Raw Chocolate Mousse

Featured

Thick, Fluffy and Rich

1 can of coconut cream
4-6 tablespoons of cacao/cocoa powder
1/2 tsp cayenne
Generous pinch of salt
Powdered sugar (to taste) (I powdered coconut)
1 tsp vanilla

  1. Chill the cream for 8 hours. You want the fat and water to separate. You will only be using the fat. For this reason don’t shake the can after it’s been chilled.
  2. Scrape that fat into a bowl, add the rest of the ingredients and if you have an immersion blender, it will whip in under 5 minutes. If not, use a hand whisk and whisk for about 10-15 minutes.
  3. Make sure you have as little physical contact with the bowl to maintain the chilled temperature.
  4. Once it’s reached soft peak, leave it to thicken in the fridge before serving.

I set my homemade raw sprouted buckwheat granola at the bottom of the cup and then the mousse. Topped with cacao nibs and fresh pomegranate seeds.

3-ingredient chocolate sauce

Rich, thick and delicious

You can have your chocolate sauce and eat it. Here’s a recipe for a magnesium and iron rich chocolate sauce with only three ingredients:

2 cups of toasted walnuts
1/4 cup of plantbased protein powder
1/4 cup of cacao powder

Walnuts toast fast so please watch the oven carefully. I used Sun Warrior protein powder and it has about 11 different ingredients in it like kelp, spirulina, stevia, tremella mushroom, bamboo silica etc. I must admit the stevia taste takes getting used to. If you have a sugar-free powder, use that and add your own sugar.

Ingredients

Invest in a good quality cacao powder. The difference between something like the Navitas brand and Hershey’s is like the difference between an aged, refined wine and Costco boxed wine.

Blend all three ingredients together for about 2-3 minutes in high speed. Leave it to thicken for a few hours in the fridge. Overnight best.

Enjoy with fresh fruit, pancakes, ice-cream or cake. It will make a great filler between cakes.

Fermented Vegan Cheese Class

IMG_4664

raw, fermented tree-nut cheese

This class never gets old. It’s wonderful that people are still eager to learn how to make fermented tree-nut cheese and do it regularly at home. This time, I taught this class in collaboration with integrative nutrition school, Enliven. The founder, Dr. Lichuan Chen, earned his PhD in toxicology at the University of Kentucky and did post-doctoral research at the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland (outside Washington, DC). He continued his work at the Office of Alternative Medicine, now renamed National Center for Integrative Medicine.

At the age of 37 Dr.Chen discovered his medical intuitive abilities while studying human energy systems and has integrated his talents to create unique wellness systems. Presently Dr. Chen spends his time teaching in Taiwan and Malaysia and brings people to India to experience ancient Indian healing and detoxification procedures from the system known as Siddha Vaidya which pre-dates Ayurvedic medicine.

I met Dr. Chen at my restaurant years ago and since then have always delighted in listening to his wisdom about diet and nutrition and enjoying his charismatic, warm energy. He has hundreds of loyal followers who apply his teachings to their daily lives and benefit tremendously through it.

He has written several nutrition books that have landed on the Taiwan Top 10 Best Sellers List in the nutrition category, amongst them books on healthy oils and the ketogenic diet, which he strictly follows.

When Dr. Chen found my restaurant, he became a supporter and shared news about our high fat, zero to no carb and healthy protein menu. Soon, I started teaching at his school. I love teaching at his school because people there are passionate, serious and intuitive about food and its immediate impact on the body.
