Dairy-free, gluten-free and a Paleo Diet friendly recipe. Perhaps not low fat but packed full of excellent vitamins and minerals! A nutritious treat! My food processor is not that good so it turned out a little mealy (although frankly still absolutely delicious) the better the blender the creamier this mousse will be. I am going to buy a better processor soon and then plan to adapt this into some form of ice cream next – yum!
- ¼ cup sun dried cherries soaked in a little boiling water
- ½ cup raw cashew pieces
- ½ cup raw chopped pecans
- ¼ cup organic good quality cocoa powder
- Pinch of sea salt
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ¾ – 1 cup water
Add the ingredients into a blender with half of the water and pulse on high speed to combine. If too thick keep adding in some more water slowly and continue blending until a thick, smooth and creamy paste forms. Scoop out into individual serving sized ramekins and refrigerate for a few hours to set.
