chocolate coconut mousse recipe

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.


  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk (chilled)
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 3 teaspoons agave
  • 1 teaspoon 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 it 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.
  6. Enjoy!
