Lisa’s Raw Cacao Mousse

Raw Cacao Mousse

Raw cacao contains potent heart-healthy antioxidants called phenols that have been shown to help lower cholesterol and blood pressure. It’s also abundant in magnesium to support nervous system health and contains theobromine, which boosts endorphins, your brain’s pleasure chemicals. The same ones as when you fall in love. Avocados are a wonderful source of vitamin E, beta-carotene and heart-healthy mono-unsaturated fats.
