Raw Peanut Butter Chocolate Mousse

I’m sitting at the airport waiting for my flight, and what better way to spend my time than to blog about food???? (Or watch some 30 Rock on netflix…hmmmmm) I’m also pretty exhausted because I’ve been up recently having a 30 Rock marathon…I can’t believe I have never watched this show before. It’s hilarious. The writing, actors, story line….EVERYTHING is so incredibly funny. Of course I would start watching the night of the season finale. I know I am going to be so disappointed when I finally get to Season 7 and realize that it’s over. No more Liz Lemon on my screen…say it isn’t so : (

I am amazed with raw desserts…they are so tasty and have so much depth and flavor without being laden with flour or refined sugars. This chocolate mousse is a favorite of mine and I cannot wait to make it again. It’s super simple, all the prep you have to do is pretty much soaking the cashews overnight. Then pop all the ingredients in a blender and BOOM you got a dessert! Couldn’t be easier…no baking no boiling no nothing really!

The recipe is adapted from The Sweet Life, (you can find the original here) which is an amazing resource for simple vegan food. She also has a couple of raw desserts that I cannot wait to try and indulge in. Having the taste for raw desserts has surprisingly curbed my appetite for desserts rich in refined sugars and flour…which is great for my body! I feel nothing when I try to eat a candy bar…nothing I tell you…never thought that I would see the day.
