chocolate chia mousse
RECIPE TYPE: desserts
SERVES: 4 servings
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream*
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds {I used white chia seeds}
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • pinch sea salt
  1. Add almond milk, coconut cream, chia seeds, cocoa powder, maple syrup, vanilla extract and salt to high-powered blender. Blend on high 1-2 minutes, until completely smooth {scrape down sides as needed}.
  2. Pour chocolate mousse into 4 single serving dishes. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour.
  3. Serve chocolate mousse chilled. Top with fresh berries, mini chocolate chips or sliced almonds {optional}.
*Use thick coconut cream from canned coconut milk, scooped off the top. The coconut cream adds a richness to the chocolate mouse, but 1/2 cup almond milk in place of coconut cream can also be used.
