I didn’t mean to make Vegan Chocolate Mousse. I meant to make a chocolate smoothie with avocado. Here’s what happened. I was at the store to get the second flu victim his medicine and was wandering around waiting and I came across some Almond Coconut milk in the natural food aisle milk case. Sounded good to me! Into the cart it went.
At home, patient tucked safely in bed, it was time to eat and make up for all the junk I’ve had the past few days. I put all my ingredients in the blender. Too thick. Add more Almond Coconut milk. Hmm. Not getting thinner. Getting thicker. So I stop it to see what’s happening. Apparently, coconut milk has been used by vegans for years to make whipped cream. WHO KNEW!!! I added a little sugar and blended it a little more. Voila! Vegan Chocolate Mousse.
Vegan Chocolate Mousse
2 cups Almond Coconut Milk or just Coconut Milk
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 tbsp sugar or some other sweetener of choice
1 cup ice
1. Put the ingredients in the blender in the order listed.
2. Begin blending on low and slowly increase the speed until the mousse thickens.
3. Chill for 30 minutes.
I’m pretty excited about this treat. I really have been quite a pig the past few days. I know I’m going to want a sweet treat and this mousse will be perfect. And with the tiny amount of sweetener, it will satisfy my craving for sweets but not leave me feeling like I have overdone it.
I hope you’ll give it a try.
