LAUREN'S CHOCOLATE MOUSSE! 23 Apr 2014

Mousse

Guys, this is SO good, and really easy to make.  My little loves it, too.  I cut artificial sweeteners out of my life back in college but this recipe really calls for a powdered sweetener - liquid sweeteners make this too soupy.  The only powdered sweetener that I prefer other than date sugar (which is natural) is Nectresse.

Ingredients:  1 can of thick, full-fat coconut milk (I prefer Thai kitchen), 1/4 cup of cacao powder, 4-6 packets of Nectresse (Stevia will do), 1 tsp of cacao nibs, 1/2 tsp of tocos, 1/2 tsp of mesquite, 1/2 tsp of maca.   

To Do:  Pour coconut milk in a bowl.  Stir in cacao powder, Nectresse, and all of your superfood powders until smooth.  Place bowl uncovered in the fridge for a few hours (or overnight!) until it becomes nice and thick.

Why not just use sugar?

Omgosh. Can I eat this for breakfast, lunch AND dinner?! Looks so delic!!

@carol, you can but you'll have sandy/crunchy mousse : ) @Hannah, yes it's awesome. Enjoy!

hello, can powdered sugar be used? thanks

Looks delish. Love that Mars eats topless....very smart!

Ummmm could he be any cuter?!

mars is so cute!

Hi Lauren! Would it be totally bad if I used sugar in the raw?!

Thanks, everyone! I love sharing pics of him. @Natalee, I wouldn't advise using powdered sugar if you're doing the Lithe Spring Clean, but I'm not judging you :) @Samantha, you can, but your mousse will be crunchy. Like, you'll be chewing on sugar crystals. With this recipe, you are literally pouring a can of coconut milk into a bowl, then adding all powdered ingredients and then stirring them together. Crystals won't melt/dissolve, and adding liquid sweeteners, or making a simple syrup out of the sugar will make it way too soupy and it won't set. Good luck!
