Raw Banana Chocolate Mousse

This mousse is high in antioxidants and healthy fats. It is dairy free and gluten free. Filled with fruit, chia seeds and goodness. It is a decadent raw dessert that could fool even the most avid dairy lovers. It is creamy, light and oh-so satisfying!

This chocolate mousse is easy to use in other recipes, such as a cake filling or as a side for other raw desserts. It is an absolute favourite in our house.
