Raw Vegan Chocolate Mousse with Raw Vanilla Sauce

I have yet to try a raw dessert that I didn't like.  I usually find that they're on the expensive side at restaurants, so I thought I'd try making my own.  This raw chocolate mousse was super rich, crazy chocolate-y, and so easy to make!  
The accompanying vanilla sauce was a nice complement that balanced out the intensity of the mousse.  I got these recipes from Raw Food Made Easy for One or Two People, which has consistently surprised me with easy, raw, vegan, and insanely flavorful food.  Seriously, this is the best chocolate mousse I've ever had.  It's that good!  Wondering how to get that amazing mousse like consistency?  Avocados!  I was a bit skeptical when I put all the ingredients in the blender, but what came out was heaven!  Check out the mousse tart video on Jennifer Cornbleet's webpage for the recipe and the how-to on making this amazing raw dessert.
What is your favorite raw dessert?  I'm looking for more raw vegan cookbooks, so any recommendations would be most appreciated!

It's true - raw desserts are not likely to turn out horrible! They're always delicious! :-)

The mousse looks amazingly delicious - I want some! ;-)

When my daughters first tried out putting avocados in their raw desserts, they were skeptical also. But since then, they've loved the idea.

I review raw and vegan books on my blog - you could find a lot there! :-)

Thanks for sharing, you're blog is awesome!

I've been working on creating lots of raw vegan desserts (and other things) using avocados! I'm so glad you shared this. Currently my favorite raw dessert is banana pudding with a delicious brazil nut/hazelnut crust! The recipe is on my blog .
