A creamy chocolate mousse dessert that actually gets its creaminess without any avocado, via PaleoHacks.
Whenever I want to treat myself to an extra fancy dessert, I make this easy Paleo chocolate mousse recipe. With a few simple ingredients, and in less than 10 minutes, you have the perfect treat to satisfy any sweet tooth.
Simply blend all the ingredients together, and voilà, it's ready to eat! You can serve this mousse as soon as it's done whipping or let it set in the fridge for a couple of hours. The longer you leave it in the fridge, the firmer and fluffier it will get.
- 7 oz. dark chocolate, roughly chopped
1 1/2 cans coconut milk, refrigerated overnight
1/4 cup raw honey
1/4 cup cocoa powder
Seeds from one fresh vanilla pod
2 squares dark chocolate, shaved, for garnish
Fresh berries, for garnish
- Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water (don't let the bowl touch the water). Stir until melted, remove bowl from the heat, and set aside to cool slightly.
- Take coconut milk out of the fridge and scoop out the thick cream on top.
- Place the coconut cream in a medium bowl. Add honey. Using a hand mixer, beat on high for 2 minutes until thick and creamy. Reserve 4 tablespoons of the whipped cream to use as a topping to serve with the mousse. Set aside.
- Fold in the melted chocolate, scraped vanilla seeds, and cocoa powder. Beat on low for 1 minute until smooth and thick.
- Divide the mousse between 4 small serving glasses. Top with whipped coconut cream, shaved chocolate, and berries. Enjoy!
