Another recipe from our Capstone recipe book! This recipe is one of Rosie's favorites. Discovered when she first began trying to eat healthier, it's easy, makes a lot for leftovers, and is deliciously versatile; able to be eaten wrapped in a tortilla, scooped by chips, or doled out with a spoon. Let us know what you think and if you had any tasty improvisations!

Rosie, Becca and I have been having a blast working on our senior Capstone project, a lifestyle recipe book promoting well-being. We have a great time cooking together and then styling the food and photographing it. We all come together as a team, collaborating the entire way.
The best part of all the shoots, though, is when we get to eat the food; it can be pretty difficult to wait. While sometimes the food is cold, it tastes of a sense of accomplishment - and is still always delicious.
This recipe was one of our favorites; Becca and I think it tastes like dark chocolate mousse, it's so smooth! We've made it twice since the shoot, which was also an aesthetic favorite of ours.
Try it out and let us know what you think! We'd love to hear feedback and any creative modifications or additions you may have done.
