Cinnamon Marshmallow Mousse and an Adelaide Dessert Class

I'm in love... with my latest creation - Cinnamon Marshmallow Mousse. It's fluffy, springy, soft and downright delicious. I guess I'm on a bit of a kick, since I posted a Dark Chocolate Mousse only days ago. This one is inspired by the Cinnamon Chaga Mousse that I made a few months ago.

I'll be teaching a raw dessert class in Adelaide on Sunday March 6th! I'm so excited about this. It will be my second class in Australia, as I will also be teaching in Byron Bay. Here's the info:

Cinnamon Marshmallow Mousse

1 cup irish moss gel*
3/4 cup cashews
6 tablespoons water
6 drops stevia
5 tablespoons coconut nectar or maple syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon lecithin powder
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Seeds of 1/2 vanilla bean
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg
Pinch of himalayan salt
1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil

Blend all but the coconut oil, until smooth and creamy in a high speed blender.
Add the oil and blend to incorporate.
Spoon into ramekins or dessert bowls and chill in the fridge until set (minimum of a few hours).
Garnish with your favorite goodies!

*Irish Moss Gel
3/4 cup water
2 oz soaked irish  moss
Rinse a handful of irish moss in cold water until any bits of debris have been removed. Keep rinsing until the water runs clear.
Allow the moss to soak in cold water for 6-12 hours.
Chop the moss and blend it with the tea or water until it warms up and turns into a gel.
Chill the gel in the fridge for 5-7 days, or use immediately.

    I have to try making my Irish Moss gel again, the last batch still smelled like the sea :( Bummer--had to pitch it.<br />I had gotten your Lava Cake recipe from the free download and made them for my Mom's birthday last night. They were spectacular. I posted about them and referred people to your blog.:)<br />Peace & Raw Health,<br />Elizabeth<br />www.rawlivingandlearning.blogspot.com

    Your raw dessert class is in my hometown, on my birthday, and I'm in another state until the following weekend. I hope you enjoy your time in Adelaide though. It's a beautiful little city with the most wonderful markets.

    Awesome that you're preparing for this class in such style. And this mousse is cacao-free too, so I guess I'll have to try it! I adore irish moss--may be my new favorite food.<br />love<br />Ela

    Oooh, I can't wait to try this. I made your chocolate mousse last week. The rich flavor and the airy, fluffy texture made for a truly decadent dessert.

    Hi, <br />seeing here that you are teaching a raw dessert class seems like you're promoting a raw vegan diet despite its ill effects on your own health. i appreciate your blog and understand that you are doing what works for you, but it just seems odd. i understand not wanting to have to subscribe to eating "labels," but teaching a raw dessert class seems like you are falsely subscribing to one.i've never commented before on your site, but felt compelled to on this. i wish you all the best.

    Ohmigosh you mean you are in Australia? Are you coming to Sydney? Would love to attend one of your classes!! Heather, I hope you don't mind but I linked to one of your posts, I just wrote an essay-length post on animal products and incorporating them back into my diet again for health reasons. Your bravery and honesty was completely inspiring, thank you so much.

    Girl, this looks amazing, but what I want to know is, how are you having time and the space to get so creative whilst living out of a backpack? Go you! xxx

    Wow! This is the first one of your recipes I have tried, AND my first time working w/Irish moss. Just the gel smells like the ocean, but when it is in a recipe, it no longer smells or tastes like that. I have used it also in a mayo recipe, a salad dressing, some smoothies, and some almond mylk. I love this stuff, and this mousse recipe will be made frequently. It's great, and I'm so glad I found your site.

    Hi there, I know this is an old post, but I am just wondering if I can substitute the lecithin powder for liquid sunflower lecithin as its the only one I can find. (I refuse to use soy lecithin). <br /><br />Thanks :)<br />Angie

    Hey there, what can I do if I do not access to any Irish Moss gel? Can anything else be used as a sunstitude? Can I just skip that part? Thank you :)

    The irish moss gel is a mandatory part of the recipe - it males up the bulk of it. I haven't experimented to see what else would work in it's place but you could play and just use more cashews and coconut oil and see what you come up with! :)
