Black Bean Chocolate & Mint Mousse w Vanilla Cream

Black Bean Chocolate & Mint Mousse w Vanilla Cream
Don't you love it when people are trying to guess the ingredients in a dish and just can't put their finger on it? ;-) Cream made from cashews, mousse made from black beans, raw cacao and raw nectar, it's a lot healthier than the sugar laden, dairy based original chocolate mousse.
Prepared by:
Cuisine: vegan
Recipe type: dessert, snack
Serves: 6
Prep time: 
Total time: 
You need
  • ½ can of black beans, quickly drained
  • 2.5 tbsp (raw) cacao powder
  • ¼ cup raw agave nectar
  • 5 leaves of mint (or more to taste)
  • ¼ tsp vanilla bean paste
  • a tiny pinch of salt
  • Stevia to sweeten more, optional
For the vanilla cream:
  • ½ cup of Cashew Cream (better if this one is a little thick)
  • 2 tbsp raw coconut or agave nectar
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste or natural essence
  • 1 tsp of toasted pine nuts
  • 1 tsp of cocoa nibs (or grated/chopped vegan chocolate)
To do
  1. blend all ingredients for the mousse
  2. to make the vanilla cream; mix the Cashew Cream with the nectar and vanilla
  3. scoop the chocolate mousse in small glasses (or in bigger ones, of course) and layer with vanilla cream
  4. top with cocoa nibs and the pinenuts
  5. and you're done!
Notes
This makes 6 liqueur glasses, just double amounts for more.
