Last night I was craving something delicious in a big bad way. The only problem was, I had no treats made. Boo.
I considered making brownies or working on a recipe for coconut flour cookies, but honestly, I just wanted to grab something and eat it, not reinvent the wheel.
Enter this recipe for paleo chocolate mousse. It takes 5 ingredients and 5 minutes to prepare, and if you’re a real foodie, you probably have everything in your pantry or fridge already. It’s supposed to set up in the fridge for an hour, but just between you and me, I cheated and froze it. It was ready in 15 minutes.
This would be really amazing for a romatic dinner por deux too. Whip it up before dinner, and it will be done setting in time for dessert. And you’ll look like you slaved all day to make it.
(My plugin has gone crazy and the printable version of this recipe is temporarily unavailable. Here is a version of the recipe from my memory, it may vary slightly from the original)
2/3 C Coconut Milk
2 T Coconut Sugar (this is optional)
Pinch of Sea Salt
1 t vanilla extract
1 C soy-free/dairy free chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life brand)
Heat coconut milk in a small pan over moderate heat until it comes to a boil.
Combine egg, sugar, a pinch of salt, semisweet chips, and vanilla in a blender. Turn on blender to low setting. Pour in boiling milk in a slow stream. The hot milk will cook egg and melt chocolate. Blend 1 minute, until smooth.
Spoon chocolate into 4 demitasse cups and chill. It will set up while it cools.
