Raw chocolate cups

150g almonds
2 teaspoons chia seeds
120g dates
½ cup cocoa powder
2 tablespoons of water
Pinch of salt

Chocolate & Berry mouse

2 ripe bananas
2 tablespoons coconut sugar
100g organic dark chocolate
1 avocado
150g red forest berries (frozen)
3 tablespoons coconut milk


  1. Start by placing the chia seeds in a small bowl and add 4 teaspoons of water. Stir together and leave to the side
  2. Place the dates in a separate bowl and top them up with hot water so they are just covered, put to the side. Let both stand for 20 min
  3. Next, melt the chocolate together with the coconut sugar over a water bath. Leave to cool on the side
  4. Place the almonds in the blender and mix it into a flour
  5. Add the soaked dates and chia seeds to the mixture, plus cocoa powder, pinch of salt and 2 tablespoons water (ideally taken from the water your dates has been resting)
  6. Blend it all together to a thick working paste.
  7. Time to create the cups! Use a muffin tray to form your cups. Take a piece of the paste and build a cup inside the tray cup. It will be roughly 7 cups
  8. Put in the freezer for 20 min.
  9. In a food processor, add the bananas, avocado, berries and coconut milk. Blend everything together.
  10. Add the melted chocolate to the food processor and keep blending until you get a thick, creamy texture.
  11. Scoop the mouse into a bowl and place in the fridge
  12. Take out your cups from the freezer. This is a bit tricky! With a table knife, gently scoop out the cups.
  13. Lastly, take out the mouse and start filling your cups.
  14. Finish with some decoration after preference! I used chopped nuts, berries and pumpkin seeds

Notes: If you don’t have any ripe bananas you can put them in the oven for 10 min and they will be much sweeter. Another trick, if you are worried the cups will stick to the tray, use some baking paper to cover the bottom.
