Vegan Chocolate Mousse
This recipe is ridiculously easy, and completely more-ish. I have now made it twice, (something that is pretty rare around here.) You would know I am all about the flavour by now, I trust. I do notice I have reduced my tolerance for sweetness in desserts. (Shock horror) but I think this is due to the ongoing love affair I am having with the Thermomix. I guess over time my palate has changed completely. I can taste a preservative at ten paces.
I am full on fussy with dessert...well, some would say, full on fussy in general when it comes to food. And this vegan chocolate mousse ticks all my boxes. I think the key to the winning combo is the smoothness of the date paste you create at the beginning. So don’t feel as though you cannot add a little more water to blend it to a smooth consistency. Having said all that, a few little textural elements of the dates can seem like chocolate bits...so it’s not all bad!
I hope you enjoy...again...and again. (OH and you can halve this recipe. Keep covered in the fridge until you are ready to serve.)
