Orange-Tahini Mousse
Serves: 4
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons orange juice (from about 3 organic oranges)
  • zest from 1 organic orange, plus more for garnish
  • ½ cup cashews - soaked in purified water for 1-2 hours or in boiling water for 15 minutes
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 5 tablespoons shaved or finely chopped raw cacao butter (leveled, not heaping)
  • 4 tablespoons tahini (leveled, not heaping)
  1. Combine all the ingredients, except the orange zest, in a high-speed blender. Blend on high for about 30 seconds to a minute, until completely smooth. Add the orange zest and pulse on low, until just incorporated.
  2. Distribute the mixture between about 4 ramekins or small cups. Refrigerate for an hour, or until completely set and enjoy, garnished with more zest. After the mousse has been refrigerated for a while, remove from the refrigerator about 5 minutes prior to eating.
