Imagine a dessert that's rich, creamy and loaded with chocolate flavor — but is dairy-free. An after-dinner treat that will replenish your body and you can feel good about serving. And best of all, it doesn't require fancy ingredients, a trip to the store or any funky kitchen gadgets.
Stop imagining and get in the kitchen, because it's time for my Bone Broth Protein Coconut Chocolate Mousse!
This homemade mousse is easy to make and so good for you. Coconut cream gives this protein mousse that lovely silky feel you expect without a drop of milk, while using coconut sugar keeps it free from refined sweeteners.
But the biggest hack in this dessert is the addition of Bone Broth Protein. This innovative protein powder is a terrific source of collagen, promotes gut health and supports healthy skin. Did I mention it tastes great, too?
You've got to try this coconut chocolate mousse.
How to Make Coconut Chocolate Mousse
Open the cans of coconut milk and use a spoon to remove the cream on top of each can. Add the cream to a medium mixing bowl and stick it in the refrigerator.
Next, in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, add in the coconut sugar, chocolate and coconut water. Stir it together until well-combined. Then increase the heat to medium and add the Bone Broth Protein and cocoa powders. Refrigerate until cool — I just stick the pan in there to avoid washing another dish.
Now, remove the chilled coconut cream from the fridge. Use a handheld or stand mixer — or a whisk if you want an upper-body workout — and whip the coconut cream until it's fluffy.
Pour the cooled chocolate protein mixture into the whipped coconut cream. Now whip the two together until they're well-combined. Return to the refrigerator and let the protein coconut chocolate mousse chill until it sets, about two-and-half hours.
When the mousse has set, serve it with fresh berries.
