Chocolate Cherry Mousse
This is one of the yummy desserts in our My Busy Healthy Life & Wonderfully Well cleanse! It is quick and easy to make, stores well in the freezer and really satisfies the chocolate cravings! I like to put it in the little plastic cups you get your salad dressing in at a salad bar, you can get them at GFS or Costco. I fill up those little cups with mousse and freeze them, then when I need a chocolate treat, it's ready and waiting, a wonderfully healthy chocolate treat that tastes like a fudgesicle.
- 3 perfectly ripe avocados (firm soft to touch like a ripe peach, dark but no indented black spots)
- 1- teaspoon lime juice
- 1 cup frozen or fresh PITTED dark cherries (if frozen keep the juice and add it to the mixture)
- 4 Tablespoons Raw Cacao or organic cocoa
- 5-10 drops liquid Stevia
- 2-4 Tablespoons raw local honey
- ½ teaspoon organic pure vanilla extract
- Dash Celtic sea salt

THAW Frozen cherries: Remove from freezer, thawing approximately 1 hour
Put in avocado and lime juice, blend well.
Add cherries and cherry juice (if frozen cherries) and blend well.
Add raw cacao or cocoa and blend well.
Add organic pure vanilla extract and blend well.
Add Celtic sea salt (about 1/8 teaspoon) and blend well.
NOW ADD THE SWEETENER, do this to taste.
First taste the mixture and decide how much sweeter it needs to be. Add honey and stevia in increments, remember, Stevia makes everything 100 times sweeter. Add 2 Tablespoons of honey and 3-4 drops Stevia, taste, continue alternating until it is the sweetness you like.
You may need to add a little more salt to taste as well.
Put in dessert cups, alternate with Coconut Crème Fraiche; if you like you can layer bananas and fruit in between or just put in a dessert cup or in a pie shell, top with slivered almonds, even put some almond butter on the bottom. Do it your way! Refrigerate one hour before serving. Will keep 3 days in fridge. Can be frozen, allow to set 10 minutes if frozen before serving. ** For individual servings, put into small dessert cups with lids, have one a day for several days!
