We all need a dessert every now and then and this one you can eat without feeling any remorse after. It is filled with healthy fats, plenty of protein and Vitamin E. I shop for my ingredients at Whole Foods Market because I know will always get non-GMO, clean products. I also always buy organically and want to encourage you, where you can, to buy organically too. No one needs any extra toxins from the outside world!
Please take note, this is not a dessert to eat while cleansing but is great while transitioning or as an occasional treat 20%.
Ingredients for the Base
2 cups Whole Food Markets (WFM) raw pecans
1 cup Whole Food Markets raw hazelnuts
1 tablespoon Whole Food Markets 365 organic olive oil
1/4 tsp Celtic fine ground salt
Grated rind 1 lemon
2 Tbls lemon juice
Ingredients for the Filling
3/4 cup Carob Powder
1 ½ cups Almond Butter (raw) Whole Food Markets
½ cup WFM 365 unsweetened Almond Milk (you can substitute for Coconut milk or any other milk if you prefer)
1 tsp Orange Essence
¾ cup WFM 365 Organic Olive Oil
Pinch Celtic Salt
2 tsp vanilla essence
6 drops English Toffee liquid Stevia WFM Whole Body (you can also you plain liquid or powder stevia if you wish.
How to Make
For the base, in a food processor, mix all the ingredients for the base to fine breadcrumbs and press into a 9″ pie tin or pie plate and set aside. For the filling, in a high-speed blender, place all the ingredients and blend to a smooth, thick puree. Pour the filling into the base and place in the freezer for 30 – 40 minutes. When ready to serve, grate some hazelnuts or some lemon rind on top or place some whole hazelnuts decoratively around. Slice and serve – Yum!
**You can even make the mousse into an ice-cream by adding a little more nut milk and pour into ice-cream moulds to eat as frozen pops, or add to an ice-cream maker and make delicious scoopable ice-cream. Watch out, this really is going to grab you by the shoulders and say EEEEEEEEEEAT MEEEEEEEEEE!
It is an Outstanding Day!
