Orange and Baobab Mousse

orange and baobab mousse

My friend and personal trainer, Alice, loves this dessert so much that she asked me to prepare it for a fitness retreat which she was hosting. If you're not familiar with baobab, it's worth acquainting yourself as it's a super fruit rich in vitamin C & with a pleasant citrus flavour, it's a beneficial addition to help boost immunity. I ummed and ahhed about whether to call this a mousse or parfait but the truth is, it doesn't matter what the name is- all you need to know is that it's the perfect balance of creamy and citrus indulgence.

Three great health benefits: boosts immunity, good source of antioxidants, beneficial for bone health

Serves 3

1 cup cashews, soaked overnight and then drained & rinsed
1/3 cup cashew milk
1/3 cup juice freshly squeezed from oranges
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp baobab powder
1 tsp orange zest
Few sprigs of redcurrants, to decorate (optional)

1) Place all of the ingredients, with the exception of the redcurrants, into a food processor and whizz together until smooth and creamy.
2) Divide the mixture evenly between three ramekins or glasses. Refrigerate overnight to set (or freeze, removing 10 minutes before serving). Decorate with redcurrants, blueberries or orange zest to serve.
