Guilt Free Chocolate Mousse
Banting / Keto / Vegan Chocolate Mousse For Two
Whips up quickly and easily and is sure to satisfy your chocolate cravings.
You will need:
1/3 cup full fat coconut milk *
2-4 tablespoons Erythritol/Xylitol or sweetener of choice, to taste**1, alternatively, use our Martinnaise Sugar Free Maple-flavour Syrup to sweeten with! It is awesome!!
3 tablespoons cocoa powder use the smaller amount for milk chocolate and the larger for dark (I use 3!)
pinch of a good quality instant coffee (optional)
pinch Himalayan Crystal Rock Salt up to 1/8-1/4 tsp for a 'salted' version if that’s your thing
2/3 cup coconut cream
soft whipped cream Vegan or Dairy – depending on personal preference
flaky sea salt optional
Let’s put it together:
- Heat up coconut milk and sweetener of choice until it just begins to simmer. Mix it up very well with the cocoa, coffee and salt in a small bowl and allow to cool completely (you can do a water bath to speed up the process!).
- Add chilled coconut cream to a chilled bowl and whip until relatively stiff peaks form. Blend in the cooled chocolate mixture.
- Transfer to a serving glass and enjoy right away. Or hold your horses and chill the mousse for a more set version (YUMMY!).
*You absolutely NEED (!!) to use full fat coconut milk here! As lighter versions are simply diluted in water, and they'll make your chocolate mousse icier.
The Sweetener - You can pretty much use whatever sweetener floats your boat! So anything erythritol (some slight cooling aftertaste, but no problem if you are used to it!), xylitol Stevia or a combination of the three! Alternatively, go for sure-fire success and use our Martinnaise Sugar Free Syrup!
