If you do not have a dairy intolerance, then you can go ahead and use regular 35% fat whipping cream. I used coconut cream and it was just creamy and dreamy without all of the dairy fuss. You need to refrigerate the coconut cream for at least 24 hours in the refrigerator and I also like to refrigerate the bowl and the whipping beaters as well so that you can get to stiff peaks in no time flat.

Chocolate has been known to have mood-enhancing ingredients and powerful antioxidants that can help boost the immune system. When you eat chocolate something very powerful happens as it sends a "happy message" to your brain and life seems so much better.

Chocolate affects the central nervous system because of these "happy neurotransmitters" . These chemicals heightens sensory perception, increases relaxation and produces a feeling of euphoria and elevates mood. A day without chocolate is like a day without sunshine. I used Lindt's 70% chocolate to stay dairy-free.

Velvety vegan chocolate mousse is the perfect luscious dessert with deep dark dairy-free chocolate and quality coconut cream that whips together in just under 15 minutes.

  • Cook: 15 mins
  • Yields: 4 Adults or 1 Hungry Teenager

Ingredients

chocolate 70% - 190 grams (about 1 cup-chopped) (dairy free dark- I used Lindt)

coconut cream - 15 ounces (443 ml)

sugared cranberries or chocolate swirls - for garnish (optional)

Directions

1Place coconut cream in the refrigerator overnight. (I also like to place my bowl and whipping beaters in the refrigerator as well, as it helps the stiff peaks to form faster)

2In a large metal bowl add cold coconut cream and beat until stiff peaks form. (You can either do this by hand with a whisk, if you feel like building up some muscles, or with ann electric beater)

3Step 2:  Melt the chocolate bar in a microwave, first coarsely chop the chocolate (Save other 20 grams for garnishing or snacking) Place in a microwave safe bowl and heat on 50% power for 1 minute (only put in microwave for 15 seconds at a time and stir and check- do not over heat as chocolate will break). Remove from the microwave and stir. Continue this process until the chocolate is almost melted. Then stir until the chocolate is smooth.  Alternatively, you can melt chocolate slowly on top of a double boiler but make sure that the water on the bottom is barely simmering.

4FYI: Please keeps these following tips in mind when working with chocolate. Chocolate and water do NOT mix and the chocolate will seize up (hardens and cracks) when it comes in contact with water . The steam from the bottom of a double boiler can cause this problem. Make sure to keep your chocolate dry as it melts. If your chocolate does seize up, no worries, you can blend in a teaspoon of vegetable oil and the chocolate should smooth out again. When making chocolate decorations or chocolate swirls, keep chocolate in the refrigerator up to the minute you are ready to work with it, so it does not soften.

5Gently fold melted chocolate into whipped coconut cream until well mixed.

6Spoon velvety chocolate mousse into glass dishes or martini glasses and garnish with chocolate curls or coconut sugared cranberries. Enjoy the chocolate buzz!
