This recipe was contributed by our friend and raw food dessert master Lori Clayton-Temple. You can find out more about her here on her facebook page:

Here’s the raw food recipe:

Spicy Mexican Chocolate Mousse

– .5 Ounces dried, Irish Moss (note: rinse really well in cold water and let soak for at least 20 min in warm water, will yield 3.15 wet moss)
– 1 Cup Hemp Seed Milk (note to make hemp milk: 1 Cup Hemp Seeds to 3 cups water and blend, no need to strain)

In a high speed blender, blend well, stopping to scrape down the sides. Blend well.

Add to the blender:

– 1 Cup Hemp Seed Milk
– 1/8 Cup Hemp Seeds (Optional to make it extra creamy, not needed though)
– 3/4 Cup Honey or Pure Maple Syrup
– 3/4 cup Cacao Powder
– 1 TBSP Vanilla Powder
– 1/8 tsp Sea Salt
– 1 TBSP Kev?s Ceylon Cinnamon powder
– 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
– 1/4 tsp Allspice
– pinch of cayenne

Blend well, stopping to scrape down sides of blender.

Finally Add:

– 1/2 Cup slightly warmed Coconut Oil
– 2 TBSP Lecithin (we prefer Healthforce Nutritionals)

Let set up in refrigerator for a few hours or overnight.

Serve as a parfait, pie or tart. Garnish with a few Cacao nibs, goji berries, chopped almonds, a bash of cinnamon or a drizzle of raw chocolate sauce.

Enjoy with friends!

Live Awesome!

    Doesn’t Irish Moss have carageenan? My book on MSG talks a bit about carageenan and how it’s carcinogenic and should be avoided. Does that only apply in processed foods/products due to the processing of carageenan? Recipe looks yummy, though. 🙂

  2. I could share it with my wife. She does all the cooking anyway :). The Mousse looks delicious. You probably can’t even taste the Irish Moss


  3. Mmmm that looks so good!
    I just took a moment from studying about plant reproduction for my bio class to watch your video.. how suiting!! Can’t believe how amazing plants really are!!
    I would probably share it with my mother under a warm blanket next to a fire!

  4. Dodie says:

    I really enjoy your site with all of your fresh programs and/or recipes. The only problem is I’m not able to enjoy the food yet as I am on the body ecology diet. It’s so hard and I can’t wait to try out your food. Keep up the great work.

  5. Lori says:

    🙂 I’m so glad you liked the recipe! Lori

  6. RJ says:

    I’m sharing this with my sister who is a writer. I want to help her decorate her “woman cave” and this will be her signature drink when she has friends over for readings of her latest writings.

    Thank you Kevin and Ann!

    I love you both…and that cute “cooking angel” at the beginning of the show…well…who was that mysterious young man…a budding raw food preparer…No?

  7. RJ says:

    Dear Lori,

    Thank you for sharing this creation with Annmarie & Kevin. My sister will love this.

  8. Roxy Harte says:

    @Julia You may find the information at this site reassuring:
    A quote from the article says, “There are two types of carrageenan, undegraded (food-grade) and degraded (hydrolyzed with acid). Undegraded carrageenan has been used on a huge scale in food production worldwide since the 1930s, and its safety has been assured by the FDA Gras status…Chemically treated, degraded carrageenan however, is a known carcinogen (cancer causing agent) and is not used or permitted in food production.”
    As I understand, the product Kevin and Ann use has not been chemically treated…

    How long does Irish Moss stay fresh for? And, can it be prepared ahead and stored? Thanks

  10. Lori says:

    That’s awesome RJ! I hope she likes it…but it isn’t a drink…its a Mousse/Pudding, I suppose you could drink it with a straw, but I think a spoon would make it yummier!

  11. jackie says:

    Do you have a waiting list for the moss? There doesn’t seem to be a way to order it now, so if you let us order anyway, you might have a better idea how much more to get.

  12. Joe says:

    Have you slept after or…? 😀

    … was for breakfast? 😉

  13. Alice Sutton says:

    I would share this wonderful dessert with my husband, that I do not see very mush. He love sweet, this would bright some fire back to the relationship.

  14. Jessic a says:

    With my lover!

  15. Karen says:

    I would like to share it with you two. I really appreciate all you guys do!!

  16. eyla says:

    Wow, that looks amazing! I would share it with my beloved!
    On the carageenan issue, I would like to add that often plants contain so called ‘toxic’ elements that are declared by this or that foundation/agency/expert, and if you isolate those elements. especially with nasty chemicals then maybe this is an issue, but plants are so much more than one element, and often contain thousands of elements/chemicals which balance eachother and create perfect synergy.
    Maybe we need to stop isolating and standardizing plant chemicals and move back towards whole foods like those in the recipe.

    Thanks for the recipe!

  17. Any recos on where to find the irish moss? There are plenty of options on the web, I’ve just never shopped for this before to even know what specs I’m looking for. Cheers!

  18. john says:

  19. +Andrianna says:

    I would share this with “snailey” who started his raw adventure the first of September. He’s a chocophile!

  24. Lynn says:

    In NZ we are not able to buy Hemp seeds (only the oil. What could I use as a substitute? This looks so yummy and I would love to able to try it out on the family 🙂

  25. Lucy says:

    Of course I’d share this recipe with my wonderful husband!!!

    My question is to AnneMarie. OMG! You look sooo gorgeous!
    Your hair is long,luscious and beautiful,your skin is amazing and you look so vibrant,so strong and lean.
    What is your recipe,PLEASE!
    I’d love to look like you.
    so much love,

  26. apurvo says:

    i would share it with the whole world and if everyone had some maybe they would all be a little happier and this world would look a little different ……this world could use a little more raw chocolate mousse….

    on another note…….
    it loos amazing and i love irish moss and i love chocolate, but for my adrenals i’m trying to get off chocolate……
    do you know any recipes for irish moss that are yummy desserts and don’t use chocolate?


  27. afke says:

    I would guess that you can make this recipe without the Irish moss too. It would be more of a pudding and less of a pie.
    You could increase the coconut oil too.

    I love “Hot” chocolate anything.

  28. afke says:

    For NZ.; Simply make some fresh almond mylk to replace hemp seeds.

    Ratio; 1 cup soaked almonds, 2 cups pure water.
