Whipped Coconut Cream Chocolate Mousse

baking chic December 28, 2012 7

I was looking for a rich chocolate mousse this last weekend and my sister recommend Whipped Coconut Cream Chocolate Mouse, garnished with Whipped Coconut Cream. With only three ingredients, which I always have on hand, (Cream from a can of Coconut Milk, dark coca powder and 3 tablespoons sugar) this mousse did not disappoint me. My sister has a great step by step  “How To” tutorial for Whipped Coconut Cream here which you can also use for the Mousse.

After whipping it up I started to get excited. The coca powder  adds to the  consistency of the whipped Cream, which makes it a thicker density. When I dolloped the whipped coconut cream on top and sprinkled some pomegranate seeds for garnish I was so excited to taste it. Low and behold, this pudding was smooth and velvety and  hit that perfect chocolate craving I was in need of.

It serves two but certainly is rich in flavor and a little bite goes a long way.

Whipped Coconut Cream Chocolate Mousse
1 Can of Coconut Milk
3 Tablespoons dark Coca powder
3-4 Tablespoons Sugar

Place a can of coconut milk in the fridge 24 hours before you make your mousse. I have to increase the temperature in my fridge to make sure the cream on the top of the can gets frozen but not crystalized. When your can is ready to use open and scoop out the cream on top thats on top of the water. With an electric mixer start whipping the cream. Once it starts to thicken add 3 tablespoons sugar. Whip until mixed. Remove about 3 tablespoons of the whipped cream and set aside for garnish. Next add your Cocoa Powder, whip until thick. Place your Chocolate Mousse in your cups and garnish with whipped cream and pomegranate.

Enjoy 🙂

    I just saw your recipe on RecipeNewZ and had to stop by, because yesterday I also posted a super similar recipe on my blog (originally from Vegan Magic). Only my recipe also uses dates, which adds quite a bit of work. I will try your version next time. It should be the simplest chocolate mousse ever, and I bet really yummy! Love your pics and your site! Happy New Year!

    Okay…. I finally got over here. It looks so, so, good. I wish I had picked up some canned coconut cream yesterday, I would have tried it for our New Years Day dessert. I was wanting to do something like that, but have been a little hectic and didn’t get everything planned out how I would have liked. Your pictures are so, so, beautiful.

    I love you so much,

    Just made this and it’s delicious! Canned coconut cream is definitely the way to go–there’s only a tiny bit of water to pour off. Took about 3 minutes from start to finish!
