Summer is approaching and I’m sure many of us are trying to keep trim for the impending short shorts season. I still want my sweet fix, but one that won’t erase the hours of Brazilian Butt Buster workouts. I’m sure we can all relate… So I’ve whipped up this dairy and sugar free Mocha Mousse for some very naughty, but equally delicious indulgence.
With a hint of chocolate and full-bodied coffee flavour, this mousse is delicately topped with chopped hazelnuts and a chocolate covered coffee bean to serve as an equally impressive, but easy-to-make dessert for guests, or even a night-in solo! Why not make an impressive dessert just for yourself!
Guilt-Free Mocha Mousse
You will need…
1 can full-fat coconut milk
2 Tblsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 Tblsp Stevia (you can use regular sugar if you wish)
2 tsp coffee extract, or 1-2 Tblsp strong espresso
1 cup hazelnuts, finely chopped
4-6 chocolate covered coffee beans (optional)
Flip the coconut milk can upside-down and place in the fridge for several hours to cool. The coconut cream will separate from the coconut milk. Remove from fridge, keeping it flipped-upside down, and open the can from the bottom side. Drain out the coconut milk. You will have coconut cream left at the bottom! Scoop this out and place in a large bowl.
In a stand-mixer or with electric beaters, whip the coconut cream until light and fluffy. Add the cocoa powder, Stevia, and coffee extract. Whip until well combined.
Spoon the mousse into your serving cups, and place in the fridge to chill for another 20mins. I used glass espresso cups as serving cups. You can also spoon the mousse into a pastry bag, and pipe the mousse into the serving dishes (which is what I did), for a cleaner presentation.
Remove from fridge and sprinkle the tops with the finely chopped hazelnuts, and finally one chocolate covered coffee bean.
Makes about 4-6 servings in espresso cup size portions.
This summer don’t miss galavanting around town in a pair of leather shorts. For a chic look, pair with a casual and modest top. Show some leg, but don’t give it all away! Cute shoes with a pop of colour are a must.
