Chocolate Mousse

Happy Friday! I am currently obsessed with chocolate mousse and I made it several times this week but unfortunately I neglected to photogragh it each time...that's what cravings do to your brain :) But I did include a flashback Friday pic below of the mousse in little pies, a recipe I made a few months ago. It's just as good if you eat it up plain though especially when you're craving chocolate. I made the mousse today and put it on a pie crust to take to my friend's place tonight for her bday.

Chocolate Mousse Recipe:
2-3 ripe bananas (or 2 ripe avocados)
2 scoops of chocolate protein powder or 4 tbsp of cacao powder
3 tbsp of maple syrup (if you use the cacao powder)

If you use the chocolate protein powder, you won't need the maple syrup. The protein powder I use is already sweet enough. You use maple syrup if you use the cacao powder. You can also use agave nectar
Put the avocados or bananas in your food processor along with the protein powder or cacao powder and the sweetener and blend on high. The pudding should be thick at room temp and then eat immediately or refrigerate. It's so decadent that it's hard to believe it's made from natural ingredients.
Some tips: cut up the avocado and banana into small pieces before you add to your food processor. Taste the pudding and add more sweetener if needed. If you don't like bananas or avocados or prefer not to use them, you can soak 6 medjool dates and use them as the sweetener.

If you want to make vanilla pudding, use bananas for that and add either vanilla protein powder or vanilla extract, both should be sweet enough without added sweetener.
I hope you enjoy this! Is anyone addicted to chocolate like I am??

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!

How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
