Raw Cacao Kelp Noodles

Sarah E.

Raw kelp noodles were begging to be used in a dessert recipe. Evidence: They have practically no flavor after you soak them, have a super-awesome texture and there’s like three calories for a big bowl, and they’re available in many health food stores for only a few bucks. They soak up sauces (check out the wonderful Heather Pace‘s delish-looking recipes for savory raw vegan kelp noodles) and keep their form in both hot and cold dishes. Imagine eating raw cacao-coated kelp noodles, oozing with flavor but still light and low on the glycemic index. Yes!

I hope others start experimenting with the concept of kelp in dessert!


Ingredients
Kelp noodles
raw cacao paste (I recommend sourcing from Vivapura)
coconut flakes
water
sea salt
stevia.

Instructions
Soak kelp noodles for a while; 20 minutes is good, or you can do longer if you’d like them to be a bit plumper. Melt the cacao paste (with a dehydrator, or on the stove with low heat, or in the sun…), then add a bit of cold water and immediately stir frantically until it becomes a mousse. Add in stevia to taste and a dash of sea salt. Then, toss in the kelp noodles and coat evenly. Chill in the fridge. Add a sprinkle of coconut as garnish, or perhaps some other topping you’d like. Enjoy!
