Vegan Chocolate Mousse

Source:  Whole Foods Market Recipes 

Ingredients: Vegan Chocolate Mousse
  • 3/4 cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup packed pitted dates (about 20)
  • 1 (15 ounce) can puréed organic butternut squash
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk beverage, more if needed
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Fresh raspberries (optional)
  • Grated coconut (optional)

Place cashews and dates in a medium bowl and cover with very hot water. Let soak for 2 hours to soften. Drain well.

Place drained cashews and dates, butternut squash and coconut milk in a high-powered blender or food processor and process until smooth (this may take 1 to 2 minutes). Add cocoa and vanilla. Process again, adding a bit more coconut milk if needed to make a smooth, mousse-like texture. Chill at least 1 hour or until ready to serve. Garnish with raspberries and coconut.
