Dairy Free Chocolate Mousse

Looking in my pantry last week, my daughter was begging me to make something. As she does on a daily basis. I wasn’t really in the mood for baking anything so we decided to use a can of coconut cream as our main ingredient and work around that.

I’m in a bit of a coconut craze this year – I thought it would waver but alas it has continued. Coconut milk for curries and cream for desserts are the go-to ingredients with shredded coconut for a chocolate slice and coconut oil for nearly everything like zucchini fries!

The weather is warming up in the southern hemisphere and I find I’m naturally progressing over to cooling foods. This is why I love raw recipes.

This mousse is absolutely moreish and decadent. Being dairy-free and fructose-free it’s the perfect dessert in moderation for when a sweet treat is in order.

Dairy-Free Chocolate Mousse


1 x 400ml can of coconut milk (the light stuff may not set as well, even though I have tried both with success)

1/2 cup organic cacao powder

1/3 cup rice malt syrup

3tbs psyllium husk

1/4 cup chia seeds

How to make

Simple as .. Place all your ingredients in a bowl (or thermomix) and with an electric whisker mix on high speed until well combined. Pour into 4 glasses and place in the fridge until set. At least 3 hours but the longer you leave it the better (overnight is perfect).

Serve with yoghurt and berries

    Looks yummo Karla and I was as big a coconut fan as you but sadly since being pregnant I’ve totally lost my coconut mojo. Anything coconut makes me want to retch, hoping once bubba arrives I’ll be able to jump back on the fabulous coconut wagon again! X

    Just so you know, coconut milk and cream is not fructose free. In fact, it is very high in fructose. Wish this recipe could work for me.
