Paleo Chocolate Mousse

chocmousse Last night I was feeling creative, so I decided to make chocolate mousse. This mouse is light and 100% dairy free. It has a light chocolate flavour and is not overly rich. Perfect for a guilt free dessert (or as an alternative for chocolate icing).

Ingredients
  • 2 x 400ml cans coconut cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon gelatine powder
  • 5 tablespoons cacao powder (unsweetened)
  • 4 tablespoons raw honey
Instructions
  1. Place two tablespoons of boiling water in a mug and add gelatine powder and stir until well combined then add vanilla extract.
  2. Pour the two cans of coconut cream into a saucepan and place on medium heat.
  3. Stir the coconut cream until it starts to boil and add in the gelatine mixture.
  4. Stir continuously for a further two minutes then remove from heat and pour into a bowl.
  5. Place bowl in fridge and leave to set overnight.
  6. The following day, place the coconut cream mixture (which has set and is jelly like in texture) into a large mixing bowl.
  7. Add the cacao powder and honey and beat with a mixer until well combined.
  8. Place in a serving bowl (or individual serving bowls) and place in fridge to set (allow approximately two hours although if using as an icing, leave to set overnight so that it is much firmer).
Notes
This mousse has a light chocolate taste. Once you have reached the final step, if you want the mousse to be richer, you can add additional cacao powder. If you want it to be sweeter, you can add more honey. Although keep in mind too much cacao powder will make the mousse richer (but also more bitter).
