“It astounds me how you can recreate your favourite desserts using simple wholefoods that just so happen to be nature’s superfoods,” writes Taline Gabrielian in the introduction to the recipe in her Hippie Lane cookbook.

“This chocolate mousse is a combination of heart-healthy avocado, cacao and dates, blended with mesquite powder, vanilla, rice malt syrup and your milk of choice. Easy, quick and delicious.”

Subtitled “Wholefood goes deliciously luxe”, Hippie Lane The Cookbook contains a collection of wholefood recipes for every occasion by Gabrielian, founder of the Hippie Lane website.
