Thread: Help with Carob Mousse

    Default Help with Carob Mousse

    Anyone know a raw item I can add to my carob mousse to make the carob not so overpowering? I want it to remain completely raw, though.

    I wonder if raspberries would do the trick.

    Bananas sound better than raspberries! Thanks. I don't like the strong taste of carob quite yet...

    I agree whit you there, it is very “caramelly” in some way.

    But carob mousse sounds good, can I have the recipe?

    Sure! Adapted from Raw Food Made Easy:

    Makes 1 cup, 2 servings


    1/4 c. pitted dates, soaked for 30 min.
    1/4 c. plus 2 T. water
    2 T. agave nectar
    seeds from vanilla bean
    3/4 c. chopped avocado (about 1 1/4 avocados)
    1/4 c. plus 2 T. carob powder


    Process the dates, 1/4 c. water, nectar, and vanilla until smooth. Add the avocado and carob; process until creamy. Add the 2 remaining tablespoons of water and mix briefly. Store in a sealed container. Keeps three days in refrigerator, two weeks in the freezer.

    Ok, I really need to READ that book I see, and not just have it in the shelf

    But avocado? That is probably why I have “forgotten” it, mixing avocado in a dessert? Well, I give it a try if I can get a hold of some decent avocados, and carob somewhere.

    Thanks

    The avocado makes it creamy. You could probably also use soaked cashews or something. I don't know. I'm still new at the raw food stuff.

    Can I use maple syrup instead of agave? (I don't mind if it's not 100% raw...)
    Peace, love, and happiness.

    Yes, that's what the recipe calls for, but I knew it wasn't raw.
