CARROT CAKE AND CHOCOLATE MOUSSE

15 04 2010

Ingredients 4 the crust:

6 carrots

1 cup dried fruits (your choice)

2 tbsp wheat flakes

2 tbsp dried coconut

cinnamon and nutmeg to taste

Ingredients 4 the mousse:

1 avocado

1 cup pitted dates

2 tbsp raw honey

4 or more tbsp carob powder or raw cacao powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

Preparing the crust:

Process the wheat flakes and then add the dried fruits (I used pears and dates) and process some more. Peel, wash and juice the carrots. Drink the juice to have energy for what’s to come 🙂 Put the first composition into a bowl, add the carrot pulp, the coconut, the cinnamon and nutmeg and mix (with your hands). You can form mini round cakes like I did and through them in the fridge.

Preparing the mousse:

Soak the dates in water for about 20 minutes and process together with the honey and vanilla extract. Mash the avocado with a fork and add to the food processor. You don’t want to overprocess your avocado! Add the carob or cacao powder and process to a creamy consistency. If the mousse is too hard, add a little bit of the soaking water from the dates. Put the mousse over the carrot crust and sprinkle with coconut flakes. Yummmmm…
