Dessert doesn’t have to be unhealthy! It is possible to make delicious versions of the food we love using wholesome, healthy ingredients, like dark chocolate–a SuperFood! Research indicates that dark chocolate seems to contribute to heart health by lowering blood pressure and increasing blood flow.1 Excellent! Let’s eat some.
And don’t let the dairy industry fool you into thinking that mousse must contain milk. This vegan chocolate pudding recipe uses So Delicious dairy-free coconut milk to make a mousse so decadent you’ll think you just paid $8 for dessert in a fancy restaurant.
A high speed blender will make this chocolate mousse extra smooth and divine, but a regular blender will work too, you may just have to blend longer.
- 3/4 cups unsweetened So Delicious coconut milk
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (I use Scharffen Berger because it is super dark and rich)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Put all the ingredients into your blender and blend until very smooth. Pour into dessert glasses, put in fridge, and chill a few hours until set.
I recommend using So Delicious coconut milk because it has a good milky consistency and is not too coconutty. If you want to substitute, use a nut milk, but not a can of coconut milk because that might be too thick and fatty. To keep this vegan, use vegan dark chocolate–I use Sunspire Chocolate Chips because they taste rich and amazing.
