Key Lime Mousse

by Dr Jo

Another recipe from Dr. Carolyn Dean

This recipe from Shannon Leone’s Raw kitchen is fast and so delicious that it hits the spot every time! Avocados are non-sweet fruits, a source of healing vitamin E, and a source of healthy fat that keeps joints lubricated, provides insulation around nerve sheathes, and is great for the hair and skin.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: None

Yield: 2 servings


2 ripe avocados, pitted and peeled

2 limes, squeezed

1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract

2 tablespoons raw, organic honey

Sprig of mint for garnish

2 strawberries, thinly sliced, for garnish


1. Blend the avocados, lime, vanilla, and honey in a food processor until smooth and creamy.

2. Serve in a dessert cup with a sprig of mint and very thinly sliced strawberries.


Tip: To save yourself time, you can purchase organic lemon juice in bottles to keep on hand for when you don’t have lemons to squeeze.

Vary It! You can substitute 1 lemon for the 2 limes if that’s all you have on hand. And add more lime or lemon juice for a stronger citrus taste. You also can use agave nectar instead of honey.
