paleo chocolate mousse tart

WARNING: This is one seriously addictive dessert. Avoid eating it while trying to making it!

As with all the raw (no-bake) or healthy treats featured on this blog, it’s refined sugar-free, dairy-free and wheat-free.

The crunchy base is mostly made from walnuts, which are a rich source of vitamin E that enhances the immune system, protects cell membranes, and helps make red blood cells. Walnuts are also high in brain-boosting and cholesterol-lowering omega-3 and provide good amounts of protein.

The filling is incredibly easy and literally takes only 5 minutes to make. Serve it immediately after you’ve taken it out of the freezer as the mousse melts into the base if you leave it out for too long. Hope you love it as much as I do!
