Tucker Tuesday: Recipe ~ Coconut Milk Chocolate Mousse
scrummy mousse that you can make from coconut milk which is soooo good for you.
It's so easy too and sooo yummy! I am not a big coconut fan either but I couldn't taste one bit of the coconut milk! Might have something to do with the fact that I accidentally added twice as much cocoa as I was meant to though ooops. Below are the correct quantities :)
I only had coconut cream in the pantry so I chilled it for about 5 hours and then whipped it up. There is no water in coconut cream, unlike milk, so I didn't have to drain that off and the cream didn't go solid like the milk is meant to, but it still worked. The cream gave it more of a pudding type texture too.
Coconut Milk Chocolate Mousse
1 can coconut milk or cream
1/4 C plus 1 tablespoon cocoa
1/2 t vanilla
sweetener to taste
Chill the milk until solid, drain off the water and use in another recipe. Or id using cream chill for a few hours.
Whip the milk or cream for a couple of minutes. Add in your sweetener and vanilla. I used about 1/4C honey or there abouts. Whip for a minute. Add the cocoa a little at a time until incorporated. It will thicken a fair bit when the cocoa is added.
Pour into dishes and refrigerate. Easy peasy!!
