As Marash Girl has the habit of celebrating her birthday for weeks on end, her children have picked up the message -- any old day'll do for a birthday celebration.
And so Marash Girl was treated to a birthday dinner by her daughter, who cooks raw. . . It was delicious! Even more amazing, however, was the dessert.
One of Marash Girl's favorite vegetables is avocado, perfectly ripened, and short of simple avocado, guacamole will do. She spied the avocado on the table, a perfectly ripe avocado! How did you find an avocado that was ready to eat? Marash Girl asked. The nonchalant answer from her daughter: Oh, I just gave each one a little squeeze until I had the perfect avocado! Marash Girl continued, rather ungraciously, Why are you not adding the avocado to the salad? Oh, that's for dessert, her daughter answered...
No objections there, Marash Girl thought. Marash Girl loves ripe avocados so much, that she could eat them as appetizer, main course, and dessert! But was she ever surprised when her daughter presented her with the dessert: Avocado Chocolate Mousse! Ever had it? Here's the recipe, more or less.
AVOCADO CHOCOLATE MOUSSE
1 perfectly ripe fresh avocado, pitted and peeled
1/3 cup cocoa (raw cocoa, if you're a raw foodie, can be ordered at rawfoodworld.com)
1/3 cup agave nectar (or sugar) (raw agave nectar, if you're a raw foodie)
Blend in food processor until thick and smooth (approx. 15 seconds). Adjust sugar and cocoa to taste.
This time-saving dessert is guilt free, dairy free, gluten free, perfect for vegetarians, popular among raw foodies and vegans alike. Even omnivores love this birthday dessert, a dessert to be remembered!
N.B. Marash Girl had the leftovers this morning for breakfast with fresh bananas! What a breakfast!
