Raw Chocolate Mousse

This is another recipe from the raw foods class I took. Avocados help to make the mousse creamy, and it has a richly chocolate flavor. This recipe was perfect for Valentine's Day, served over some fresh strawberries. I froze the leftovers and enjoyed it the next day too!

-2 medium avocados
-1 cup rapadura or date sugar (I used date sugar)
-1 tsp. vanilla extract
-1/4 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
-3/4 cup organic cocoa or raw carob powder
-3/4 cup water, plus additional water to thin*

1. Process at the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Add additional water, if necessary, to thin to the desired consistency.
2. Enjoy immediately, or freeze in ice cube trays. Thaw for 5 minutes before serving.

*I used fresh coconut water in place of the water, and added fresh coconut meat to the mousse when blending.
