Ingredients

  • 15- oz. can coconut cream* chilled
  • 3 Tbsp. powdered sugar or 5-10 drops liquid stevia
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder regular
  • Pinch salt
  • Chocolate shavings optional
  • Raspberries optional
  • Mint fresh, optional

Instructions

  1. Place can of coconut cream in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight. Be sure to shake can of coconut cream before refrigerating so it is well mixed.
  2. Chill bowl and wire whip or beater attachment in the freezer for 30 minutes before beginning.

  3. Once cream, bowl, and whisk are chilled, add can of coconut cream to the bowl and beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. (If coconut cream is still clumpy, add it to a high-speed blender, blend for 30 seconds, and return to the bowl.)
  4. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Continue beating on medium speed for 1-2 minutes or until the cream begins to thicken.
  5. Set aside ¼ cup of the “whipped cream” for topping your chocolate mousse.
  6. Add cocoa powder to the bowl and beat on medium speed until well incorporated. Chill chocolate mousse and whipped cream for 30 minutes to 1 hour in the refrigerator before serving.  (Or overnight for best texture.) 

  7. Serve chocolate mousse in four small or two medium-sized parfait glasses with reserved “whipped cream”, chocolate shavings, mint leaves and raspberries. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

You can also use 2 cans of coconut milk instead of the coconut cream. If using cans of coconut milk, skim the coconut cream off the top of the can and follow the instructions outlined above.

If using stevia liquid extract instead of powdered sugar it will be 366 calories, 10 grams of carbohydrates, 4 grams of dietary fiber, and 0 grams of sugar.
