Chocolate mousse with a twistPosted in Desserts on September 20th, 2009 by monicajane
This was a total spur of the moment experiment. I generally don’t eat sugar and generally this includes natural forms of sugar such as honey, agave nectar, maple syrup etc.
Every now and then though I get a bit of a bug to have something sweet. Today I got that bug and wondered what I could make. I have raw cocoa powder on hand and thought I might do something with that. I surfed around the web a bit and came up with the below recipe that is a mish-mosh of several different recipes as I did not have all the ingredients for any of the recipes I found online.
I have never been a desert maker and so this was me in the land of big question marks.
Blend in the blender:
14 oz can coconut milk
3/4 cup raw cocoa powder
1/2 cup raw honey
1/4 cup raw almond butter
Refrigerate until nicely chilled.
Then mix 6 egg whites until stiff peaks form and fold into the above cold mixture.
This was a goopy but very airy mixture so I chose to freeze it to make it more solid.
Freeze until firm. Yummy delight. My husband likes it much more than I do and he will be eating the bulk of it, which is fine with me. My sweet tooth generally lasts about 2 or 3 bites.
