I'm really enjoying making raw concoctions in the Omniblend blender I bought from Best Blenders. Comes with a recipe book for soups, sauces, savouries, spreads, dressings and desserts. Omniblend has 6 blades like the Vitamix that pros use but it's about a third of the price!

Chocolate mousse
2 med or 3 small avocados
1/2 - 2/3 c raw honey or agave nectar (I also use stevia)
1/4 c water
3 Tbsp cacao powder
2 Tbs carob powder (I don't like carob so just use more cacao)
12 tsp pure vanilla extract
pinch sea salt

Process all ingreds in the blender till creamy. Add more water if needed. Pour into bowls and chill for a couple of hours. Serve with cashew cream and sliced fruit.

Cashew whipped cream
1 c cashews
1 c coconut milk
3 Tbs raw honey or agave
1 Tb lemon juice
1 Tbs vanilla extract
pinch salt


1/2 c melted coconut oil
1 Tbs lecithin

Process all top ingreds in the blender until smooth. Add coconut oil and lecithin and blend briefly just to combine. Pour into container and chill in the fridge until firm.
