You don't have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen making raw desserts. I am a no-nonsense kind of gal. I was craving some rich "chocolate-ty" goodness; so, I whipped up this raw chocolate mousse pie in 10-minutes.
In a high powered blender (like a Vitamix) or mixer add:
One whole avocado
1/4 chia seeds (grind in the coffee grinder first)
1/4 cup pecans (grind in the coffee grinder first)
1/2 cup of nut milk, or coconut milk, or any kind of milk such as rice or soy
dash sea salt
4 tablespoons cocoa powder (I used raw cacao powder)
1/4 cup sweetner (I used raw honey and pure maple syrup and additional stevia). You can also use raw agave, or raw sugar, etc...add to your taste
Throw everything into a high powered blender or mixer on high, and slowly add two tablespoons of room temperature coconut oil for added richness.
Add to a pie plate sprayed with oil, or put in pudding dishes.
For garnish, I grinded up some raw almonds, or use whipped cream. Put into the freezer to make a pie or leave in the fridge as a mousse pudding. Enjoy!
There is something about the color white. It's relaxing and serene to look at.
White slipcovers are a great way to keep your sofa clean; and, it's a neutral color to work with when you are considering interior decorating. When the slipcovers get dirty, throw them in the wash and let them soak with a little bleach.
My Vitamix was a hand-me-down from my brother about 18 years ago. It has served me well over the years; especially, the last few years since my journey with Raw Foods. I use it almost daily, sometimes 2-3 times a day to make smoothies, shakes, frozen desserts, blending soups, nut pates, and more.

It has an ole' fashion look; but, the motor runs like a charm. I did have to replace the pitcher, lid, and blade over time; however, it was worth it.
