Chia parfait choc

Another amazing recipe from the 30 Day Nourish Restore Empower Challenge Season 2 facebook group. Thank you girls!

Serves 6

Ingredients:

Cashew Cream:

1 cup raw cashews
1/2 cup water
1 medjool date
1/4 teaspoon vanilla powder or extract

Chocolate Mousse:

2-3 avocados (depending on size)
3-4 bananas (depending on size)
2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
2 medjool dates (or to taste)
1 teaspoon vanilla powder or extract

Chocolate Brownie:

1 cup walnuts (or 1/2 cup pecans, 1/4 cup cashews, 1/4 cup almonds)
6 medjool dates (or more if your dates are small)
2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
2 teaspoons maca or mesquite powder (optional)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder or extract

To Assemble:

2 bananas, sliced (toss in lemon juice to prevent browning if not using straight away)
cacao nibs, chopped nuts (optional)

Method:

1. In a high-speed blender, process Cashew Cream ingredients on the fastest speed until completely smooth. Add extra water if required. Place in fridge while you prepare the other layers. Don’t bother washing out the blender, the cashew cream dregs will add creaminess to the mousse, plus that’s just extra work.
2. In the blender, process Chocolate Mousse ingredients on the fastest speed until completely smooth. Place in fridge while you prepare the brownie mixture.
3. In a food processor, process brownie ingredients until mixture resembles crumbs, not completely smooth but a little sticky
4. In a mason jar, glass or glass bowl place a layer of mousse, a layer of banana slices, a layer of brownie, a layer of cashew cream, and another layer of mousse. Sprinkle with cacao nibs and chopped nuts. Top with extra banana slices just before serving.
5. Chill before serving (or eat straight away if you don’t want to wait).
