The Raw Zinger Mousse is pretty special why? Well it’s a dessert so that makes it a treat, but unlike most desserts/treats that leave you feeling slightly naughty and guilty this little warrior is a healer and especially at this time of year with a rise in coughs, colds, flus and overall poor health.
The Zinger part of the mousse is a jewel of the healing world turmeric, which in short dries up the mucous and removes it safely from your body, it is so awesome you could be suffering from tonsillitis and rather than suffer the best part of 1-2 weeks you could be on your way to great health in just a couple of days when you add this little jewel to your pantry. Like all things in life the magic occurs when your in a relationship and for this Zinger relationship we have coupled turmeric with ginger, which needs no introduction, we all no this fiery root is a great healer.
As usual I put together this dessert with no attention to detail, but simply through feeling the balance of the flavours as I was creating it and I encourage you to do the same remember mistakes are ok and it’s better to make mistakes and learn than follow blindly in my humble opinion. Below are the ingredients I used:
Fresh Turmeric Root
Fresh Ginger root
Filtered water (about 300ml)
1tbsp – coconut oil
1 – Avocado
2 tbsp – Cacao powder
1 – pinch Himalayan salt
1/2 tsp – spirulina powder
6 – fresh dates (pitted)
Take the skin of the turmeric and ginger and place all ingredients into a high speed blender (vita mix or similar), you will need a high speed blender if adding the cashew nuts and flax seeds, if you don’t have a high speed blender leave those ingredients out; you can grind the flax seeds in a coffee grinder if you have one of those. Pour the smooth mixture into your serving bowls and place in the fridge, the longer you leave them in the fridge the harder they will set. Take out sprinkle some hemp seeds or anything else you wish to on top and dive into your Zinger for great health.
Another great use for turmeric is tea:
Blend the ingredients in a blender except the honey, then place in a sauce pan and heat. Pour the tea through a strainer and then add the honey. Cheers to great health.
