By definition a Mousse is a dessert that incorporates air bubbles to give it a light and airy texture and can range from light and fluffy to creamy and thick.
I was considering calling this mousse Miracle Mousse because there is no cooking and no eggs or dairy in the recipe yet it is thick, creamy and smooth. I whip this decadent dessert up in five minutes flat, at which time it resembles a chocolate syrup. After refrigerating it for 4 hours it thickens and becomes the creamy deliciousness you see below.
Raw cacao is my favorite for making chocolate recipes, because it is cold pressed and keeps the live enzymes, and you can control what sweetener you use. In this case it was raw, local wildflower honey.
Why should you make this mousse?
- You Crave Chocolate
- You Want to Impress Someone
- You Need A Fast Dessert Recipe Because You Are Busy
- It Has No Refined Sugar
- You Have a Romantic Date
- It Has Clean Ingredients
- It’s Darn Good!
The recipe serves two! How romantic! 🙂
Easy Chocolate Mousse for Two
1 1/2 Cups of Full Fat Coconut Milk (see In My Pantry for my favorite brand)
1/4 Cup Raw Cacao Powder
1/4 Cup Raw Local Honey
1/4 Teaspoon of Pure Vanilla Extract
a pinch of sea salt
Directions: Dump all the ingredients in a high speed blender. I used the big cup on my Ninja blender. I have also made it in my Vitamix. It just needs to be high speed to incorporate those air bubbles that makes chocolate mousse…..mousse. 🙂
Pour into two individual ramekins, serving bowls or cups.
Refrigerate for 4 hours and up to two days.
This is a decadent dessert for chocolate fans! Enjoy!
