Valentine's Day Recipe: Four-Ingredient Raw Chocolate Mousse

Valentine's Day is upon us, and for all you procrastinators out there, it's time to make with the drugstore chocolates and sidewalk stand flowers. But if your significant other is vegan -- or has other dietary restrictions -- you might be SOL. Handing a dairy-free eater a box of milk chocolates will place you squarely in the dog house.

The good news is, whipping up this four-ingredient raw chocolate mousse will make you look both thoughtful and considerate of his/her dietary needs. And it's damn delicious, too. Check out the easy recipe after the jump.

Rawvocado Mousse


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 cup Medjool dates-pitted
  • ½ cup raw cacao
  • ½ cup ice cubes


Blend in a high powered blender until smooth.

Serve the yumminess with strawberries or any other antioxidant rich addition. Because nothing says I love you (and I want you to live, like, forever) like heart-healthy sweets.
