This chocolate mousse is rich and creamy, and makes a wonderful healthy dessert. A few bites will satisfy your sweet tooth. This chocolate mousse doesn’t require any cooking; it’s very easy and simple to make. You’ll only need a blender. After making the mousse, store it in the fridge for at least an hour before eating it.
The mousse is made with full fat canned coconut milk (don’t worry, the fat won’t make you fat.. It’s all about quality and quantity!), raw cacao (great source of magnesium), raw honey (healing food), vanilla, and sea salt (high quality minerals). If you like cinnamon, you can also add a small pinch to help balance blood sugar.
For the coconut milk, don’t shake the can. You have to scrape the fat part only, which is on the top, and leave out the liquid. Mine was in the refrigerator but I’m pretty sure it would work if it’s your pantry (it will just be softer).
This chocolate mousse is Paleo, and is not vegan or raw since honey is not vegan and since coconut milk isn’t raw. You can add a few berries or sliced bananas to the mousse if you like. I also added a small piece of chocolate for decoration.
This mousse was really good and got approved by the hubby and the kids!
- 1 can of coconut milk, only use the hardened cream part (from the top)

- Open the can of coconut milk. With a spoon, remove the hardened part at the top of the can, and discard the liquid - you won't need it.
