cup date paste (you can make your own by blending pitted dates) 3/4 cup agave pinch of salt splash of vanilla 3/4 cup raw cacao powder 3 TB lecithin 1 cup coconut butter
Blend soaked Irish moss and water extremely well.(One of the reasons why a Vita-mix or other high speed blender is ideal.) Add all the other ingredients, except the lecithin and coconut butter. Keep blending until the mixture is smooth. Add lecithin and butter and blend another 30-40 seconds. Pour the mousse into cups and decorate with flower or cacao nibs.
