chocolate mousse


Easy decadent dessert with just four ingredients, no heavy cream and eggs. Make this thick, creamy and rich chocolate using coconut cream, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, served with fresh strawberries. 

This is such an easy delicious dessert that looks so elegant when served. It’s also the perfect make ahead dessert for any gathering. 


COCONUT CREAM: Use full fat coconut cream that has been refrigerated, preferably overnight.  When you scoop out the cream there will be coconut water below, so make sure not to shake the can. You can reserve the coconut water for smoothies.

POWDERED SUGAR: I found that using 1/4 cup of powdered sugar has the perfect amount of sweetness. Keep in mind powdered sugar, confectioner sugar & icing sugar are all similar and either can be used in this dessert. If you get the sweetened can of coconut cream adjust the sugar, you may not need the entire 1/4 cup of sugar.

COCOA POWDER: Cocoa powder you can find in the baking aisle of grocery stores. If you like more chocolate flavor increase the amount. 

GARNISH: I used strawberries but use whatever fruit you like. Raspberries and blueberries would also be great as a garnish. Right before serving sprinkle some powder sugar on the mousse.
