|Delicious & Simple Chocolate Mousse (Dairy-free)

I would like to share one of my secret sweet treats that help me overcome my sugar cravings. It's very dairy-free, filling, ready in 5 minutes and packed with good fats. It's also one of the many recipes on my blog suitable for the FAT FAST! Have a look at my post to see why coconut oil is so good for you.

|Delicious & Simple Chocolate Mousse (Dairy-free)Ingredients (makes 2 servings):

Note: When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).

|Delicious & Simple Chocolate Mousse (Dairy-free)Instructions:

  1. Place a can of coconut milk into the fridge overnight. Don’t shake the can before opening. It should get very thick and the solids should separate from water. If it doesn’t, you need to try another brand.
    I recommend Thai Kitchen Organic or Native Forest or any other brand that works good for you. Apart from "creaming" the coconut milk in the fridge, you can use a cream whipper and follow this great tutorial from Vanessa at Healthy Living How To. In my opinion, Aroy-D coconut milk is the best tasting coconut milk made from pure Thai coconuts and water. There are NO additives and it's BPA-free! Unfortunately, it doesn't "cream" in the fridge like canned coconut milk does so it's not suitable for this recipe. Instead, you can use Aroy-D to make Low-carb Cappuccino.

  2. Once thick, transfer to a bowl (without the water!). The extracted cream can be used for whipped cream. Here is a good guide on how to do it.

  3. Whip in the raw cocoa powder - electric mixer will make the mousse really smooth and works best. |Delicious & Simple Chocolate Mousse (Dairy-free)
  4. Add cinnamon and...

  5. Whip it into desired consistency.

  6. Place in a serving glass and garnish with a pinch of shredded coconut or toasted flaked coconut. You can also top the mousse with some berries (blackberries are the lowest in carbs). Enjoy! |Delicious & Simple Chocolate Mousse (Dairy-free) Tip: The mousse is best served after chilled for at lest an hour and then topped with toasted flaked coconut. To toast the coconut, place it on a non-stick pan and let it brown while stirring (1-2 minutes).

Useful tips:

  • Guar gum, which is often added as thickener in coconut milk, may cause digestive difficulties. However, most people use it with no issues.
  • Try to find BPA-free coconut milk. Even if it's not on the label, it doesn't mean there is no BPA: Products are not required to include this information on their product labels. Here is a good resource that explains why we should avoid BPA and some tips for BPA-free products: MarksDailyApple.com

Is this the diet that you follow? You look thin and so pretty! I was wondering though as I'm new to this type of eating, I see this recipe for the chocolate mouse and am wondering about the coconut milk. I was afraid to eat this much saturated fat, mine is 10 grams per 1/3 cup, is this something I need to watch out for, and can I eat it several times a week without worrying that I will clog my arteries?

Thank you so much! Have a look at my post here (saturated fat / cholesterol is nothing to be worried about): ketodietapp.com/.../The-Obesity-Epidemic-and-the-Truth-about-Cholesterol

When it comes to saturated fat, it's all myth. Neither saturated fat not cholesterol cause heart disease. Unfortunately, we've been told this lie for decades and it won't change in the near future (too much money in the low-fat high-carbs business).

Coconut products are very healthy - they contain saturates fat and MCTs: ketodietapp.com/.../Do-you-want-to-lose-fat-faster-Include-coconut-oil-in-your-diet

Check out my "Diet & Nutrition" section, I'll keep adding more content, especially about the ketogenic diet Smile

How do you figure out the nutritional value in the cream after it separates from the water?  

Reply

Martina @ KetoDiet 5/6/2014 8:35:22 PM #

Hi Betsy, I used nutrition values for "coconut cream" which is basically "creamed" coconut milk. There are 4.5 g net carbs in 100g / 3.5 oz.

Just made this for the first time, it is amazing! Too easy to make, yum. Anyone who is a fan of chocolate needs to try this out. I'm just glad my husband doesn't like chocolate, so it can all be mine Smile One serving was so very filling too, a great way to end my day.

Martina -- I love using the creamed portion of the canned coconut milk but dislike wasting the liquid portion that remains.  What could the water portion of the milk be used for?

Martina @ KetoDiet 1/25/2015 9:28:20 PM #

Hi Stephanie, how about adding it to smoothies? Smile

Bec 1/29/2015 9:49:50 PM #

Just wondering, your creaming coconut milk, but would coconut cream not work?

Reply

Martina @ KetoDiet 1/30/2015 8:37:53 PM #

Hi Bec, I think coconut cream should be the same as "creamed" coconut milk. At least it is based on the products I've tried Smile

Hi, new to keto made choc mousse, found cinnamon, a little bitter, so made again without, really yummy! Thanx for recipe

Martina @ KetoDiet 3/25/2015 6:55:55 PM #

Thank you Julie, glad you liked it! You may want to try vanilla extract / vanilla bean instead Smile

Tara 4/8/2015 1:54:48 AM #

I made it today (THANK YOU) and used pumpkin spice instead of cinnamon. It was very nice! I'm also thinking that lavender extract with my vanilla stevia drops would be a fun alternative.

THANK YOU again! I don't cook--I barely even prepare or throw together (I live at Chipotle), so if I bothered to do it, just about anyone can/should. Love this recipe!

Martina @ KetoDiet 4/9/2015 6:03:54 PM #

That sounds yummy! I've tried lavender ice-cream which I personally liked but it's an acquired taste. I'll share it soon Smile Thanks for trying my recipe Tara!

I have a android tablet. Tried several times to download keto app. Wouldn't download. I bought another app that did download but it was not as good as yours with totals of my macs so my question to you is when will it be available for me on my lenovo android tablet. Really like your blogs and recipe but need a good app for total macs. Pam

Martina @ KetoDiet 6/3/2015 8:14:17 PM #

Hi Pam, we are actually planning to make our app available on Android this year. We will do our best to have it ready asap Smile

I am a tad confused . What part of the coconut milk do I use in the recipe - the water or the solid part ? Thanks

Reply

Martina @ KetoDiet 6/3/2015 8:12:17 PM #

Hi Amber, it's the solid part that I used - the creamed coconut milk. The water is not used in this recipe.

I just made this & put in fridge for dessert tonight added coconut flakes & a few fresh rasberries for sweetness as I don't have the sweetner.

Just made this for dessert I added a few fresh rasberries for sweetness, I liked it but others family members thought it was too bitter

Martina @ KetoDiet 6/29/2015 7:31:38 PM #

Glad you liked it! Yes, I think most people would need to use some sweetener so you may want to add some Smile
