Awesome Paleo/Vegan Chocolate Mousse!
Oh wow, I am in chocolate heaven!
Reboot friendly chocolate mousse, only 3 ingredients, and decadent and delicious!! How can that be? Let me tell you all about it.
Day 14 of my no sugar, no starch, no alcohol, no dairy and no grains challenge, and the only thing I crave is chocolate.
I pinned this recipe on Pinterest a while ago, and today, when I was wondering how I'm going to last another two weeks without a good proper chocolate fix, I remembered this recipe, and saw I do have, mostly, the right ingredients.
The 3 main ingredients are coconut cream, dates and cocoa powder.
I didn't have any coconut cream, only a quarter tin of coconut milk, so I used that, and only about 5 dates, and a small tablespoon of cocoa powder. I forgot about the vanilla essence. It is quite calorie dense, but such a small portion for a Sunday treat - just what I needed!!
It took me about 5 minutes, from start to finish - so another bonus of this chocolate mousse, besides having no added sugar or dairy, is how quick and easy it is! I don't have a food processor, but the stick blender worked fine.
Mia helped me lick the bowl, and she loved it too. Yay!
Find the recipe here! This blogger who created the recipe is my hero!
Try it, and enjoy!
