Serves 4


1/2 lb raw cashews ( soaked for 8 hours or over night)

1 pint fresh raspberries, ( or1/2 bag of organic frozen raspberries)

2-3 tbsp. Cacao Nibs

2-3 tbsp. goji berries, soaked for 15 minutes, drained

1/2 tsp. ground cardamon

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup maple syrup, or to taste

1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice, or to taste

a pinch of pink Himalayan salt

2 tbsp. unrefined coconut oil, melted

1 tsp rose water, Optional


Drain soaked cashews and lay them out on cotton dish towel.

Pour cashews into a food processor along with all the ingredients, EXCEPT , cacao nibs and goji berries.


Process for 5-7 minutes. It takes that long for the mixture to become really creamy. Pour mousse into a glass bowl, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Can be made a day ahead.


When chilled, lay a few goji berries and cacao nibs on the bottom of clear glass parfait or other glass. Spoon in a few tbsp. of mousse, then continue to layer. Sprinkle cacao nibs and goji berries on top.


Cooks note: if you do not have a high quality processor you might need to turn off the motor for a few seconds in-between blending.
