There are very few people in the world who don’t love the hazelnut-y taste of nutella, however with so much sugar packed into one tiny jar, it’s pretty obvious why eating it by the spoonful becomes a childhood past-time. So, if you’re mindful of what you put in your mouth, this raw, homemade nutella cups recipe by Instagram sensation @cleaneatingsurvivalguide is the ultimate alternative!

“The inspiration for this recipe came from my childhood love of nutella. Every bite of this dessert takes me back to sneaking a spoon of nutella as a child, only this dessert is healthier and more nutritious for you!”

Raw Cacao, Ginger And Avocado Mousse Recipe

To celebrate the release of The Detox Kitchen Bible, SHESAID has teamed up with authors Lily Simpson and Rob Hobson to bring you this amazing avocado mousse recipe. Yes, avocado in a sweet dish might seem a bit strange at first, however the duo insists that “it acts as a deliciously thick cream to bring the dark, bitter cacao and spicy ginger flavours together.”

What’s more, cacao is said to help boost your mood and has a similar effect on the brain as being in love does – and with only 315 calories per serve, need we say more!?

Serves 4


2 tbsp coconut oil

2 avocados

1 vanilla pod, split open lengthways

1 tsp finely grated fresh ginger

3 tbsp coconut water

3 tbsp raw cacao powder

3 tbsp runny honey


  1. Put the coconut oil in a small pan and heat gently for 5 minutes until melted. Remove from the heat.
  2. Whilst the coconut oil is melting, slice the avocados in half and remove the stones. Scrape all the flesh into a blender or food processor. Scrape the seeds from the vanilla pod and add to the blender.
  3. Add the grated ginger and coconut water and blitz until smooth. Now add the coconut oil along with the raw cacao powder and honey. Blitz for 2 minutes until completely smooth. (If you don’t have a blender you can mix everything together by hand although the texture may not be as smooth.)
  4. Spoon the mixture into four small ramekins or dessert glasses and leave to set in the fridge for 1–2 hours before serving.
