This recipe came from me not knowing what to make from dinner and not wanting to put any time or effort into the process. I looked in the fridge, grabbed a bunch of leftovers and came out with this 15-minute pasta. These are loose measurements because when I’m cooking for fun, I just add things …

Barrinhas de Gergelim

Eu amo gergelim. Tanto que eu como com mel como sobremesa ou como lanche. Por isso quando eu vi essa receita eu sabia que ela seria perfeita pra mim.

Chocolate dates mousse

Chocolate mousse

One of the hardest things about having good eating habits is that sugar is almost impossible to replace. I believe most sweeteners are as hazardous to the body as sugar, so I just keep away from them.

Looking in retrospect, I can see clearly that I was a sugar addict. I was an emotional eater and sugar was my drug of choice. So even after I stopped eating sugar, sometimes I still crave something sweet – after all, I’m a woman and PMS is real.

In one of this days I was really craving chocolate, but since I don’t buy it anymore, I had to do with what I had at home. After doing some research I found a few recipes, but as always they had too many ingredients or steps, so I simplified it and reduced to three ingredients. It takes less than 5 minutes to make and it is really delicious and vegan.

Enough talking. Here is the recipe:

Cocoa powder, pitted dates, and coconut milk

Chocolate-date Mousse

Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 5 mins
Total Time 10 mins
Course Dessert
Servings 2 cups

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups dates about 400g
  • 1 cup coconut milk (or any liquid of your choice)
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder

Instructions
 

  • Place the dates in a bowl and soak it with warm water for a couple minutes (you don't need to do this, but it makes much easier to process them).
    Soaking dates
  • Process the dates with the coconut milk and cocoa powder until it's uniform and it reaches a mousse texture.
    Chocolate mousse in the food processor
  • I don't believe in strict recipes so if you want to modify it, add only half of the liquid and keep adding until it reaches the desired texture. You can also add more cocoa powder if you like a more bitter flavor.
  • That's it!
