Raw Chocolate Raspberry Avocado Cake

Chocolate, raspberries and avocado? Sounds like a match made in heaven to me. I have a thing for raw desserts, especially ones with raspberry and chocolate. This recipe was inspired by a trip to a soul food vegan spot in Los Angeles. I was so impressed with their vegan cake that I tried to re-create what I thought it was that I ate there. All I remember was chocolate, raspberries and some form of nuts. I did my best to recreate the magic I experienced that day and I must say, i think I delivered this one right out of the ball park. Enjoy this no bake treat below!

Raw Chocolate Raspberry Avocado Cake

Servings: 2-4
Active time: 2 hours

Crust Ingredients:

  • 1 cup hazelnuts
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 10 medjool dates
  • 1 tbs raw cacao or cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp pink sea salt

Chocolate Mousse:

  • 4 small to medium sized avocados
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao or cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup agave or maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of pink salt

Raspberry Drizzle:

  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp unrefined coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or agave

Directions:

1. In a food processor add all the crust ingredients and blend. Make sure to pit the medjool dates first.
2. Once it’s mixed well, it will start to form a thick consistency.
3. Use parchment paper on top of a spring form pan. This pan is very important as it's much easier to work with.
4. Press firmly down until the entire surface is covered and your crust is set, now place this into the freezer while you finish the rest.
5. Add all the mousse ingredients into a blender and blend until silky smooth. If you find it too thick, slowly add more almond milk until reaching the preferred texture.
6. After 30 minutes remove your crust and pour in your chocolate mousse filling, then put back into the freezer for one hour.
7. Over a sauce pan on low heat, mix your raspberry drizzle ingredients all together. This will not take long.
8. After around the first 30 minutes that your cake has been in the freezer remove it, and paint your sauce all over the top of your cake like a piece of art. There’s no right or wrong way to do it. Also if you like, you can add any extra nuts you might have as toppings, just make sure to crush them first.
9. Now place the entire thing back into the freezer for the remaining half hour and check it, you should be good to go by then! Enjoy.
