Our Paleo Chocolate Mousse is perfect on its own or as layer in our chocolate trifle recipe. Super quick and simple to make and it uses just 3 ingredients (unless you are making your own chocolate which would make it even more rich and delicious).
As always, this is a treat food that is a better alternative to a standard dessert of a similar nature. We choose to create healthier alternatives so that when we want something wicked, we are unlikely to resort to gorging on something that will make us ill.
This recipe uses canned coconut milk which can present some issues for some people, we choose to use Aroy D as this is the only tinned milk we have found that does not contain any thickeners or other nasties.
Coconut milk is a fabulous source of vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6, along with iron, selenium, calcium, magnesium, manganese and phosphorus. Although certain heart health charities recommend you limit your intake as it is full of heart damaging fat... Do your own research and reach your own conclusions on that.
This mousse is a great excuse to use our Great Lakes Gelatin which is a much better option than the gelatin you will find in the baking aisle of your supermarket.
You might want to trying adding some orange or mint essential oil or vanilla extract to the mousse to alter the flavours to suit your tastes.
