5 Minute Dairy Free Chocolate Mousse
2 cans full fat (canned) coconut milk chilled overnight
4-5 tablespoons cocoa (more or less to your taste or thickness)
3 tablespoons honey or vegan alternative
1 teaspoon vanilla
Having good appliances can make even an ordinary dish into an extraordinary dish. So,before preparing mouse make sure that you are having good appliances. Learn More here about appliances and its usages.
1. Chill your can(s) of full-fat coconut milk overnight.
2. When you are ready to make the mousse, open up the cans and scoop the thick coconut cream into a large bowl, about 1 cup of cream (try to keep as much liquid out of the cream as possible). Dispose of the leftover liquid or freeze it into ice cube trays for using in smoothies. If you need the best kitchen appliances, check on this website
3. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and beat the mixture for 2-5 minutes.
Eat right away or chill it. Mousse will become thicker as it chills in the fridge but it will lighten up again if you beat it before serving. We love to fold in handful of ‘Enjoy’ chocolate chips or sliced strawberries into ours.
Note: If your cream is grainy feeling, it will not make a smooth mousse. This happens from time to time with coconut milk cream. Try using another can and save the other one for cooking and smoothies.
Looks absolutely delicious! I would so love to try some. I love a good mousse and yours look amazing.
I can attest to the deliciousness of this recipes, as this is how I make my pudding! My husband LOVES LOVES it, as coconut and chocolate are his two favorites. I use carob for my son (who is on an allergy-free diet) and also not keen on giving a 3 year old stimulating chocolate. I also make a vegan "mousse" with grade B maple syrup and coffee flavor that is really out of this world (recipe on blog). Makes a fantastic frosting.
I agree with everything you suggested about coconut whipped cream. Often I will have to go through 3 or 4 cans to find the perfect cream (and you know when you find it – you can barely get the spoon in there). I usually keep up to 7 can in the fridge at all times.
And you are sooo right. Coconut cream…and coconut in general, are the dairy-free girl's best friend. 🙂
Thanks for another great recipe and post.

Quick question-What about the "Let's do Organic" Coconut cream? Will that work? I have not personally tried it yet, but found it on Amazon and wondered perhaps if it would work?
I am sensitive to both of the 'gums', and have been unable to get my hands on the Natural Value coconut milk.
Perfect! That was easy, delicious and hit the spot…..twice now in one week. Great alternative for a sweet tooth, and the perfect fast snack while pulling my family BACK off of sugar. Thanks! (and why didn't I think of that?)
How MUCH DOES THIS RECIPE MAKE? I WANT TO MAKE IT FOR COMPANY (7 PEOPLE). WILL ONE RECIPE BE ENOUGH?

Thi will really vary by how much cream you get out of you can of coconut milk. It will likely be different from brand to brand and can to can. !/2 cup of cold cream will yield about 3/4 cup whipped cream, if that helps.
