2-Ingredient Chocolate Mousse , 0 Comments

When summertime comes, the last thing you want to be doing is slaving away in the kitchen. With this recipe, making a delicious (and good-for-you) dessert is a snap! Coconut cream, the main ingredient in this recipe, is a good source of fiber and is high in medium-chain fatty acids. To make this chocolate mousse, you'll need:

  • 1 can of coconut milk (left in the fridge overnight, so that the cream separates to the top)
  • 3-4 tablespoons of cocoa powder

All you need to do is whip these two together in a blender! Some things to note: be careful when removing the coconut cream from the can. The coconut milk will separate into the thick cream (which will be at the top), and the residual coconut water. You want to lift the cream gently out of the can and NOT use the rest of the water. Also, I have found that blending the coconut cream on its own for a while before adding the cocoa powder helps in creating the correct consistency faster. Lastly, you can decide to leave the mousse in the refrigerator for a few hours to really help it set (for those of you who prefer an extremely thick consistency). I love to play with the toppings for this! Some of my favorite garnishes include; fresh mint leaves (gently bruised), fresh blueberries and raw cacao nibs, raw macadamia nuts, or freshly-grated orange zest with raspberries. Enjoy the simplicity!
