Saturday, February 13th, 2016

Looking to impress a special someone? Whip up some chocolate coconut mousse and indulge a little with this creamy, chocolatey goodness.

This recipe takes minutes to make, and is also gluten-free and dairy-free. While coconut milk is high in fat and should be used in moderation, it is a good source of vitamins and calcium, and has been shown to provide a number of health benefits.

Chocolate Coconut Mousse

  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk (chilled)
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3 tsp agave
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Place coconut milk in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. This helps the cream separate from the liquid.
  2. Spoon the coconut cream out of the can and place in a large bowl or mixer. There will be liquid left at the bottom of the can – you don’t need that.
  3. Add the chocolate, agave, vanilla, and salt.
  4. Whip until it is smooth and creamy.
  5. Serve in bowls topped with raspberries and coconut flakes.
