Brace yourself. We are about to share a recipe for a delicious, healthy dessert. You read that right. We just used "delicious," "healthy," and "dessert" all in the same sentence. Get ready to treat yourself...while also doing your body a favor! This recipe and other treats can be found in The Bone Broth Secret by Louise Hay and Heather Dane.
The spices used in this amazing chocolate mousse recipe work to boost your metabolism, balance your blood sugar, and reduce or eliminate cravings. Unlike most store bought desserts, this one won't cause your blood sugar to spike or take your energy levels through extreme peaks and valleys. In fact, it'll actually support your digestive health and sustain your energy.
Love is The Ultimate Spice!
|20 Medjool dates, pitted||1 cup water|
|1 cup TFC AIP Beef Bone Broth||2 cups coconut butter|
|6 egg yolks||1 cup raw cacao powder|
|2 tbsp molasses||2 tbsp honey|
|2 tbsp cinnamon||1½ tbsp cardamom|
|2 tsp ginger||1½ tsp sea salt|
|1 tsp black pepper||½ tsp nutmeg|
|¼ tsp cloves||10 drops Urban Moonshine Organic Citrus Bitters|
Heat up water and put in a bowl; add dates to soften up (about 10 minutes).
Add the softened dates to your electric mixer, food processor with the S-blade, or high-speed blender; blend thoroughly. (If you don't have a food processor or high-speed blender, wait until the dates get so mushy that you can easily blend them up with a fork. This might take 20-30 minutes.)
Add the rest of the ingredients and continue to blend up until everything is thoroughly mixed.
Put this mixture into a glass bowl with a lid, and store in your refrigerator for up to 4 days. After this, store any leftovers in your freezer for up to 4 months. This recipe freezes very well and is wonderful to take out as a fast dessert, even for a dinner party.
Enjoy as is. Or, add raspberries, thin orange slices, strawberries, or goji berries.
We recommend our AIP Beef Bone Broth, however, you can substitute with our AIP Chicken Bone Broth, as well. We suggest our AIP versions as they are more "neutral" in flavor than our regular full formulations. If you only have our regular beef or chicken bone broth, those will also work but might alter the flavor profile a bit.
In place of citrus bitters, you can substitute with 8 drops of juice from a fresh orange, 3 drops or orange extract, or 4 drops juice of a fresh lemon.
