Super Simple, Super Chocolate Mousse

Can I just say that my 21DSD is really putting a cramp on my style?  I pride myself in rarely consuming sugars, but I never realized how much fruit and starch I took in.  Maybe a Whole30 would have been more appropriate?  But then again, this really is an eye-opening experience–and I’m one of those snotty Paleo geeks who thought she knew everything!–and I’m glad I’m doing it.  If nothing else, after a week I could swear I’m sleeping better and my cravings are *somewhat* better.  I’d still knife someone for a sweet potato, but whatevs.

So, this recipe.  NOT 21DSD approved.  It’s an oldie, but I guess I’m craving more than just sweet potatoes today.

This is such a rich and decadent treat…I mean, OMG.  I made it for the first time right after Ross left because I was sad and needed a shot of Chocolate Morphine.  And then I made it a bunch after that.  It’s only three ingredients (maybe four or five if you count any toppings…I’m a fan of even more chocolate chunks and cinnamon) and will leave you seeing chocolate stars without making you feel like you ate a brick the next morning.  OMG, people!!

INGREDIENTS

(Makes About 1 Cup, Serves 1-2)

1 can Full-Fat Coconut Milk

2-3 T Cocoa Powder (depending on how rich you want it)

2-3 T Raw Honey (depending on how sweet you want it)

Toppings: chocolate chips, shredded coconut, dollop of almond butter, cinnamon, etc…

INSTRUCTIONS

Chill the can of coconut milk, unopened, for a few hours or overnight.

Open the can and scrape out the solidified cream layer into a bowl.  Beat vigorously with a whisk or an electric mixer until softened.  Add the honey and cocoa and beat until light and fluffy.

Top with your garnishes of choice, and enjoy!
