Vegan Chocolate Mousse Recipe

As clean eating became popular I started to develop recipes that were rich in flavour and high in healthy ingredients, just like this Clean Chocolate Mousse.  There are lots of health inducing ingredients such as - 

Dark chocolate is full of benefitical minerals such as potassium, zinc and selenium.  Coconut milk highly nutritious and rich in fibre, vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6 and minerals including iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous and Silken Tofu which is an excellent source of amino acids, iron, calcium and other micro-nutrients

This clean recipe is rich, velvety, and decadent.  Those who don't 'eat clean' would have no idea that this recipe is dairyfree, processed sugar free and vegan friendly.

But shhhhhhhhhhhh, don't tell anyone how easy it is. 

Clean Chocolate Mousse

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 and a 1/4 cups of good vegan chocolate broken into pieces (or good regular chocolate broken into pieces) - do not use carob
  • 12 ounces silken tofu
  • 1/4 teaspoon natural pure almond extract 
  • 1 tbsp Bourbon (you can use a whole range of liqueurs here, whatever takes your fancy) - this is optional, you can add a tbsp of fruit juice instead, such as orange, passionfruit or raspberry juice
  • 1 tbsp Maple Syrup of more to taste
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Rind of one small orange
  • to serve 100g frozen raspberries

 

Method

 

  1. Bring the coconut milk to the boil and lower the heat immediately, stir in the chocolate chips unitl melted
  2. Add all the other ingredients and blend until smooth
  3. Add more vanilla or maple syrup to taste
  4. Layer in a glass or serving dish with frozen raspberries
  5. Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving

 

Tips - for a softer ploppier consistency add another 1/3 cup of coconut milk to the mousse at the beginning, or if a denser mousse is desired use about 1/4 up less coconut milk to begin with.

Enjoy.

That's it for now ...
