Dr Axe’s Healthy Dark Chocolate Mousse Recipe

Recipe by:author Dina Hassan
Meet the creamiest, richest mousse you’ve ever tasted. Dairy-free and packed with antioxidant dark chocolate, this Paleo dessert keeps things deliciously healthy.
Ingredients
7 oz dark chocolate, roughly chopped
1 1/2 cans coconut milk, refrigerated overnight
1/4 cup raw honey
1/4 cup cocoa powder
Seeds from one fresh vanilla pod
2 squares dark chocolate, shaved, for garnish
Fresh berries, for garnish
Instructions
Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water (don’t let the bowl touch the water). Stir until melted, remove bowl from the heat and set aside to cool slightly.
Take coconut milk out of the fridge and scoop out the thick cream on top.
Place the coconut cream in a medium bowl. Add honey. Using a hand mixer, beat on high for 2 minutes until thick and creamy. Reserve 4 tablespoons of the whipped cream to use as a topping to serve with the mousse. Set aside.
Fold in the melted chocolate, scraped vanilla seeds and cocoa powder. Beat on low for 1 minute, until smooth and thick.
Divide the mousse between 4 small serving glasses. Top with whipped coconut cream, shaved chocolate and berries. Enjoy!
