Rich, Raw Chocolate Mousse on a Chocolate Cookie Base, Served with Sliced Strawberries
tip: slice the strawberries before the dinner and mix in a bowl with a touch of water. Mix well and over the course of the dinner, the sugary juices of the fruit will come out making an extra sweet treat without the need of sweetener.
Chocolate Cookie Base
½ cup almonds
½ cup macadamia nuts
½ cup dates, pitted
1½ Tbsp raw cacao powder
In a food processor, process the nuts. Make sure to process in short burst so that it doesn't turn to butter. You want the nuts very finely ground.
Add the cacao powder and pulse the processor until it's well mixed in.
Add the dates and process (you can keep it on now, it won't turn to butter with all the other ingredients in there) until the dough is well blended. Watch your processor though to ensure that the dough isn't balling up; if it does, break it up with a spoon or spatula.
Take your cookie cutter (I used a heart shape one - so pretty!) and lightly coat it with coconut oil. Press into the cookie cutter a base with the crust of about 1/4".
Try two (mine got a bit stuck on the third one I made).
Serve with a side of fruit or almond cream and enjoy the deliciously velvet chocolate taste and all the compliments from your guests.
