Keep "stylishly sinful" with Karolina Eleonora's decadent recipe for a chocolate mousse containing both coffee AND chlorella. After-all, to be a true raw foodie you must get a little crazy in the kitchen at least once in a while! If you don't do coffee use maca instead for a malty flavor and nice mellow energy boost.

Victoria Leith from Caramelia Cakery says, 'I saw a recipe by Delia Smith today for a Christmas Chocolate Log and wanted to make a no-bake version. I have used xylitol in this cake for the icing as it's a perfect substitute for refined icing sugar, but of course it is not raw. It is becoming increasing popular however in raw creations and felt that for a one-off treat, I would use a birch-derived xylitol from Finland.
